All that investment by MSOs
Let's not forget the TWC social contract, in which FCC required them to re-build their systems to HFC, but allowed them to increase rates $1/month/yr for five years (1995-2000) to pay for it...and that fee, no matter who they sold to, has never gone away. Not an investment by them from any of their funds, but always paid for by CATV subs.
Funny how we paid that extra $5/mo in MN, and didnt get HFC until 2000....
Continental had a soc con too.
