Not surprising look at what's happening in the Airline world.  Lots of consolidations.

 

Going another direction; When I first joined U-Verse in late 2008, there was news of AT&T possibly selling U-Verse to Comcast.  Smiley Wink  Seriously, though.

Thank you, my thoughts, for presenting that information about the ranks and estimated total subscribers.

 

Comcast will want Time-Warner Cable the most.

 

Time-Warner Cable subscribers will want, should the company sell, for Comcast to not win over buying Time-Warner Cable.

IMO, one large company does NOT need to buy another. I have no issue with two smaller companies joining forces...but when the big get bigger? That's not right.
