Depending on your local franchise agreement, some pay a franchise fee and some dont. A franchise fee is what comcast pays to lease the ROWS in your township. The franchise fee gets passed directly from comcast to your local township. Franchise fee arguments can be taken up by your local township as much as comcast. Like i said that fee gets directed to your township. NOT COMCAST. You do know that comcast has to get the line to you somehow. Usually thats by renting the ROW and that what the franchise fee is. Its up to your township or city not to charge it. NOT comcast
except I haven't had this fee since I signed up 2.5 years ago. this fee just started popping up last month.
and yes, I do understand your explanation but that's not the answer.
