Say No to the Time Warner-Comcast Merger!

This petition had 56,792 supporters

We need more competition in the cable and Internet marketplace, not less, and a mega-merger of Comcast and Time Warner will result in a Comcast conglomerate that will dominate cable and broadband in our nation -- leading to higher prices, fewer program choices and even worse customer service.

If the FCC allows this merger to go through, Comcast will:

* Control two-thirds of the nation's cable subscribers, five times the subscriber base of any other cable company and 50 percent more than the largest satellite TV service. 

* Control nearly 40 percent of the U.S. broadband market. 

* Have enormous gatekeeper power over the content that reaches consumers

* Give the company even more power to raise rates for its competitors, passing those price hikes on to customers.

* Combine two companies that already rank near the bottom of Consumer Reports annual consumer satisfaction survey of 80,000 readers. 

Please reject the Comcast/Time Warner Cable merger, and give American consumers a break.
