Default Re: Comcast buys Time Warner Cable for $45 billion

In the US, cable TV rates are very high; as such, the best way to prevent cord-cutting is to ensure that broadband rates are also very high....
i don't know what i'm missing here but the logic is lost on me....
ok i'm paying $70 a month for basic cable , and $40 a month for their internet.... soooo if i can watch everything thats on cable , on the internet , why do i need to keep paying the $70 for cable instead of just the $40 for the internet ? you don't have to have both...
