So Comcast is whining about competition and cites it as a reason to widen their near monopoly to provide television content. Like other industries, they should buckle down and get competitive on price and service. I have TWC, and while they are bad enough, I fear this merger. It seems to me that their big fear is to lose the income from subscription TV because people are cutting the cable and keeping internet. Hence their bandwidth tier pricing. If the merger goes through, I expect to be paying much more for both TV and internet. I think their strategy is to choke out their "competitors" like Roku, Apple, etc. by the cost of bandwidth. Look at Netflix, who now pays them a ransom fee so their bandwidth won't be strangled.
