Re: Karl, Why do you keep blaming ComCast.... He's not blaming comcast for verizon and ATT. The point is that most of the wireline market in the US is a duopoly with ATT/Verizon being one half (the telco half) of it. So the behavior of att and verizon, in showing every interest in abandoning wireline, must surely play a significant part in assessing the state of competition in this market.
Re: Karl, Why do you keep blaming ComCast.... Ok cohen is a spin doctor asshole, I agree on that, at least he's well suited to the job, even if overly transparent.
It's normal in this part of the economic cycle to see merger mania, money is still cheap enough to borrow that it covers the overpricing of the assets IF the marriage is successful. If not it's yet another investor lesson.

Look at these different packages from our single market competitor!!!!!!! Plus some we just simply added on for the hell of it at the bottom to make it look complex!!!!
SO MANY CHOICES

Re: Hey they're technically right
said by why60loss: If that's true, then we should be blaming Google for the lack of competition, right?
...But really google fiber is what kick started a lot of this stuff....
Google gets no more credit/blame than ComCast for the series of unrelated moves other then pointing out a new investment cycle has begun, and everyone starts grabbing for the candy that came out of the piñata (get all you can, see if it's worth eating later)
Oodles? That's funny... I'm in a TW service area and my options are:
$500 for 10/10 fiber
Where are these oodles they speak of?
No LTE isn't an option: I'm roaming to Canada from the US due to my home.
Not to mention that LTE is not a viable option for broadband anyway.
Re: Oodles? I have 8mbps from centurylink... thats it. Im in a TWC area and they refuse to provide us internet and yet no one else can come in. Hows that competition?
