The Mayor is Right about Cable Charges

May 10, 2011

Mayor Thomas Menino believes Boston’s cable viewers are being ripped off by Comcast, Boston’s major supplier of cable.

Cable costs for those with Comcast in the city have doubled in price in the past two years, a situation the mayor does not wish to condone.

He wants the city to be able to set its own cable rates and has asked the Federal Communications Commission to give him that right.

There is good reason to believe the FCC will do just that.

Once again, the mayor has shown he remains capable of thinking outside of the box.

Why put up with cable rates that are doubling when the cost of delivering the service remains the same or has dropped because of new advantages and developments gained with technology?

Thank you Mayor Menino.
