There is so much that jumps out at me...
I can't believe that the FCC would approve this as a condition to the NBC merg........ oh wait. The FCC. Ok, totally makes sense.
I can certainly understand not qualifying for the service if you owe Comcast money. I would not choose to do business again with someone who stuck me with bad debt and did not pay it off.
But, having to qualify for the school lunch program and not having any Comcast service as a condition? What if you don't have any children in the public school system? Is there an equivalent metric for qualification for the elderly and otherwise childless? And, while it's not advertised, you can usually get basic cable with around 20 channels for $10-15/month. What is the logic there? If you can afford $15 a month for TV, you can afford $50 for their basic internet plan?
The premise made that this condition is essentially unobtainable certainly seems logical. This gives me very little hope towards the AT&T-mobile merger currently making its way through anti-trust procedures.
