company, a la Comcast, exclusive rights for the area (hence, the local
monopolies all over the place) and collect "Franchise Fees" (just look at
the bill).  So the government sees it as a revenue source, hence good for
them to do! :-(

The absence of government intervention here would definitely enable
competition for companies that wanted to compete, thereby reducing the
monopolistic effect.

Perhaps "doing something" means discussing with those city/county leaders
and probably voting differently! :-)  I think those exclusive deals need to
go away or morph into less exclusivity in order to enable competition.
