The proposed Comcast-Time Warner cable merger is a set up for disaster for internet users and the nation as a whole.
This deal, if approved, will give Comcast an unprecedented share of the communications market and create a dangerous set-up for a monopoly and a limited number of choices for consumer broadband access.
Comcast’s history of high prices and data caps on home use amply demonstrate that this company is not acting in the public interest, nor should anyone expect it to.
Congress and the FCC have a mission to protect our communications infrastructure and its customers. Low priced, unlimited broadband is the key to this nation’s economic viability and future. By narrowing competition in the communications market, such mergers endanger long term national priorities and everyday ratepayers.
Contact the FCC commissioners and Congressman Rush Holt today and encourage them to deny Comcast’s request in the name of the public interest.
