Comcast Nation: Map Shows Dominance if Time Warner Buyout is Approved

WebpageFX took a look at how large of an impact Comcast’s buyout of Time Warner would have on the Internet provider landscape.
The resulting map based on those findings is startling.
Using more than 56 million visits from 2013, WebpageFX took a look into the current ISP state-by-state breakdown, before incorporating the potentially dominant Comcast.
U.S. Senator Al Franken warned telecommunications regulators last week that Comcast’s proposed acquisition of Time Warner Cable could result in “higher prices, fewer choices, and even worse service for consumers.”
Comcast, the largest U.S. cable company, seeks to acquire No. 4 Time Warner Cable for $45.2 billion. The proposal faces reviews from U.S. regulators who must decide if the buyout diminishes competition sufficiently to harm consumers.
The first map, based on WebpageFX‘s analysis of web traffic, shows the top Internet service provider in each U.S. state at this time. The second map shows the top ISP in each state if the Comcast-Time Warner deal is approved:
