Report: Comcast, Time Warner to meet with regulators about merger

Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON, April 19 (UPI) -- Representatives of Comcast and Time Warner Cable are reportedly set to meet with Justice officials for the first time this week, in an effort to hammer out details that will push through their proposed $45 billion merger.

It has been more than a year since the cable television subscription giants announced the plan to join forces. But the deal has yet to be approved and federal regulators are concerned the resulting company would wield too much power in the national Internet broadband market.

Regulators from the U.S. Department of Justice and Federal Communications Commission are nearing the final critical stages of evaluating the planned merger.

​The merger should not be allowed and I will tell you why. If a company cannot expand by the old fashioned way of providing a good product or service giving good customer service in order to gain customers then they should stay the size they are or die out. Buying out other company's in order to gain customers is BS because if those customers had wanted your service to begin with they already would be your customer before hand. See how bad TIME WARNER fucked up CNN when they bought that network from Ted Turner. Before Ted Turner sold his 24 hour news network to TIME WARNER it was the most trusted news source out there. Now look what CNN has fallen to. The bottom of the network news shit barrel.

These big corp mergers do not benefit customers and never has. Just takes away customer choice is all it does. That said it's not my company so nothing lawfully I can do but i can chose who I pay for services with. Luckily I do not live in the Comcast or TIME WARNER cable zone of business.
