Q. - How can we get another cable company
in Terrell. Other companies have better promotions than Suddenlink.
Answer - The City's franchise agreement with Suddenlink
expires this year.
When the agreement expires, the City will consider all possibilities
in a new franchise agreement.
The original franchise agreement was not exclusive and does not prohibit
other cable companies from doing business in Terrell. However, it would
appear to be impractical for another cable company to set up next to
an existing cable company, unless they could share the same cable lines.
Unfortunately, the cable companies are not structured in the same manner
as Electric Utilities and Telephone Companies are where you have a service
delivery company and a retail provider.
When the discussion of a cable franchise agreement takes place at the
council it will be posted on our meeting agendas. We would certainly
like to have any citizen input.
If you have specific comments or suggestions you would like to have
on the written record now, you can get them to the City Secretary's
