The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) this week imposed an $800,000 fine against Comcast for not adequately marketing its standalone broadband Internet service, which was a condition of its merger with NBC Universal. “Today’s action demonstrates that compliance with Commission orders is not optional,” FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski said in a statement. “The remedies announced today will benefit consumers and foster competition, including from online video and satellite providers, by ensuring that standalone broadband is truly available in Comcast’s service areas. I am pleased we were able to resolve this issue.” Read the full story at PC Mag.
