How's THAT for government help? said by FFH:
Cable companies are regulated 6 ways from Sunday. By state & local boards and by the FCC.
A) no they don't. Cable was deregulated back in the 1980's trust me I'm old enough to remember. If cable was REALLY regulated your cable bill would be at least 1/3 lower than it is now.
Cable was unregulated, regulated, unregulated.. so on and so on...
And your second mistake.. yes, the FA CAN in fact tell the company where they must provide internet services... so long as they do it at the time of contract renegotiation. When the contract is up for renewal, everything is negotiable.
