Cable Price Survey Launched; Responses due September 14


The FCC’s Media Bureau has adopted an Order initiating an industry survey on cable prices.  Specifically, the Commission is directing a random sample of cable operators to respond to a price survey questionnaire about basic service rates, cable programming service, and equipment.  Survey feedback, which was previously submitted to Congress as part of an annual report on cable industry prices, will be included in the FCC’s upcoming biennial Communications Marketplace Report.  The data will also be made publicly available in aggregate form as averages representing segments of the industry.  Instructions for completing the questionnaire are attached to the Order as Appendix B.  Cable operators selected for the survey must complete and file the questionnaire by September 14, 2018.
