I don't see a problem with companies merging together. Just as long as it doesn't turn into some weird monopoly that charges through the roof for services. As long as that remains affordable its a good thing for buisnesses to combine powers with one another in my opinion. Its capitalism.
Comcast are vying to buy out Time-Warner, in a move which would see the media giant dominate some 40% of the US broadband market. Due to the bottom-line nature of big business, this would lead to higher prices for all, and a reduction in diverse opinion across all platforms owned by Comcast. The FCC need to pay ever closer attention to the deal.
Comcast and Time are both already big enough without joining forces, so this merger should not be allowed. When companies get too big, they develop a monopoly and often run smaller companies out of business, which often leaves consumers with no choice but to use their services. Competition is good for the market.
A monopoly is rarely a good thing. This merger would create a broadband internet market monopoly larger than anything we have ever seen. As a minimum, there should be a hearing to determine if it is a good idea or even if it is legal. They are both rich enough as it is.
