Comcast strikes deal to buy Time Warner Cable for $45 billion

I can't help but feel like this headline should read "... for $45 billion, plus Tax."

Imagine if the Federal Government got 5 to 7 percent of such an exchange? That would be 3 billion right there.

I take it for some reason I can't imagine the anti-trust laws won't apply.

Didn't I read one time that they were owned by the Mormon Church or something? Comcast, I mean. I'm sure it was some kind of church.

Their argument is that since they don't cover the same service areas, that there is no lessening of competition. Of course the whole cable racket is generally a monopoly in most areas anyway.

I'm a little concerned. Now that people are streaming internet video instead of paying for cable TV, they might lower the data caps to a ridiculously small amount.

This seems like a bad thing. What makes Comcast think this is a good idea. Global domination?

Agreed. Their CS is terrible and their equipment is absolute garbage. Of course my friends who have Comcast tell me I haven't seen anything yet.
