Philadelphia: Tell Comcast to Pay Its Fair Share

To be delivered to Mayor Michael Nutter and Philadelphia City Council

Petition Statement

If Comcast wants the chance to profit from our communities for another fifteen years, our Mayor and City Council should make sure Comcast pays its fair share to Philadelphia.
There are currently 3,641 signatures. NEW goal - We need 4,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Philadelphia is renegotiating a "franchise" deal to let Comcast, headquartered right here in Philly, sell cable in our neighborhoods for another 15 years. While our cable and Internet rates go up, our city struggles with big budget cuts - and Comcast's taxes are less than half the average of what other Pennsylvania businesses pay. With this new franchise, we have a once-in-a-generation chance to lower our rates, ensure quality, affordable Internet service for poor and working folks, and to get Comcast to pay its fair share to the city that gives it so much.
