The FCC comment period for the proposed merger of Sirius and XM ends on July 9th. To date, comments are nearing the 5,000 mark, and so far, consumers are voicing strong opinion for the merger. I have tracked the comments from the beginning with SSG and now Sirius Buzz, and must say that this proposed merger has garnered a lot of attention. At this point, the pro merger camp carries 78% of the comments. The anti merger camp accounts for about 21% of the comments. With only a couple of business days left it will be interesting to see how this pans out. The largest lead to date has been 60 points for those in favor of the merger. As of today, the lead for the PRO MERGER side is 57 points.
As stated, the comment period closes on July 9th. If you have not yet let your opinion in this matter known, why not visit SiriusMerger, and get yourself counted to the FCC as well as your congressmen and senators.
