Comcast heads to trial for anti-trust violations

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

The courts will decide whether Comcast bought off its potential competitors or not, but it's certain that Americans pay a lot more and get a lot less for internet services than other industrialized countries. How could this be possible in the supposedly free-market, unregulated US system?

As I've mentioned before, even in "socialist France" there are so many more choices, with higher speed (fiber optic) options for less money. It's also standard to include phone calls around the world at no additional fees and TV channels all for a bundle price that is about the same price as US internet rates.

Consumer choices for high speed internet are lacking for American consumers and that needs to change. Until the political class is forced to break the grip of companies like Comcast (and their heavy financial influence) this will never happen.
