    I wonder if they will comment on the billions they have received to build fiber infrastructure and never did.

    Comcast is just a horrible company.

    This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2017/07/comcast-accuses-net-neutrality-advocates-of-not-living-in-the-real-world/) reduced by 89%. (I’m a bot)

    > Comcast said that net neutrality proponents who claim that investment wasn't hurt by the Title II rules "Aren't living in the real world." This comes less than a week after Comcast accused net neutrality supporters of "Creat[ing] hysteria.”

    > Pai has continually cited research purporting to show that broadband network investment started declining after the FCC's February 2015 decision to impose net neutrality rules backed by the commission's Title II authority over common carriers.

    > Even as Comcast increases its own capital spending, it insists that the FCC's Title II rules have harmed "The economy and consumers." For example, Cohen wrote, Comcast slowed down the rollout of its new Stream TV service because of an FCC investigation into the cable service's exemption from Comcast data caps.

    >Comcast yesterday claimed that “the threat of Title II regulation” started harming broadband network investment in 2011—years before the US government decided to apply Title II regulations to broadband.

    Since there apparently is no evidence that time travel exists and the regulations weren’t retroactive, that’s not possible.

    These are the same people that make new tax laws retroactive.

    couchdive claimed that doing business with “comcast is similar to doing large drug deals. Extreme chance of being ripped off, dangerous, dealing with scumbags, and even after the deal, you still could get fucked”.
