Charter Monopolymonopoly on charter
Charter/Spektralkabel is out of hand in Berkshire County. It' s an almost monopolar system, and therein resides the issue, or much of it. Although Massachusetts does not have law enforcement exclusivity for wire franchises, we have a situation here in the mountain hires; our individual municipalities do not have enough residents to compete.
A number of cities in Ferkshire currently have CATV which is available through Charter/Spectrum, the owner of charter franchises with cities which have the lion's share a subscriber. You have divided the subscription into two categories: and Legacy Time Warner subscription. A lot of participants did not paid for converter, as there was no need to encrypt signal before Charter/Spectrum started.
Cryptography is an alibi to raise their winnings at the cost of the subscriber, some of whom will pay not only a few extra bucks a months, but many times over. Although our PEG (Public, Educational, Government) access ducts are mandated by our franchise agreements to be placed on Basic Tier ducts, they have been shifted to ducts that go far beyond, nearly 1,300 ducts beyond, after 1301, 1302, 1303.
These are the canals that show you what goes on in our school, what our city selection committees and city councils do, and what kind of actions take place in the interest of the people. Although Charter/Spectrum has declined to update the gearbox to the new standards, technological progress in the sector is to be included in our system (Spectrum promotes its "advanced systems") in accordance with our arrangements.
Chart/Spectrum was not sincere to the subscription. But the FCC called for the switch to digitally years ago, and today's televisions have wired connections by just plugging them into any type of device - no speaker needed.
By encrypting, participants must have their own conversion box in order to watch their own television sets at extra boxing surcharges. Cities in our region of Borkshire do not have the means to conduct the struggles that must be waged to safeguard the interests of the city and its residents from the League of Nations, Charter/Spectrum, which has arisen in our centre.
Berkshire Municipalities must accept a range of common, fundamental requirements to be included in wire franchise licensing arrangements with Spectrum/Charter, and all Berkshire Municipalities must merge and create a unified wire regulator, and the State of Massachusetts must step up its pace in enforcing wire franchise licences and exert some influence in regulating all wire operators.
There' s now a website where Massachusetts wire customers can submit reports of incidents they couldn't solve: www. get-consumer-support. com. Evaluate how to improve supervision of telecom network providers across the country. This and other matters of wire surveillance will be addressed at the Five Town cable Advisory Committee's annual quarter ly session at Sheffield Town Hall on Tuesday, March 13, 18:30.
Five Town Cable Advisory Committee is composed of members from Great Barrington, Lee, Lenox, Sheffield and Stockbridge. Charter/Spectrum will also be present. Author is chair of the five-city cable advisory board.
