Analyst and technology translator Leslie Ellis chipped in "Able Cable" -- or so I thought. She clarified to me that her suggestion was actually an homage to "Miss Abel Cable," a character the cable industry used in days of yore to promote and put a wholesome, friendly face on the service.
Leslie did some more poking around on it, and The Cable Center was kind enough to pass along a couple of images that show Miss Abel Cable in her glory days.
Gary Arlen, president of Arlen Communications, points out that the National Cable & Telecommunications Association (NCTA) still owns the brand.
