Dear FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler:

If the Charter-Time Warner Cable merger is approved, Charter and Comcast would offer service to nearly 80 percent of U.S. homes.

Together they would have unprecedented control over our ability to connect and communicate. Without any other meaningful competition, they'd be able to charge us whatever they want for our connections. Higher prices would leave even more people on the wrong side of the digital divide — hitting low-income communities of color the hardest.

Please use your power to stop this deal.

    Tell FCC Chairman Wheeler: Block the Charter-Time Warner Cable Merger

    FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler admitted that he "has not done enough" to encourage competition between cable giants.1

    We appreciate the chairman's sentiments — and have something he can do right now: Block the $90 billion merger between Charter and Time Warner Cable.

    In fact, Wheeler has all the power he needs to stop this deal, a move that would encourage competition rather than crush it.

    Take action now: Tell Chairman Wheeler to stop Charter and block this merger.
