Multichannel News reports on National Cable & Telecommunications Association president Kyle McSlarrow's response to new House telecom bill.
"In a few weeks, the House Energy and Commerce Committee is expected to pass a bill that would award national cable franchises to phone companies and allow them to target affluent communities.
Cable, which has had to meet build-out requirements for decades, has complained that allowing the Bells to cherry-pick rich suburbs is unfair competition.
“The Bell monopolies want a different result. They don’t want to play by the rules. They want a different and more advantageous set of rules for them,” McSlarrow said."
