Section 623(k) of the Communications Act, as amended by the Cable Television Consumer Protection and Competition Act of 1992 requires the Commission to publish annually a statistical report on cable prices, or more specifically, average rates for the delivery of basic cable service, cable programming service, and equipment.  The Act also requires the Commission to compare the average rates of cable operators subject to effective competition with those of operators not subject to effective competition.  This 2002 Report is issued in compliance with those statutory obligations.
