Also Noted: Comcast spent $2.8 million to lobby in Q2

Patent reform, tax matters and cable ownership limits were among the grocery list of topics Comcast paid $2.8 million to lobbyists for in the second quarter. The No. 1 cable company in the U.S. also worked legislators on Universal Service, the federal program that subsidizes phone service in rural and underserved communities. Not surprisingly, Comcast--the second largest Internet provider in the U.S.--also lobbied against proposed net neutrality rules and for number portability.
