Most Time Warner Cable subscribers in Wisconsin, including all in the metro Milwaukee area, will become customers of Charter Communications as part of a divestiture deal announced Monday by Comcast.And remember that when Milwaukee handed over cabling rights it was under a monopolistic agreement that was also a license to print money, raise rates, put people on hold while they aged - - and, apparently - - to sell out and dump customers on to another system where they can get overcharged, underserved and generally disrespected anew.
Talk about corporate welfare and special considerations from government, at the expense of the governed.
No wonder cable is a dying, consolidating industry.
