Comcast Settles With FCC On Broadband Service Merger Condition

Cable giant agrees to pay $800,000 to U.S. Treasury

In an unprecedented move, the Federal Communications Commission found that Comcast didn't do enough to live up to one of the merger conditions it imposed when it approved the cable giant's merger with NBC Universal. Namely, it didn't do enough advertising, according to the FCC, and that's costing Comcast $800,000.
