CCIA opposes Comcast-TWC merger
The Comcast-Time Warner Cable merger has been opposed by the Computer and Communications Industry Association (CCIA) which has expressed concerns that the merger will potentially reduce competition and will reduce the chances of competitive entry.
The CCIA's opposition of the Comcast-TWC merger was voiced in a letter which the association - including bigwig forms like Microsoft, Google, Facebook, Sprint, T-Mobile, eBay, Dish, and others - has recently written to Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.). The Senator, who had pressed the CCIA for its views on the merger, has published the letter.
With regard to its opposition of the Comcast-TWC merger, the CCIA said that the opposition underscores an "aggregate view" of its members. The association elaborated that individual companies generally do not voice their concerns in competition investigations because of fear of harming present or prospective business relationships.
Describing the Comcast-TWC merger as an anti-competitive move, CCIA said that the merger will potentially impede innovation which threatens to erode the legacy cable business model. The association asserted that a merged Comcast-TWC would get the ability to discriminate against online competitors to its traditional cable video model.
In its letter, the CCIA said: "CCIA is concerned that this merger poses a significant threat to innovation and competition in many parts of the marketplace, including the layer that most users are familiar with: the websites, platforms and online services that the vast majority of Americans use every day."
