Re: How exactly?

Your math is inaccurate. As a basic example, take a municipality that has AT&T and Charter as the comfortable duopoly. Then, let Charter be acquired by Cox. Now the comfortable duopoly in that municipality is AT&T and Cox. How did the competitive landscape in the municipality change by an MSO being acquired by another?

AT&T leaves the market because they don't want to upgrade DSL.

Charter merges with Cox and Time Warner Cable, creating a national geographical monopoly, no longer feebly checked by a telco competitor that's so powerful, it enjoys regulator capture and elbowing out any future competitors.

The result is....

...not more competition...

but.....
