Today Public Knowledge announced Recast Comcast, a contest to remix the slew of recordings of poor Comcast customer service that have been appearing on the internet this summer.
This contest challenges everyone to remix these various recordings into something amazing, and hopes to create something positive out out many hours spent on Comcast customer service calls. As the grand prize, Public Knowledge will pay the winner’s last Comcast bill.
Yesterday, Public Knowledge and the Open Technology Institute joined many other organizations in filing our formal Petition to Deny with the FCC, asking it to stop the merger between Comcast and Time Warner Cable.
A new video showcases the harms from a merged Comcast and Time Warner Cable. Control of almost half of all high speed Internet customers, the ability to dictate terms to anyone who wants to connect with it, and poorer customer service are just the tip of the iceberg.
Tomorrow, Public Knowledge President and CEO, Gene Kimmelman, will testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee in the hearing titled, "Examining the Comcast-Time Warner Cable Merger and the Impact on Consumers."
