  • FCC might give Netflix what it wants and still allow Comcast to sell fast lanes [The Verge]: “A hybrid proposal said to be gaining support would divide internet regulation into commercial and retail.”
  • Comcast trademarks “True Gig” and plans multi-gigabit Internet service [Ars Technica]: “Comcast is also using True Gig to describe online video streaming, specifically ‘provision of non-downloadable films, movies, and television programs via an online video-on-demand service; providing entertainment information via television, cable, telephone, wireless broadband, fiber broadband, and via the Internet.'”
  • Comcast and AT&T Deals Put on Track for February Decision [Bloomberg]: “Comcast’s review has 95 days to run under the FCC’s non-binding ‘clock,’ and AT&T’s has 104 days left. The FCC stopped Comcast’s clock Oct. 3, saying it needed more information from the company. The agency suspended reviews in both deals Oct. 22 to allow time to resolve disputes over who can see television programming contracts.”
  • Comcast offers new place to return equipment [Philadelphia Business Journal]: “The Philadelphia media giant and UPS have partnered to allow Comcast’s customers to bring used equipment to the nearest UPS Store location, where it will be shipped back to Comcast — for free.”
  • Greatland Connections Inc. would arise from Comcast-TWC merger [Philadelphia Inquirer]: “Greatland Connections Inc., the publicly traded company that would inherit 2.5 million cable-TV subscribers disgorged by Comcast Corp., is seeking to trade on the NASDAQ exchange under the ticker ‘GLCI.’ Comcast shareholders would own 67 percent of Greatland.”
  • PhillyDeals: 2 cable wiring companies sue Comcast [Philadelphia Inquirer]: “Cable Line Inc. and McLaughlin Communications Inc. accuse Comcast Cable Communications of Pennsylvania Inc. of enticing them and other local operators to hire and train workers, add offices, borrow money for trucks and equipment – ‘only to abandon those firms once they had been induced to create the infrastructure necessary for Comcast’s expansion,’ according to the lawsuit. The work was given to the larger firms Comcast favored ‘in order to monopolize the market,’ it contends.”
