Comcast defends its local rates for cable TV 2011-05-17 00:00:00   source: Boston.com

Cable television giant Comcast Corp. yesterday defended its local rates as Mayor Thomas M. Menino filed a petition asking the Federal Communications Commission to give the city control over the price of basic cable service in Boston.

Yet, even if he succeeds, the great majority of Boston cable subscribers probably won’t see much of a change in their bills.

Menino wants the federal agency to reverse a 2002 decision that stripped the city of the power to regulate cable rates. “The commission’s decertification of the city, coupled with the failed promise of effective competition, has left the majority of subscribers in the city unprotected from Comcast’s market power,’’ the petition says.
