The 25 highest paid executives in cable, telecom and wireless

It’s that time of year again when we sift through an avalanche of regulatory filings to find the highest paid executives.

Some of the major names don’t show up in this year’s list. Altice USA has yet to file an annual disclosure of executive compensation. And, of course, Time Warner Cable has been absorbed by Charter.

But many familiar faces appear. And, as usual, it’s the compensation beyond annual salary (stock awards, incentives, etc.) that pushes some of the annual compensation totals toward astronomical levels.

Make sure to revisit the highest paid executives lists for 2015 from FierceCable, FierceTelecom and FierceWireless.
