Verizon bids to be cable provider for Weston

Posted by Ralph Ranalli December 22, 2007 08:04 AM



Verizon has applied to become Weston's newest cable provider, requesting a license from the Board of Selectmen earlier this month.

Town Manager Donna VanderClock said that the town's Cable Advisory Committee is in the process of negotiating the license renewal of a current cable provider, Comcast. VanderClock said that whatever terms and conditions Comcast agrees to will also be required of Verizon, which could include an increased budget for staff, to maintain the local cable access station, and to buy more equipment.

Before the town can grant Verizon a license, the company also has to undergo a public hearing.
