Comcast is raising rates as you can see from this article. More interesting is this quote from the article:
"One conclusion that is easy to reach is that this market is in desperate need of competition," FCC Commissioner Jonathan Adelstein said at the time.
Looking at the telecom industry many think the FCC is in the pockets of the ILECs and is allowing consolidation at the expense of thousands of CLECs and other competitive players. I wonder if the FCC just has blinders on and is just looking to build the most powerful cable competitors possible.
