Comcast wants to take total control over our Internet, and then kill it. Now we have to fight back before it’s too late.
The cable giant is pushing to buy out its key competitor, Time Warner, in a monster merger that would hand Comcast an unprecedented monopoly across the country. If Comcast wins, we can expect higher bills and a slower Internet for everyone -- except for Comcast’s corporate buddies willing to pay for fast access.
Rejecting this merger should be a no brainer. But the man meant to hold Comcast to account at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) -- Tom Wheeler -- is a former Big Cable lobbyist. He’s under growing pressure, but more of us need to speak up to get him to do what’s right.
We need to weigh in now, before official public comments on this corporate merger close. If hundreds of thousands of us speak up now, we can hold Wheeler to account, and force him to consider the overwhelming public opposition to this Comcast Internet takeover.
