Tell the FCC: Block the Charter-Time Warner Cable Merger
FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler is poised to make a critical decision about the future of the Internet any day now.
He’ll decide whether to allow Charter’s $90 billion takeover of Time Warner Cable — or stand up for competition and reject the merger.
If this deal goes through Charter will be about the same size as Comcast — and the two companies will offer service to nearly 80 percent of U.S. homes. Without any meaningful competition, they’d be able to charge us whatever they want for our connections. Higher prices would make it harder for people to get online — and would leave way too many people on the wrong side of the digital divide. This would harm low-income communities of color the most.
After you call Wheeler, stay on the line and talk with Commissioners Mignon Clyburn and Jessica Rosenworcel. They need to hear from you too.
If we’re going to stop this merger, we need to speak up now. Call the FCC today.
