Public Knowledge Commends Verizon and Comcast For Filing Deal Details – Yet Questions Remain

The following statement is attributed to Harold Feld, legal director for Public Knowledge:

 

“We are pleased that Verizon and Comcast with its cable partners filed material today with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) explaining the details of their joint marketing and technical arrangements.

 

“This voluntary filing will eliminate a controversy that surely would have taken place had they not done so.

 

“At the same time, no one should accept the companies’ claim that the arrangement are outside of the FCC’s jurisdiction.  They clearly are.  We expect the Commission to evaluate these arrangements in the context of the spectrum deal to determine how the entire transaction will affect competition and the public interest.”
