Very well written letter.

Maybe bunches of these letters will actually make a difference (also, pigs may fly). ;)

In antitrust law, the term "predatory pricing" is usually understood as describing a situation in which a monopolist will charge below-cost prices to drive out competition, only to raise prices once the competition is gone. I think that you should maybe consider just complaining of their "anticompetitive pricing" and not use the term "predatory."
Actually, that sounds like exactly what the cable companies are doing. They are a monopoly (where else are you going to get cable cards), and you can easily say that they are pricing their alternative abnormally low (from the OP's example it certainly appears to be below cost) in an attempt to drive a competitor out of the market.
