It is a shame how we have been sold out in Florida by our politicians and how COMCAST is running roughshod over all of us. Annoying!
Jacinth from Lauderhill, FL
Price hikes for service are already unfair. Stop the merger.
Jose from Miami, FL
Unconscionable liars, thieves and con artist
Kenneth from Portland, OR
comcast cannot buy time warner.
Erin from ozone park, NY
It's absolutely ridiculous what Comcast has been allowed to get away with in Alexandria, Va in particular. However, I blame the representatives of the citizens of this city and country. They do not represent the people. They represent the various lobbyists. Other countries in the world give free wifi to its citizens but we keep our citizens in a fog. Shame on Comcast, Shame on Congress. This could be stopped but we have too many money hungry representatives.
Kathleen from ALEXANDRIA, VA
leave the internet alone. stop doing these huge mergers you guys completely suck
Kenneth from boca Raton, FL
Stop The Merger Its Makes things worse
Jose from North Miami Beach, FL
I already have limited options for ISP's, this merger will only exacerbate this issue. What will be the next company bought by Comcast after they purchase TWC?
Jeff from Odessa, FL
Really, really awful company to deal with. Do not have the time even to explain. It would take hundreds of pages. Please fix this! Let Google through! Corruption keeps this monster alive. Please fix this!
Dragan from Marietta, GA
COMCASTTTTT!!!!! y u do dis
Comcasttttt from Marietta, GA
There will never again be a great America. As long as you allow these monopolies to expand and price couch the American citizens.
Tristan from Yuba city, CA
Please do not allow Comcast to buy Time Warner Cable. The customer sevice level is the worst in the industry and this would guarantee it remains the same or even worse. Comcast will not allow service calls to be transfered to a US representative when the problem is not being resolved. The ticket will simply be closed and the customer will have waisted thier time with no results. Comcast offshore support has a close to 99% reputation of using no logic during a call. If your complaint happened to be intermittent Internet trouble with the call you are on being internet dependent, Comcast would gladly reset your modem with that knowledge clearly in hand and force the call to be dropped so the customer can waste more time calling back in. If you are having email problems and Comcast verifies that they can see your email coming in to thier server, but not being deliverd to the recipient, Comcast has told it's customers to call Microsoft. This complete and total lack of applying any logic to customer problems will only get worse when there is less competition.
Steve from Littleton, CO
stop trying to take over everything!!!!! I DONT USE CABLE TV AND WILL NEVER DO SO. STOP TAKING MY HBO AWAY FROM STREAMING....
Roshan from DOUGLASVILLE, GA
We need to put a stop to monopolies, Don't allow this merger. what we NEED is more COMPETITION!
Norman from Englewood, FL
Stop comcast. They are an unethical company
John from jobstown, NJ
please stop merger. thank you
Maurine from Williamsburg, IA
how can Comcast pay for their employees to protest against the President? I believe they have a right to express freedom of speech but no company should be able to pay for this right. the merger would allow them to monopolize the market , and have a lager base to buy more protesters to express their political agenda!
Arthur from Pittsburgh, PA
You must prevent this merger in order to maintain what limited competition remains!
Adam from ANNVILLE, PA
Don't let them buy Time Warner or any other ..

Stop The Media Merger now
Linda from Hollywood, FL
please don't let this happen it will hurt many Americans
Muaz from Katy, TX
I live on social security disability and my only discretionary income comes from a part-time work at home job using the inernet. 40% of my net pay goes to Comcast to pay for internet access, which leaves very little left. There is no competition for Comcast where I live and they can charge whatever they want and give you bad customer service because they know you don't have a choice. Please stop the merger so I can continue to work and not pay more for internet service.
Patrice from BYRON CENTER, MI
More competition makes a freer press.
Joann from Wonder Lake, IL
please stop the merger. there is no advantage for the average citizen.
Greg from Brooklyn, NY
DO NOT allow AT&T to become a monopoly again. This is a basic anti-trust position. Prove that this country is NOT an oligarchy. Thank you.
Rick from Austin, TX
Alone they're already too big
Patrick from Pittsburgh, PA
Stop the merger. This type of acquisition reduces competition and gives these corporations too much control over price. This also could reduce the quality of service because people can be locked into contracts and reducing Time Warner/AT&T's incentive to increase services and quality.
Angela from San Francisco, CA
Stop the merger. AT&T is taking over the Internet and Cable choices leaving the Consumer with no real choices. AT&T has already taken over Direct-TV now they want Time Warner...no! AT&T is once again becoming a Monopoly. Stop The Merge!!!
Vincent from Houston, TX
Make the ISP business a free market again!
Nathan from Champaign, IL
Please stop the merger between Comcast and Time Warner because this country needs to have representation of its demographic, which will be even harder if there is less competition in the media.
Yara from Fall River, MA
If you don't stop Comcast from acquiring Tim Warner Cable, then you are essentially supporting anti-capitalism. Do something.

Charles from red hill, PA
Agencies like Comcast, Cox Cable and Time Warner cable are not service providers, the are predators. They sign exclusivity agreements in towns where residents are overwhelmingly poor, young or unable to use monetary resources to fight the quixotic fee structure and policies that gouge those with no money for every last cent. Please do not hand the most powerful companies in America another victory at the cost of the poorest and most endangered American citizens. You are a government of the people for the people. For once, please act on that promise.
Jonathan from Burlington, MA
Stop this merger, it isn't fair to Americans
George from Houston, TX
Comcast already owns Hillary and her establishment cronies. Break up these greedy corporations now to revive the free press and a government by and for the people.

Frank from Stephenson, MI
Unfair increases on cable services, should be banned... Stop this Merger immediately !
Eileen from Staten Island, NY
Do not take over the Internet.
Hermine from Glendale, CA
Proposed Comcast merger will destroy free press! Please don't approve.
Adam from New Orleans, LA
A practical monopoly that will be too big to care and too big to fail. buy its chief rival, Time Warner Cable. If approved, this deal would create a television and Internet colossus like no other. Comcast is the country’s #1 cable and Internet company and Time Warner Cable is #2. They both regularly rank at the bottom of the barrel in customer-service surveys. Put them together and you get one subpar giant offering service to two-thirds of U.S. homes. Putting this much power in the hands of one company is dangerous. This deal would lead to less consumer choice, less diversity and much higher cable bills.
Richard from Waimanalo, HI
Ive had internet service through Comcast for 8 plus years. Im booted off of the internet at least every other day. Their service is a Joke. Im only with them because there is no other. Im already paying too much for a service that i dont get.
Nissa from Everett, WA
Comcast in my opinion is not consumer friendly and is hard to deal with. Please do not allow this merger.
Gayle from Delray Beach, FL
Stop this merger--they are already too big.
David from Boone, IA
Help us (senior citizens on fixed incomes)Comcast now raises its prices once or twice a year. Comcast changes the name or title of a item listed on your bill. An outlet adapter for a second tv (which is limited content and HD) was free , now they charge $3.99mth. Going on vacation, too bad pay still pay for service. Want internet only and not a triple play plan, look at what they get away with charging. Your number one priority is doing the right thing for WE THE PEOPLE
Elisa from The Villages, FL
Enough is enough. Do not merge.
Marty from OKC, OK
I am Not a subscrber to either party but am thinking of getting one or the other. In the past extremely expensive and now only internet affordable. So I Do Not want a Goliath in the cable industry. Many years ago you broke up AT&T for just that reason. True there are many options available. But what happens when COMCAST/TIME WARNER start to buy out the competition? Some mergers buy out a BIG or Small company but keep the name to make it look like their are other providers. If merger allowed, then I suggest ALL internet,cable etc. have a set limit of price NOT to exceed $19.95 for single service (a.k.a. only interent or only cable, etc.) and $50 in a combo package ( internet plus cable tv, etc.). These prices at end of year CANNOT be adjusted higher for any reason. And make sure there are NO LOOPHOLES!!
Kyle from Milwaukee, WI
Comcast internet ONLY is a ripoff. I'm a senior citizen with a low monthly income. Internet access is a necessity today and that is especially true of seniors. Comcast is making internet access an expensive utility and being the only one providing internet access I feel like I am getting robbed. And the arrogance of customer service is deplorable. Something, somebody, needs to stop this fleecing of the American public. Why is this allowed to continue. It makes me a little suspicious of the politics that might be involved that allows this issue to continue. It has been long enough. At least allow competition where there is none. Allow competition without the pressure to stay out of Comcasts areas. It is all a disgrace.
Jim from Attleboro, MA
Whenever Charter is able to act unilaterally, it raises prices, lowers the quality of service, removes choice from customers, lowers the quality of customer service, and raises prices again. Charter acts deceitfully in its advertising, its service, and its descriptions of its offerings and customer choices. Charter is a prototypical evil corporation, and letting it become a monopoly or duopoly can only make it worse.
Mark from Ellensburg, WA
this morning i woke up and signed in and realized that my web address was like a mile long after doing a little research i found that Comcast is invading my life
Chaz from Tucson, AZ
When you have to pay more for your Comcast bill than your utility bill and receive the worst customer service in the world something is wrong. Comcast wants to control the Internet and control our freedom of speech. They go as far an encrypting signals to force user to get a modem so they can control everything you want watch. I,m on social security and get no cost of living raises but Comcast can increase the cost of service 20 to 50% without can controls. We need the Fcc to stop Comcast and start getting back the free channels we deserve....
Jeff from Southwick, MA
I have had 5 + service calls in a month so far w/Time Warner. Please stop the merger...I believe Comcast is going to make service issues skyrocket! I wish there were more individual cable companies. This need for dominating markets is getting ridiculous!
Gisela from Wichita Falls, TX
Please don't do this to us!
Carrie from Spring Hill, TN
The only thing I'm making this complaint is because Comcast doesn't have Boomerang. That was my childhood and it doesn't have one channel that many people wanted. And they always have technical difficulties and I'm sick and tired of it. I this company doesn't do anything, I might switch.
Kevin from Coon Rapids, MN
Please don't ruin the internet for everybody.
Julia from newtown, PA
This should not happen. Its called because this company would be such a powerful monopoly which would not allow competition for competitive pricing
Wayne from Kingston, NY
This merger must be blocked. My vote goes directly towards avoiding monopolies and encouraging free market competition
Jon from Brooklyn, NY
Do not alloow the Time Warner Cable, Comcast merger.
Irvin from Murrieta, CA
All of these mega mergers have to stop. We dont want one cable company, one pharmacy and one insurance company. We want options and the change that everyone can at least dream of owning a business.
Carlos from Palm Beach Gardens, FL
I am a comcast customer but wouldn't be if I had a choice. Because of their monopolistic position, I am forced to pay ridiculous prices for a terrible service. I can't get through to customer service because they simply don't care. They know I can't go anywhere. Stop the merger with Time warner. Force Comcast to experience competition so they stop mistreating and abusing customers.
Isabelle from miami beach, FL
I would hate to have comcast take over the internet.
Judy from Ann Arbor, MI
We are a small business in Indiana, I spent several months arguing with Comcast, at their corporate level. In short for charges to my business for services I never wanted and was told I have no choice. This company does not care about its customers. Allowing this company to grow larger will only hurt more people. Who will compeat with them to keep prices low? Look at Netflix, they bullied them until they got what they wanted. That is exactly what they do to their customers, one by one. I am not customer because I want to be. They have a monoloply in my business area, If I want to operate I have to have Comcast.
Lisa from McCordsville, IN
keep the market open and avoid a monopoly
Robert from wilton Manors, FL
It is already difficult to get unbiased news. Please don't allow this merger. We need programs like One America News!
Randy from La habra, CA
A monopoly will not fix Comcast`s already bad service and will allow the giant to raise it prices higher.
Ptolemy from Grandville, MI
Please do not allow this merger to go forward.
Thomas from Rensselaer, IN
Not only do we need this merger to NOT happen, honestly, we really need Comcast to just... die. Comcast is a provider that does not provide, and it sickens me that they get away with it all. The speeds for which consumers pay are RARELY anywhere near the speeds that they receive. We pay and pay, and we get fractions of the service promised. Absolutely ridiculous. A small business would never get away with providing such shoddy service. Do not give this self-centered, irresponsible and deceptive company any more power or influence. With no other options in my area, I am stuck with this incredibly disgusting company.
Daniel from Lebanon, PA
Comcast is a monopoly in my area. We need fairly priced, unlimited bandwidthsolutions for ALL of Americans. The internet is a resource to all people. When you limit the internet you limit speech, progress and innovation.
Christopher from Manchester, PA
Want to save American lives? Kill this merger. Every time an american calls Comcast customer "support", their blood pressure spikes to unhealthy levels. On a mass scale, Comcast is responsible for slowly killing the population. They are pure evil.

Please do not let these company merge or any other big cable companies or cellular companies merge.It will be like a MaBell and they will have a monopoly over pricing and service standards.Let free market dictate(and if some of them are in financial trouble),let them fail and the free market pick thru the pieces.As a consumer,I truly don't think that big mergers like this are to my benefit,in any way.
Shane from Lagrange, GA
there is no competition in the service provider market. I just want internet. I have searched and searched and I can only find Comcast who have marginalized their customers to the nth degree. The only thing that keeps the consumer from being a slave to corporate america is competition. As far as internet service providers go, there is none. It's a joke! American government has reached critical mass in terms of disfunction. No one complains because they either don't have the time or they've become the Orwellian sheep the power brokers had hoped they would.
G from Acushnet, MA
Monopolies are BAD FOR COMPETITION. Time Warner can't deal with its customer base now, merging them will take customer service to a new low and prices to a new high

Stop this ridiculous cycle. My cable bill is almost as much my car note. I'm already forced to use Comcast instead of the carrier I want because they happened to be the first on my street!

Media consolidation hurts independent and non-corporate broadcasters in the form of monopolization of our limited airwaves. This eventually leads to very limited opinions and viewpoints which are fundamental to a functioning democracy. Our government should not allow this merger because it will not be good for the ordinary citizens of this country.
Abayomi from Atlanta, GA

Anthony from Las Vegas, NV
Comcast is huge and rich enough. For Pete ' s sake just knock it off already.
The very idea of a single company taking over the Internet is intolerable and absurd. If you care to be reelected and adored rather than seek short-term gain and be hated, please stop this merger.

More monopolies equal even more corruption
I was a customer of Comcast for many years and I hated every second of it. Every time i called in, they messed up something on my account, often deliberately. I had no choice as i needed internet for work and Comcast was my only option. Fortunately i was able to free myself from them, but this deal needs to be thrown out. How this farce of a proposal could possibly be good for the consumers of America defies any logical reason. Stop this merger, or expect your lack of support to be reflected in the next election as I will NOT vote for you.

A from Oklahoma City, OK
I strongly oppose this merger, and hope the relevant regulatory agencies and elected officials will do what's best for the country and do so as well. I am an extremely dissatisfied Comcast customer. I can only imagine how much worse the service the company provides will become once another competitor is removed. I agree with other posts that the merger is bad for consumers, bad for the economy, bad for innovation, and bad, ultimately, for democracy.
A from Washington, DC

Melody from New York, NY
Please do not destroy net neutrality I currently live in an area where there is only one internet provider and I am currently paying over 60 dollars for 1mbps which is insane if Comcast and time Warner cable destroy net neutrality everyone in the USA would be paying the same amount for the same speed which is not enough to even load a Google web page I'm one minute. It is impossible to get any work or homework done with such slow speeds and insane amount of money per month

Lauren from Portland, OR
It is easy to see why Comcast is #1 as it expends huge amounts of resources on marketing and sales and very little on effective service. The company is often the only Internet option, as in my area, leaving customers victims price increases ASAP post-introductory plans and costly unbundling service, i.e., higher Internet absent cable or phone. After a move last year, Comcast was unable to solve an issue with online access to my account so I had to return to paper statements. They sent 4 letters to me with an ineffective pin number. They did not get my service fully operational for 7 months, trying to tell me I had to pay more to acquire the equipment to make that happen even though they knew what I had all along as they had been my provider for years. I have no confidence that we will ever see reasonable rates without competition, and in fact, cost increases post merger will move beyond what many people can/should be able to afford. This merger presents a huge risk to the informational literacy of as many Americans as possible. of

John from Paso Robles, CA
What ever happened to free market competition? It seems as if government, not to mention "our" representatives on Capitol Hill have willfully disregarded antitrust act and are allowing these mega mergers to take place in total violation or the law.needless to say, these mergers REDUCE competition and enable monopoly and subsequent price gouging to consumers- that our representatives are supposed to safeguard us against. This Comcast/ time warner is bad for the consumer, but will be great for comcastwhis track record is deplorable. Please uphold antitrust for once and vote for- not against- the people u were put in office to represent.

Another to big to fail company?
Ivan from Montgomery, AL
Stop Comcast, Time Warner merge.
Donna from Greenfield, IL
Stop this merger. Comcast is not for the consumers, they are for the money and control. Their costs are too high and consumers would have no voice if this merger goes through. Stop this merger!
Angela from McDonough, GA
Stop this monopolies, Comcast is a very greedy company that must be stopped!
Yunior from Miami, FL
Profit over consumer fairness already out of control monopoly. Please don't allow this merger it's bad for consumer choice and competition.
Leanne from Stockton, CA
Please don't allow Comcast to buy Time Warner Cable. If you believe in a free market economy, don't allow this monopoly to happen.
Thalia from Fort Lauderdale, FL
let there be choice, don't allow this awful deal to succeed
Matthew from San Francisco, CA
If Comcast gets control of the internet then they WILL be big enough to DEMAND help if they get into trouble.
Donald from Portland, OR
Stop the merger before it is too late!
Sherry from memphis, TN
Two of the lowest customer rated companies have monopolized zones of the country already using the equivalent of gerymandering to stay out of eachother's way. We don't need an official monopoly. In fact we need to stop this collusion and offer more competition.
Evan from Appleton, WI
This merger is disasterous and bad for consumers and business.
Emma from Seattle, WA
Please, Stop this merger, Thank you.
Caroline B. from St. Petersburg, FL
This would be a monopoly. Bad for business, bad for America.
Joseph from Colonia, NJ
just let the internet sanity be preserved..... let the internet be as common as it is...
Radhai from New Berlin, WI
This is a horrible idea, larger and larger corperations are already ruining lives to increase profits.
Mark from La Porte, TX
Stop this obscene merger once and for all. We do not need any more monopolies. We have too many as it is. Do not allow this to happen--again.
Terrie from Vidor, TX
Having one cable/internet company control as much of the market as the combined Comcast/Time Warner Cable company will control can't possibly be good for consumers, especially given Comcast's well-publicized horrible customer service and abuse of customers. Please *do not* allow this merger to take place!
Mason from Allen, TX
Stop the merger! Choices get more limited; prices get higher.
Chari from Naperville, IL
America used to be a democracy, but NOW it's a CORPOCRACY (corporate)

Gloria from Lakewood, CO
stop the merger of Comcast and Time Warner cable
Kathleen from Louisville, KY
I only have one option for high speed, its Comcast, and they suck. Please encourage competition in the market, don't allow these companies to merge.
Adam from Alexandria, VA
I already cannot afford my $130+ cable/internet bill as it is and there are NO other options for me to get cable/internet anywhere else. Taking away consumers right to have options is not fair. Cable is expensive enough and taking away the ONLY other option we as consumers have, is just going to cause an increase in prices that are already too expensive. Please do not let this happen!
Brandi from Lowell, MA
say no to this merger!
Elliott from Paso Robles, CA
This merber would be very bad for consumers.
John from Ann Arbor, MI
It would be bad news for everyone
Kaiisha from Sunnyvale, CA
Having reviewed information on the proposed merger I don't see how this can possibly benefit the public. Reducing competition, when many consumers already have only one choice, can only lead to higher prices and lower quality service (which is already considered poor by many).
Stephen from West Shokan, NY
Please stop the merger. Monopoly is not good for us.
Cathy from Sacramento, CA
Please enforce anti-trust legislation to its letter and spirit. We do not need and are not served by such mergers, so please do not allow Comcast and Time Warner to merge!

Please stop this merger. A monopoly is not in the best interest of the consumers.
Curt from Romeoville, IL
why not just give comcast all it wants and screw the consumer
Constance from Seattle, WA
Allowing one company to control this much of our media is dangerous and not in the best interest of the American public.
David from South Plainfield, NJ
Please do not allow this merger
David from Melbourne, FL
America is based on capitalism, which includes healthy competition. Allowing one company to control this much of our media is detrimental to our freedom to choose services, and our access to information/media in general. Monopolies go against capitalism. Please stop this merger.
Helen from Blacksburg, VA
leave the internet alone please!!!
Jessica from HAMMOND, IN
Please stop merger! No monopoly
Christina from Westminster, CA
The cable industry is already becoming monopolized. Stop this merger! Consumers should have options, and competition is necessary for affordable rates. The middle class is burdened enough already
Anastasia from Fenton, MI
No Comcast takeover, it is against the publics best interest
Jordan from los angeles, CA
This merger will hurt the American people. Please deny this merger.
Alexandra from Houston, TX
PLEASE STOP THIS CRIMINAL MERGER
Andrew from Brownsburg, IN
PLEASE STOP THIS CRIMINAL MERGER
Christopher from Saint Petersburg, FL
I have but one reason to say no to a Comcast/TWC union: How would the average American feel about -one- company controlling everything? This is one merger we don't need and can't use.
Philip from Saint James, NY
Stop the merger. This merger will only decrease competition.
James from College Station, TX
No more mega mergers. This is bad for competition and bad for consumers.
Kevin from West Glover, VT
Have you ever interacted with Comcast in any capacity? It's a nightmare. Please stop this merger.

Reject the merger of Comcast and Time Warner Cable. It will reduce competition and harm consumers.

NO TAKE OVER please please
Dennis from Mansfield, OH
Please give free Internet.take action
No mega-merger of Time Warner and Comcast.
Joseph from New York, NY
This merger is a very bad idea. It will help to squelch competition and consumer choice.
David from Penn Valley, CA
Stop the merger - it will be a disaster for already overburdened customers!!
Steven from New York, NY
Stop the merger. Competition and choice are good for the marketplace.
Robin from Spanaway, WA
It should be painfully obvious that when two media giants merge there will be less competion, less motivation to provide decent, affordable, and unrestricted service to the customer. Bigger companies and few choices is not better. Corporate history is rife with examples. Oppose Comcast -Time Warner merger.
Darren from Princeville, IL
This Comcast and Time Warner merger is NOT in the best interest of consumers. We need more, not less competition with internet service providers. Please do NOT allow this merger to proceed!
John from Moreno Valley, CA
These companies are already too big and their shares of the market crowd out new business and innovation. Of course, they don't want new business that may compete with them or new innovation that they don't own &/or control. keep the air waves open and the internet available to all. too large
Michael from Eugene, OR
The airwaves belong to the people.
LaVern from Livingston, WI
This is preventing competition,please stop this merger!
John from Vineyard Haven, MA
Stop the merger of the worst two customer service companies in the industry.
Nancy from KING, NC
Please do not allow this merger. Too Big. Too much in too few hands.
I am opposed to the Comcast/Time Warner merger. It will make the service even more expensive and less reliable.
The internet must be regulated as if it is a public utility so that it remains open to all and not subject to corporate whims.
We dont want a monopoly....we dont need a monopoly.STOP THE merger.
Please do not allow Comcast to buy Time Warner Cable. Don't allow monopolies in this country. Thank you.
Mary from East Lansing, MI
Under no circumstances do I want Comcast. My neighbor has them and hasn't been able to use her landline for YEARS--some "service."
Laura from San Jose, CA
The lack of competition is what is stagnating the telecom industry force TWC and Comcast to compete not be one company!!
Paul from Portland, OR
Not to take anythink about me.
James from Ames, IA
Stop the merger...we need many more companies offering communication services. Lets move forward rather than backwards. Lets get more choices, not less~
Barbara from Charleston, SC
I'm opposed to the Comcast merger with Time Warner Cable. I've not heard or seen anything positive about Comcast and I've heard or seen many complaints, some quite serious,bout them. On the other hand, Time Warner Cable has over the past few months greatly improved their cable service and their customer service, all without needing any assistance from Comcast. Merging with Comcast would likely result in Time Warner's service getting worse.
Leverett from Raleigh, NC
Please stop this merger. Our country cannot survive as a democracy with any more giant monopolies.
Johanna from Galesburg, IL
no merger comcast time warner
Nando from Seattle, WA
I am opposed to the Comcast/Time Warner merger. It will make the service even more expensive and less reliable.
Jonathan from Bklyn, NY
Request you to please consider how the Internet is changing lives by making education and awareness reach the remotest corners of the world and making it a truly one world before considering giving it in the hands of few greedy Profit driven companies who do not care about the result of their actions. If they be granted this then even the Power producing companies should follow soon.
To big to be competitive is not the solution.
William from Silver lake, OH
Stop the merger. This isn't what we the people want to see. We don't need a big hand in decisions that will not give us all equal representation to the rights of us as customers!
Patrick from Glendale, AZ
Please stop the merger. Comcast is bad enough without ruining every other company.
Amanda from Albuquerque, NM
Stop the merger: no more monopolies.
Sandra from San Antonio, TX
denies competition and comcast very bad when it deals with public/consumers. Better to have two or more cable companies.
David from Waterloo, NY
stop the comcast time-warner merger
Mitch from Berkeley, CA
This is the worst thing that could happen to broadband and cable competition: a bigger monopoly composed by Comcast and Time Warner. On the contrary, there should be more companies competing.
Edgar from San, CA
It's not fair to continue this
Syene from Trenton, NC
Please do not approve the merger.
Nishant from Austin, TX
Please stop the Comcast merger.
Freda from Dallas, TX
We need more competition in the market, not a conglomerate whose goal is anti fair market.
James from Portland, OR
This will compromise ay competition that still exists.
Judith from Deer Isle, ME
stop a monopoly. Don't allow the two biggest cable companies to merge.
Joyce from Oshkosh, WI
Comcast should not have this much power. There is no need to protect this company. It is possible for there to be competition. Comcast practices rate gauging, terrible customer service, and unreliable service. We just got internet competition in Seattle, and my rate for the same service went from $89 to $38. This is outrageous! They have been unresponsive and have made me feel like a dollar sign. They should not be allowed ot grow more powerful. What happened to anti-trust? What happened to standing up for consumers? There needs to be competetion in the market. The expensive infrastructure argument is ridiculous! We deserve better. Corporations are taking over our country. I won't stand by and watch this happen!
Carrie from Seattle, WA
I would like to support diversity in providing service and more flexibility that true capitalism provides with competition and multiple providers on market. please do not support the merger.
Oleksandr from Chuckey, TN
Public comment on this proposed merger should be carefully considered and strongly weighed. For anyone familiar with either Comcast or Time Warner's business practices and consumer service, the obvious answer is that the proposed merger should not be approved. Intentionally mis-charging, over-charging, intentionally obscuring fees, and forcing consumers to go to great lengths to "prove" that the fees and charges are not lawfuly owed is not beneficial for consumers. Permitting power to amass into a single large telecommunicaitons giant will only embolden such practices to the detriment of consumers and the public.
Griffin from Miami, FL
This merger does not make sense and is only going to make matter worse for everybody.
Lynna from Davis, CA
No way Don't let this happen
L from Lutz, FL
The only reason in the recent past to have mergers is to increase profits by eliminating competition. Why is anyone elected to represent us allowing this grand theft to occur?
Jonathan from Essex, CT
Comcast and Time Warner Cable are the two most hated companies in america. if they are successful millions of cable user will be force to deal with the world worst, lying, cheating, conniving, greedy monstrosity!

Giving companies even more control over our internet isn't just bad, it's unfair to us. I couldn't mean this more; stop the merger.
Jenna from Piney Point, MD
Time-Warner & Comcast are too big(just alone) and than to merge into one mega-company!
Luke from Salem, OR
Another merger like this again eliminates competition and lower prices and service for customers. It must be stoped.
Sharon from EVANSVILLE, IN
NO!! We cannot allow companies to continue to monopolize and take away choices/competition. Being minimized to one option has never been good for this country. STOP THIS MERGER..

Nancy from Palm Desert, CA
Please stop the merging of these two companies
Aviva from San Diego, CA
Don't allow the merger of Comcast and Time Warner Cable. This will reduce competition and cripple "freedom" of the Internet.
Sherman from Chesapeake, VA
I don't trust it. Monopolies were broken in the past for a *reason*. I believe the only thing Comcast is interested in is expanding their profits at the expense of all customers and services.
Kathryn from Clinton, MS
We need more diversity in the cable market, not less. Cancel this merger.
Amy from Lexington, KY

IF comcast or Time Warner take control of both internet providers, they then WILL for ALL intence and purposes CONTROL the internet after the government says they can control it.

Please keep the internet free and do not allow Comcast to change this.

Merger? It's already a monopoly!
Paul from Turner, ME
too much of a monopoly now. they have no competition
Geraldine from Fairhaven, MA
We don't need any more monopolies. Stop this merger now.
Eugenia from Poulsbo, WA
This merger would only hurt the consumer and provide no incentive for them to improve the quality of service. It would make an almost monopoly in many areas of the country. Say no to this merger.
Shanon from Williamsburg, VA
Comcast has NO SENSE of customer service. I made 4 appointments for cable service. They did not show or call to cancel. They have a monopoly in this area. Becoming a biggest company will only mean WORSE customer service. STOP THIS MERGER!!!
Brian from Jacksonville, FL
this merger would be bad for competition
Allan from Muskego, WI
Too-large corporations damage the public interest. In fact, our airwaves are owned by the public, and the fact that this public space is utilized to enrich Comcast, already a huge corporation is already unjust. To increase the size of Comcast reduces competition and creates too much power in the hands of one concern. Please reject this merger so contrary to the public interest.
Phyllis from Berkeley, CA
the internet is not a business its a lifestyle so keep it free to everyone so comcast stop this
Spencer from Washougal, WA
I have no other cable company option except Comcast. Satellite is here but although Cox Cable covers a large part of if not the entire state in competition with Comcast it is not in my area. And I have no idea why. Just recently 2 english channels were dropped and 2 Latino ones put in their place. I had no say in this. Atn this moment I am missing 2 english channels that are included but the signal isn't there while other channels come in. If these 2 companies merge there will be a monopolistic juggernaut serving 60-70% of the cable customers in the country. That will put too much power in the hands of too few. I urge you to reject this merger on the grounds that it is unhealthy economics.
Rudolph from Chester, CT
I thought monopolies were against the law. Comcast is a profit driven co. with little or no customer service. It need to be stopped.
Christine from New York, NY
stop the merger now! We do not need more large corporations making decisions for US THE PEOPLE. We need LESS!
David from st pete beach, FL
Stop the merger, too much power in too few hands makes for bad business and bad economics in general, and especially in internet control. I am for Net Neutrality.
Laine from Portland, OR
I already get horrible service from Comcast and they have no competition in my area. Don't reward them and give them an even bigger monopoly.

There should be no monopolies in the US of any kind.

Comcast is already horrible for consumers and effectively prevents comeptition in their markets. Don't let them extend that awfulness even further!
Christina from Mission Viejo, CA
Please do not allow the merger of Comcast and Time Warner Cable to go through. There has already been far too much media consolidation as it is. Thank you for your attention.

Meaghan from Eureka, CA
Do stop the merger as summarized by FCC!! they treat customers & minority employees real bad
mike from Philadelphia, PA
I despise Comcast, and feel like there already isn't enough choice in internet service providers, the last thing we need is to give them more market share.
Chris from Vancouver, WA
the corporate monopolies need to stop. our country is losing the ability to choose. please don't ever allow this kind of corporate blending to happen.
Georgina from Woodland Hills, CA
Please don't let this merger happen--monopolies aren't SUPPOSED to happen any more, by law. It's up to you to keep it from happening!
Lacey from Saint Marys, GA
It creates too much of a monopoly in our already too oligarchic economy.
Sara from Kirkland, WA
Comcast has enough power and we don't need a monopoly. Our internet service in the U.S. needs more choices, not less. We have one of the worst internet systems in the world and one of the most expensive for what we get. It's way past time for someone to get involved in reigning in these providers.
Kris from Lancaster, PA
I would like more more competition in this industry, not less.
Jay from philadelphia, PA
Please do not allow this to go through. This merger will only decrease consumer choices. We need to stop creating more 'too-big-to-fail' organizations.
Drew from Mechanicsburg, PA
Do not allow the Comcast Timewarner merge! It will be detrimental to all those who are already struggling to afford cable. It may push them to stop purchasing cable altogether and implement alternative routes of attaining entertainment and information.
Isabel from Hamden, CT
I started working in the cable industry right after college in 1979. Then it was a lot of small and medium sized cable companies competing for franchises. We promised the moon to get the licenses. Local offices, well equipped public access studios, 80 channels of diverse programming. In the last 30 years, due to media consolidation, we have lost public access. Customer service is not local, it is outsourced to countries where wages are cheap. And the programming is certainly not diverse. There are hundreds of channels that all look alike. Monopolization is never good for either workers or consumers, because they have less choice. Please don't allow the largest and the second largest cable companies, especially ones with as many customer complaints as these two have to merge. No one company should have that much control of a market.
Lauren from Beverly Hills, CA
Monopolies are not good for democracy.
Maria from San Francisco, CA
COMCAST Customer (DIS)service can'tt handle its present load. Don't make it worse by adding Time Warner to it and reducing staff to turn a greater profit for those who don't deserve it.
Darrel from Westminster, MA
Please stop the Comcast - Time Warner Merger. You are the Federal agency responsible for protecting the public from media providers who provide poor service and high prices. Do your duty. Do not approve the Comcast - Time Warner merger.
Herbert from San Francisco, CA
Stop monopoly control of cable and internet. Congress should grow a spine and have a massive brain transplant and start regulating and or dismantling all monopolies!!!!!!!
Michael from Woodside, CA
I have been a TWC customer for many years of heartache and incredibly substandard service. I average at least three hours a week on the phone regarding a technical problem or waiting for technicians to arrive. This last incident took two months and 5 technicians to "fix" (not to mention all the trauma I suffered), and my internet service still doesn't work right, but TWC doesn't care. It feels once it has a customer, choices in this market are so poor it can give pitiful service and the customer has nowhere to go. I understand Comcast is equally as bad. Merging two behemoth companies who give terrible service will only make the matter worse and still harder to fix. My solution would be to break them both up into smaller companies who actually care about their clients and can address their problems!
Sharon from Austin, TX
We have had both
Ted from Kapaau, HI
When Time Warner took over our cable company, the service got much worse and the cost got higher. We also lost our ability to choose a service that worked well for us. My folks lived in Florida in a condo and they were forced to use Comcast when they took over their local cable provider. The service fron
Jo from Kapaau, HI
Please don't allow this merger to happen! It is not the right thing to do for anybody. To keep raising prices on such a horrible service, just doesn'y make any since. Comcast has no respect for their customers, what so all!
Fawnda from Pittsburgh, PA
The takeover of the Internet by Comcast would benefit no one but Comcast.
Jack from Iowa City, IA
There's a reason Comcast is one of the most hated companies in America. We need more competition, not less. Allowing ComCast to buy out Time Warner would lead to a defacto monopoly in many areas
Moses from Waltham, MA
I am strongly against this merger, as less companies means less competition. Both of these companies are infamously known for their poor customer service, and awful business tactics. Do not allow this merger.
Antonio from Miami, FL
Stop the Comcast merger. Big Media is already virtually a monopoly on social messaging to the masses. Do not increase this reach and control of messaging into the hands of even fewer individuals/corporations.
Holly from Chicago, IL
Stop this takeover to keep competition alive and prices competitive.
Patricia from Ballwin, MO
We know the damage monopolies do. Do not allow this merger to happpen!
Alyce from Burlington, CO
This merger is not good for customers.
Ron from Appleton, WI
Keep competition alive and well.
Maryann from Spotsylvania, VA
this would be a mistake
Deborah from Kansas City, MO
Comcast has routinely shown disdain for their customers. Their anticompetitive behavior hurts consumers, and as such Comcast should not be allowed to expand into content production and other media business.
William from Denver, CO
Our media choices will become even more limited.
Vikki from Providence, RI
These companies are bad enough operating separately. Putting them together would be a consumer's worst nightmare!
Robert from Shaker Heights, OH
Comcast does not care about quality customer service and has attempted to defraud some that I know of personally.
Philip from South San Francisco, CA
In other countries, prices are fair and there are many options to find a service provider that fits with your interests and budget, because there are tens of small companies all competing for your money. This leads to a better experience for the subscriber and a more innovative, dynamic market. If Time Warner and Comcast merge, the US will become a wasteland of stagnant choice and consumers will have no real choice in service providers; because combined Time Warner-Comcast reach over 60% of all consumers. This would be a genuinely dystopian outcome for this country, and any politician that doesn't vocally oppose the merger can wave goodbye to being reelected. This is the opposite of what the country needs.
Brandy from Fayetteville, WV
It makes me feel like I AM BEING TAKEN OVER ALSO.
Jane from Cedarville, OH
Stop permitting more "too big to fail" monopolies. Enough! They are detrimental to freedom and to this country - we should all understand that, by now.

Debbie from Mount Morris, MI
Oppose monopolies, say no to the Comcast - Time Warner Cable merger.
Donna from Seattle, WA
there is no escaping comcast. Allowing them to take over warner cable leaves the people no options. Comcast didnt hold up their end of the contract with me and for some reason i owe them money.
Sarah from Seattle, WA
I was a Comcast subscriber for years due to the monopoly they enjoy in New Mexico. They are the absolute worst to do business with. I was so glad to have other options when I moved out of state and, should Comcast buy outTWC, I will absolutely take my business elsewhere.
Brian from Beavercreek, OH
The proposed takeover of Time Warner Cable by Comcast is bad for all consumers. Comcast's rates are high, customer service is poor at best and they are opposed to NetNeutrality. It will decrease competition in the marketplace which is one of the mainstays of capitalism. Please stop the takeover.
Karen from Fairfax, CA
Do not allow this merger to go through!
Timothy from Centennial, CO
Creating an even larger media will do nothing for consumer choice, increase competition, or reduce prices. It will increase Comcast's power and profits and harm the media. Approving this merger will prioritize profits over people.
James from Lake Stevens, WA
Please stop the merger, whih would benefit only corporate greed and would harm customers
w from staatsburg, NY
No merger! I've had it with big companies getting bigger and at the expense of the little guy, which I happen to be. we need competition. as the FCC, you should be looking at DISMANTLING comcast and time Warner like you dismantled the phone company...take a stand for the little guy!
Jennifer from Cape coral, FL
The internet should be a public entity available to and regulated by citizens. The idea of any company, organization, or conglomerate having control, buying, or restricting the internet is a major issue as it is one of the main sources of information, commerce, and community awareness. A corporation or business owning something so vital to government, industry, and society is ludicrous and risky — especially a business with the reputation of Comcast. I do not know one person who has dealt with them and has something positive to say. From being charged months after canceling service to being charged for a service unavailable in the customer's area. I have personally reported a service continuously not working and had Comcast just dismiss the issue (i.e. take money and state that the service should be working). For this same organization — or any other for that matter — to own, control, or have power over the internet, the last source of free enterprise and information exchange is a conflict of interest. This would serve as a deadly blow to the freedoms that citizens obtain, experience, and develop via the internet.
Keondra from Baltimore, MD
We need to stop mega-mergers that will hurt the American people.
Sara from Coloma, CA
Why don't we have one big giant "entertainment" company with the president as the CEO and Congress as the board of directors!? That would finish killing the American way of life once and for all and everyone could be rich and happy!
Chris from Smyrna, DE
No, No, No to the Comcast-Time Warner merger. Comcast is a bully; cannot be trusted - they lie about pricing, play with billing, change programming and are needing to be downsized not have more power. They are NOT a responsible customer-serving company.
Emily from portland, OR
Fairness doctrine! No one enity should corner media in any way! Propaganda has already done enough damage with the access it has been given.

Ralph from Duluth, MN
Comcast merger is not only Antitrust and a monopoly but they outsource a large amount of jobs to 3rd world countries, this will have a major negative impact on not only cable consumers but the entire economy. I worked for Comcast and they abuse and herass their employees, no wonder their Customer Service is so bad!
Sherry from Hayward, CA
Too much power concentrated in the hands of one company is a bad thing in any business but particularly in the communications business. No to the merger.

Antitrust Law FOR A REASON! Comcast is the devil and I already have no other internet option in my neighborhood and I am forced to use Comcast and their service is the worst I have ever experienced as a consumer and their connection is terrible as well, PLEASE don't let them line your greedy pockets and do your job to stop this!
Tiffany from Hayward, CA
Please break up Comcast et al into internet delivery and content production companies.
Clay from Lafayette, CO
This merger is clearly not in the best interests of the public. These companies provide overpriced "services" which ued to be free or low priced. Percentages of advertising continue to rise with no benefit to consumers. We need more choice, not less.

Carrie from Roswell, GA
Comcast is a monopoly. They keep raising the prices. We have no choices and they also leverage their ISP monopoly to kill other Internet based businesses. NO NO NO more power to Comcast.
Ash from Why, PA
Stop this merger! It violates anti-monopoly rules and would restrict free speech.
Juliette from Albuquerque, NM

No to the Comcast Take Over. This would be a tragic move. Comcast is the pits.
Damaur from District of Columbia, DC
Please stop this merger! We need more competition, not less.
Damon from Melbourne Beach, FL
Media ownership concentration is too great now. It's vital to dissallow these types of mega-mergers of big conglomerates, especially when it comes to companies that create media content, because concentrated ownership stymies the propagation of diverse voices and opinions.
Robert from Greenwich, CT
Any company that gets hold of a majority og a product of any size WILL SET the price of that product and control the output and distrabution ofTHAT product.
Donald from Portland, OR
We've complained about the customer service for TWC and Comcast for years. Combining the companies is to hold customers hostage to rising rates and perpetually bad service. It also goes against the free competition that has made our country great.
Judy from Durham, NC 27707, NC
Stop this merger and help preserve an open internet.
Jean from Stehekin, WA
The merger would allow corporations greater control over political candidates' exposure. It's not just about the internet.
Adam from Rochester, NY
Stop this merger now Thanks
Scott from Aliso Viejo, CA
This merger would hurt consumers.
Thornton from Somerset, NJ
Comcast is already appallingly abusive in areas like mine where they have a virtual monopoly. The merger would be a huge mistake for customers.
Daniel from Belleville, MI
A monopoly? Sounds more like a dictatorship. TimeWarner already holds me hostage.
Glenn from Middletown, NY
Monopolies will be the death of our Democracy.
Andy from Merrillville, IN
This monopoly is illegal & inappropriate to this industry.
Marcia from New York, NY
This is ridiculous and would affect millions.
C. from Mechanicsville, VA
corporations are not people. We the people are people. OUR VOTES SHOULD MATTER.
Dana from Stuart, FL
Block the merger between Comcast and Time-Warner. This would NOT benefit the public consumer, only top shareholders and executives. Choices are already too slim for consumers in this market. Personally, I am only able to subscribe to Comcast, as they are the only Provider in my zip code. This is unfair, considering I live in the 3rd largest metro area of The U.S.
Antwon from Chicago, IL
For a company to gain total control of ANY PART of the internet would be like having ONLY ONE road of traffic on te public highways. It could be a million lanes but ONLY ONE source of information - THEIRS! ! !
Donald from Fairview, OR
Stop the Comcast merger now!
Deirdre from Bronxville, NY
No to the cable merger. We need as consumers more choices. It's the American way. Support the people not big business.
Nancy from Lewes, DE
NO to a Comcast merger!!
Phyllis from Chapel Hill, NC
I'm an onsite computer tech and the current options for high speed choice in Florida is down to two companies. AT&T and comcast. Both are just awful to deal with, which is depressing since I have to spend hours a month talking to their awful customer service resolving their shoddy installation. Less is not more, combining Time Warner and Comcast into one company is a bad idea. Frankly you should be doing the opposite and breaking these already monopolized companies up.
Glen from Lake worth, FL
I have had to deal with Comcast for too many years. They have one goal to make themselves richer with no regards for their customers . We need competition and equality on the Internet with no fees for faster speeds .
Wayne from ewing, NJ
Where is the Freedom of selection if we have this merger?!
John from Farmingdale, NY
Without the Internet being free we as humans will not progress. We're watching you, and we are not fooled.....
Hakeem from Los Angeles, CA
what happened to anti-monopoly laws for corporations? I recall a bunch of voters thinking corporate monopolies was a bad thing and now there is someone who is sticking their neck out for a sweet payoff for the mere attempt to forget what the voters decided.
Jeremy from Tallahassee, FL
Take action now to stop Congress from undoing everything we've accomplished.
Stop this merger. Monopolies are bad for competition.

Comcast is a lousy corporation. Becoming a larger one will just make them lousier.
Cox from Shelby Township, MI
Can you say monoply? This merger is bad for everyone but the 2 bad service companies!
Phil from woodland hills, CA
We (the consumer) have seen it time after time: every time these gigantic companies merge, the consumer is always "on the short end of the stick". No more corporate consolidation!
Randall from Berkeley, CA
Stop the comcast deal for good
Steve from Washington, DC
We deserve better than this monopoly.
Robert from Oxford, MS

Sammantha from Denver, CO
Please stop the merger, monopolies are bad for everyone.
Paul from Seattle, WA
The genius of mass media available to the American public is the variety provided by the many different companies that comprise it. The massive merger of Comcast and Time Warner will combine too many voices under one heavy-handed gigantic fist depriving the public of the many unique voices that are the source of American pre-eminence on the planet. Yes, public service broadcasting is that important and never forget it!
Reuben from Jamestown, ND
Please stop the Comcast - Time Warner Merger ..

Gerald from Lapeer, MI
Enough of the "too big to fail" companies.
Melanie from Margate, FL
It's part of a "Free" America, Really.
Kirk from yelm, WA
This is nothing but a bold-faced attempt at a monopoly that will only benefit them in the profits department and result in higher prices for all their customers.
Martin from san juan, TX
More competition and less consolidation
David from Pittsburgh, PA
Please don't allow this monopoly to be formed. Keep speech free!
Heather from Fountain Valley, CA

Eva from Del Mar, CA
Stop the merger of the unaccountable Comcast/Time-Warner corporations; as a monopoly, we could only expect huge costs for low-quality service?
Sigrid from Seattle, WA
Creating a monopoly never serves the interest of the consumer.
Ellen from Dover, DE
Stop the merger. We can't let one company monopolize the internet.
