10. Really an "end-to-end" merger

There is no competition between cable providers. You can't say that you will go with A or B because you can only get A or B where your home or business is located. Two cable companies merging does not eliminate competition and any new company cannot compete. Your choices for an ISP are cable TV line, phone line, or satellite. You cannot choose between cable systems even if there were fifty cable systems because only one of them has a line to your home.
