The Comcast and Time Warner Cable merger didn't happen, and many agree that is a good thing. That means Time Warner Cable is back up for grabs, and another telecommunications company is said to be eyeing it with acquisition ambitions. That company is the European telecommunications firm Altice, which is under the control of French investor Patrick Drahi. Altice is also said to be in advanced talks about acquiring Suddenlink, a US cable operator. Neither rumors are official at this point, however.
