    After reading the article on the front page of AC from Andrew i was curious on everybody's feelings about this. I know they say the more competition is better for the consumer but I'll save my thoughts for some of these replies.

    Honestly I think I should have seen this coming but I'm still very anti against this.

    I honestly don't know how I feel about this. It could really go either way but it does sound interesting that the phones will go between Comcast wifi hotspots and cell signals.

    Anti against this? Does that mean your not against this? The whole double negative has me confused.

    Comcast tried doing this with sprint and it was called pivot. It tanked but I think that's because the prices were higher than if you were going to buy a sprint an alone with no comcast benefits.

    One term comes to mind when I hear this. Oligopoly.

    I think that we already have a Oligopoly. See the first line of the Description in the Wiki.

    Oligopoly is a common market form where a small number of firms are in competition. As a quantitative description of oligopoly, the four-firm concentration ratio is often utilized. This measure expresses the market share of the four largest firms in an industry as a percentage. For example, as of fourth quarter 2008, Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile together control 89% of the US cellular phone market.

    How does this stop without adding more firms to the mix?

    I agree but comcast will just add another name to it. It's not like they're some small company trying to change the way people do cellular.

    Comcast in relation is small. Your not going to see a truly small company make a dent. Republic Wireless is a good example. Comcast is just trying to do what RW is doing on a larger scale. This method can change how mobile wireless is dealt with ie stopping data from being the main source for cost increases.

    There is no way. Ever. I would never ever do this.

    Comcast forgets most people are with them because they don't have a better option.. That's it.

    In wireless there are plenty of options so... Their customer service wouldn't hold people.

    Ya...I'd say no thanks to Comcast. CS is just terrible for my standard ISP. They won't go any where I'm sure! And hey if they can turn around the CS issues then they might stand a chance! Guess time will tell but I'm not willing to beta test this. Let someone else! Even if it was cheaper.
