(Washington, D.C.) The ability for carriers to compete for customers and provide the best possible service for their consumers is essential to the health and vibrancy of the American telecommunications marketplace. However, as more details become available about the pending deal between Verizon, Cox, and SpectrumCo (Comcast, Bright House, and Time Warner), competitive carriers and consumers are left asking -- is this deal in America's best interest?
Monday marks the formal launch of the Alliance for Broadband Competition, a collection of like-minded businesses, trade associations, and public interest groups who are concerned about the ability for the current marketplace to sustain a competitive broadband landscape. Representatives from T-Mobile, RCA-The Competitive Carriers Association, and Public Knowledge, will host a kick-off event via teleconference, on Monday, May 14, at 2pm EST. Following brief remarks, the line will be open for participants to engage in media Q&A.
