As Comcast gears up to prove its upcoming merger with Time Warner Cable doesnt violate anti-trust laws, the company is rolling out a surprising argument. Google Fiber might control as much as 2% of the broadband market by 2015 In a letter from Comcast executive VP David L. Cohen, the company made the case that the cable industry has gotten more competitive since similar FCC in the mid 00s on Adelphia, due to an insurgent threat by Google Fiber projects and web TV services like Hulu. In today’s market, with national telephone and satellite competitors growing substantially, the letter reads, with Google having launched its 1 GB Google Fiber offering in a number of markets across the country, and consumers having more choice of pay TV providers than ever before, Comcast believes that there can be no justification for denying the company the additional scale that will help it compete more effectively.
