Tell the FCC: NO to Buyouts and YES to Buildouts
Just a few weeks after Comcast was forced to abandon its bid for Time Warner Cable, a new buyer emerged: Charter.
Charter's already the nation's third biggest traditional cable company. It wants to buy Time Warner Cable, the second biggest cable company, along with a smaller company called Bright House that is a primary cable provider in cities like Tampa and Orlando.
This new set of deals, with transactions valued at nearly $90 billion all told, would allow Charter and Comcast to control nearly two-thirds of the nation's high-speed broadband customers.
Once again we’re getting corporate buyouts instead of broadband buildout. This isn't the way to get everyone in the U.S. online with better choices and better prices.
Tell the FCC to say NO to the Charter-Time Warner Cable merger.
