Westborough mulls cable competition

Posted by Ralph Ranalli June 6, 2007 10:28 AM


Residents could have a choice of cable providers if the Board of Selectmen awards Verizon a license next Tuesday night, after holding a public hearing on the matter.

If approved, the license would run for 15 years (CQ), the maximum allowed under state law, and will provide the town with four percent of the company’s revenue each quarter to pay for public, educational, and government programming. The hearing will be held at 7 p.m. in the selectmen’s meeting room in town hall.
