Re: Pai
"And just how those decision makers and their representatives decide on what is cause for recusing themselves..."

Their solution to this has been easy: don't EVER recuse yourself, and ignore the obvious problems with revolving door regulation. It's utterly disgusting to people paying attention without a vested interest in the outcome.

Re: Pai
The possible conflicts of interests may interesting reading. And just how those decision makers and their representatives decide on what is cause for recusing themselves from lobbying or actively having a postion makes one wonder.

Re: Pai
He's also a former Verizon regulatory lawyer, so I believe that colors his thinking as well. He's a "free market supporter" that has defended the ISP right to pass state level protectionist laws that block local peoples' rights -- in turn -- to decide infrastructure decisions for themselves...

Easy
It might seem complicated, but I am sure that Mignon Clyburn will consider it and pick a good way to solve this. Trust me on this one!

Re: All this mess will do is. Shaft the public.
The thing is that the subscribers that will come from Bright House and TWC will have exactly zero change to their competitive landscape.

All this mess will do is. Shaft the public.
All this mess will do is shaft the public.

You can count on your bill going up a good 25%. You net speed droping. And your service going to hell.

And you really think Charter is going to go along with all the rules they have put on the train wreck. Ha!  Charter has a ton of loop holes in this deal. And wording as.. If this & if that. And if we can, and if we can not. And, And & more B.S.

Charter is not dumb. They know just what they are doing. And how they can shaft the public.

And who do you think is going to pay for the train wreck.. The public is. With a new high bill. Crap net service. And more.

Bend over & smile. The charter a$$ shaft is coming to your town soon.

Re: Pai
It looks like this is going to happen.

Will it be beneficial for customers? Hard to tell. It will allow Charter to better compete with larger rivals, but that doesn't necessarily benefit those using the service. We'll see.

Pai
Pai tends to be a very vocal free-market advocate, so this doesn't surprise me.  (Some have even suggested than in the case of a Republican White House win, Pai might be promoted to Commissioner.)
