A new group, the Alliance for Broadband Competition, will be pitching reporters Monday on why the government should nix the Verizon/SpectrumCo/Cox deal.
The Alliance, which held a press conference to cut the ribbon on the effort, is made up of activist group deal critic Public Knowledge, as well as RCA: The Competitive Carriers Association, T-Mobile, and the American Antitrust Institute. Free Press participated in the press conference and shares their concerns, but is not a member of the coalition. “It’s our policy now to refrain from formally joining industry coalitions,” said a Free Press spokesperson.
They bill themselves as like minded, but more accurately it is “don’t like” minded, since all are on the record as either concerned with, opposed to, or seeking conditions on, the deal.
