Re: Condo Assocation and Signed Agreements with Cable Provider

It means you will be paying for WOW services in your monthly dues whether you use it or not. You can do anything you want though. I own 2 rental properties where they have basic cable included. You can choose to use that, upgrade it and pay the difference, or not use it and go with anyone else you want. All it really means is you will be paying like $25/month extra in dues. If you use the basic cable it will save you maybe $10/month. If you don't use it then you just pay for nothing so others in the association can save that $10/month.

It is also possible that the board simply granted WOW a right of way in the development to install infrastructure to service any homes that want to subscribe.

That could be the case but the OP said the infrastructure already exists in the condos. They have RG6 aka coaxial cable in the units with other carriers who provide service now. It seems silly WOW would install all new infrastructure given it already exists.

If it works. The problem is that they don't know anything about the existing cable. Most cable companies are like that. I've dealt with both WOW and Comcast and they will run new lines for a new install, even if the old line worked fine. This way they know any problems are theirs and not with the old cable.

I wouldn't allow them to install new line. If they can't use the existing stuff they can't get my business. They can put on a tester and see how good the cable is before they use the existing stuff. If there is no issues they better use it. The last thing people want is 2-4 outlets in each room for each provider. STUPID!

Your not a good candidate for condo ownership then, its not your choice if the CCR's say otherwise.

My old apartment had 2 right next to each other in each room. One for cable and the other for FIOS. Same thing in my grandparent condo, one for cable, the other for an old master antenna system.

No wonder why the economy is in so bad of shape. Both use coaxial cable and can work on the same lines to the TV's. We switched from normal cable to FIOS and they used the same lines.
