STATEMENT OF NCTA PRESIDENT & CEO ROBERT SACHS REGARDING THE FCC's ORDER ON THE "PLUG AND PLAY" AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE CABLE AND CONSUMER ELECTRONICS INDUSTRIES

"Today’s action is good for consumers, because it will hasten the day when “digital cable ready” television sets will reach the market, making it easier for cable customers to access digital television services such as high-definition television programming without the need for set-top boxes. It also validates the affirmative response of the cable and consumer electronics industries to the encouragement they received from FCC and Congressional leaders who urged the two industries to reach voluntary agreements to resolve DTV transition issues.

Comments of Rob Stoddard, SVP, Communications & Public Affairs in Response to J.D. Power 2003 Residential Cable/Satellite TV Customer Satisfaction Study

<p>The J.D. Power results show that in a highly competitive market place, cable operators are closing the gap with satellite providers in customer satisfaction. The cable industry’s $75 billion investment to launch advanced broadband services continues to spur construction activity that occasionally can disrupt customer service, yet the fruits of that investment – including the rollout of popular new services such as digital cable, video on demand, HDTV, high-speed Internet access, and competitive local phone service – are evident in consumer adoption of these new products.

Comments of Rob Stoddard, SVP, Communications & Public Affairs, NCTA Regarding PIRG Report on Cable Regulation

<p>"The wild and unfounded claims of these Washington-based advocacy groups are recycled arguments that fell out of favor a decade ago. The regulatory environment envisioned by Congress in 1996 and maintained by the FCC has fostered the most robust telecommunications marketplace in the world. It’s providing a better deal for consumers, who are getting far more for their dollar. How odd that so-called consumer groups would prefer to take all that away.</p>

Comments of Rob Stoddard, SVP, Communications & Public Affairs, in Response to Reported Findings of a J.D. Power Survey of Residential ISP Customers

<p>The recent findings from a J.D. Power survey of residential ISP customers underscore the competitive choices consumers enjoy. While the J.D. Power results regarding consumer preferences are consistent with earlier research – including a study reported by Strategis Group in 2001 – the study fails to address or recognize the historic lead that cable modem service has enjoyed over DSL, both in terms of actual subscriber numbers, and consumer satisfaction.</p>
