Section 623(k) of the Communications Act of 1934 ("Communications Act"), as amended by the Cable Television Consumer Protection and Competition Act of 1992 ("1992 Cable Act"), requires the Commission to publish annually a statistical report that compares prices charged by cable operators facing effective competition with those of operators not facing effective competition for the delivery of basic service, other cable programming services, and equipment. This 1999 Report is issued in compliance with that statutory obligation.
