A new report from advocacy group Free Press found that Comcast (CMCSA) raised its basic cable rates the most in the sector over the past four years.

Comcast boosted prices on its non-promotional basic package by 68% over the period and on its premium offering by 21%.

The company is on the radar of regulators and politicians tasked with looking at the implications on consumers of the mega-merger with Time Warner Cable.
