Big surprise: Ex-FCC chief defends the cable industry [telecom]

By Michael Hiltzik August 30, 2013, 1:59 p.m.

Former FCC Chairman Michael K. Powell, who is now the chief lobbyist for the cable industry, takes issue with my Aug. 25 column about how cable monopolies such as Time Warner and Comcast have made Internet access slower and more expensive than in many countries around the world.

Powell, in a letter to The Times, grouses that I overlooked "the fact that America is among the world's leaders in broadband choice, availability and quality."
