Comcast Calls FCC Decision To Ban Apartment Cable Deals "A Blow" To Consumers

The FCC approved a rule banning apartment building cable deals today, and Comcast is all mad about it.

Sena Fitzmaurice, Senior Director of Corporate Communications and Government Relations for Comcast said:

“Consumers in apartment buildings and condos across the nation received a blow today from the action taken by the FCC. The result of this decision is likely to be higher prices for services and years of litigation and uncertainty for consumers. The significant concessions building owners have been able to bargain for on behalf of their residents will be lost.”

We’ll translate this for you. What Sena really means is: “Holy Mother of God, everyone is going to switch to FiOS.”
