Charter Communications Inc. named Danny Bowman chief mobile officer.
In this newly created role, Bowman will head the company's mobile business that will launch this year, the company said March 19. Bowman recently served as chief revenue officer at LeEco North America.
Charter CEO Tom Rutledge recently said the company is on track to launch a mobile offering "in the middle of this year," and to roll out 1 Gbps speeds across all of its markets by year-end. Charter's wireless offering will leverage a mobile virtual network operator agreement with Verizon Communications Inc., as well as Charter's own wireless network.
Rutledge also reiterated his belief that Charter will ultimately be able to offer something superior to the coming 5G technology through "the integration of a small cell architecture using unlicensed and licensed spectrum working together interchangeably with our advanced DOCSIS roadmap."
