AT&T and Comcast have filed applications to transfer control of radio licenses in the Cable Television Relay Service, Satellite Communications Service, Land Mobile Radio Services, Common Carrier Point-to-Point Microwave Service, Private Point-to-Point Microwave Service, Wireless Communications Service, and Paging and Radiotelephone Services; and Domestic and International Section 214 Authorizations

Background

The proposed transfer of control will result from the spin-off of AT&T Broadband Corp. (“AT&T Broadband”), a holding company for AT&T’s broadband division, to AT&T’s shareholders, and the subsequent merger of AT&T Broadband and Comcast into wholly-owned subsidiaries of AT&T Comcast. After the merger is consummated, existing AT&T shareholders will hold 53 percent of the economic interest and between 54 and 58 percent of the voting interest of AT&T Comcast; existing Comcast shareholders will hold 41 percent of the economic interest and between 3 and 7 percent of the voting interest of AT&T Comcast; and Brian L. Roberts will directly or indirectly hold 1 percent of the economic interest and 33 percent of the voting interest of AT&T Comcast.

AT&T Broadband is a major provider of cable television service, serving 13.44 million customers through cable systems in which AT&T Broadband holds more than a 50 percent interest. AT&T Broadband also holds a 50 percent or less interest in cable systems serving in the aggregate 16,585,000 additional customers. The latter group includes AT&T Broadband’s 25.51 percent limited partnership interest in Time Warner Entertainment, which serves 12.8 million cable subscribers on systems that it owns or manages. AT&T Broadband also provides cable modem services and cable telephony services and holds attributable interests in certain national and regional video programming services.

Comcast also is a major provider of cable television service, serving 8,481,500 million subscribers through cable systems in which it holds an attributable interest. Additionally, it holds a general partnership interest in high-speed Internet access service, electronic commerce, video programming and other services. Comcast offers a number of services that it characterizes as “interactive TV services,” provides telephone service to over 40,000 customers, and offers integrated broadband communications services to over 4,000 business and governmental customers. Additionally, Comcast holds attributable interests in several regional and national video programming networks, and owns various sports teams and arenas.

The Applicants assert that the proposed transaction will accelerate the deployment of facilities-based broadband and cable telephony services, as well as digital video services. The Applicants submit that this will occur because the greater scale and scope economies, cost savings, and financial standing that the combined company would better enable it to make new investments in these technologies and services. The Applicants also assert that the combined company would be in a better position to leverage AT&T Broadband’s expertise in providing cable telephony on the Comcast cable systems.

Interested parties may file comments or petitions to deny the applications no later than April 29, 2002. Oppositions or responses to these comments and petitions may be filed no later than May 14, 2002. Given recent changes in the mail delivery process, we strongly urge commenters and petitioners to use the Commission’s Electronic Comment Filing System (ECFS).

Because this proceeding involves broad public policy issues, the proceeding will be treated as “permit but disclose” for purposes of the Commission’s ex parte rules. See generally 47 C.F.R. §§ 1.1200-1.1216. Should circumstances warrant, this proceeding or any related proceeding may be designated as restricted. Under “permit but disclose” procedures, ex parte presentations will be governed by the procedures set forth in Section 1.1206 of the Commission’s rules applicable to non-restricted proceedings.
