Complete Video of NY Public Service Commission Meeting in Buffalo

My apologies for the poor audio. You will need to stay close to the volume control on this one because the volume may suddenly change between speakers. We had less than ideal recording conditions and no access to the microphone output. Testimony from Comcast begins 5:40 into the video. Our testimony starts at 36:30, which closely follows the transcript already published. Q&A follows me and then the public input session begins.

Note if you wish to receive a copy of this in higher resolution for rebroadcast on a public access channel or for other purposes, please use the Contact Us button and we’ll be able to provide a copy. File size will exceed 1GB, however. (1 hour, 35 minutes)

    My god that was painful. The only engaging speaker was Phillip, probably because he was not shoveling BS. I don’t think I’d have had the same restraint Phillip showed while listening to the comcast rep drone on with his non answer about whether comcast would increase prices for former tw cable customers after a takeover.

    • I will say I was frustrated about the q&a over cable rates because although the Comcast guy couldn’t answer, I had the rates for both companies in my pile of papers. They did not ask me.

      When the sock puppets were at it, I wanted to start counting dollar bills at the table. But I was able to alert those going to Albany and NYC of what I couldn’t answer so the speakers there could. Common Cause and Consumer Reports were both scheduled to talk and we’ve collaborated with both.

      We will do a call to action soon to get our readers submitting comments in writing.

    I’m not pleased they had it in Buffalo. Rochester would of had hoards of people in attendance

    i’m not happy about the possibility of higher prices, lower speeds and caps.

    would it be a bad idea to have these different types of companies merge?
    or any other combination of companies.

    would this make it worse for us consumers? or slightly better.
