Comcast Settles State DNC Charge
Comcast failed to purchase the list to comply with the state no-call law, the attorney general's office said. The company was telemarketing from November 2002 to May 2003 to sell cable television subscriptions and other services to Pennsylvania residents in Philadelphia and eight other counties.
Residents also complained they received illegal calls from AT&T Broadband, which is part of Comcast Cable Communications Holding Inc. Along with paying the fine, Comcast agreed to abide by the state no-call law and buy the list, the attorney general's office said.
