REAL TITLE-1 BROADBAND COMPETITION SHOULD BE PART OF 09-191

Consumers are entitled to competition among network providers, application and service providers, and content providers.

 

PERTAINING TO 09-191

Does this mean cities must allow more than one provider in a city franchise of Cable to provide service if in rural area or town?

 

I have heard some TWC/Brighthouse Networks areas allow Earthlink as a reseller of the network that it is competing with, but my Cable company claims no other broadband provider reseller is capable of using their Internet network. Which gives me no competition in my area of Elmore County, Alabama.

 

So just how do I get a choice of competing provider when my nearest city franchises just one Cable network?

 

More REAL broadband competition is needed with these rules.

Here I have 1 broadband provider, Brighthouse.
