Fanning the flames

Given all the controversy surrounding the cable industry in the Netherlands, which has now escalated into a significant political issue, I am wondering how consumers and politicians will react to today's news of Liberty Global's acquisition of Cablecom in Switzerland for $2.185bn. I also wonder what Cablecom's decision to sell out just ahead of the IPO (and below the announced price range) says about market sentiment.
