Letter: Provider disparity
I would like to know why we, as city of Floresville residents, do not have any options for landline phone, Internet, or cable service providers. I don’t understand why we cannot access the numerous different providers from the San Antonio area to serve our community.
Verizon refuses to offer any residential Internet service, as the operator suggests they have no more lines available. I know for a fact that we have high-speed fiber optic Internet service in this area, as I have two separate lines running in front of my home. Why are the residents not able to access such service? Verizon must have a monopoly on the cost and service of our landlines, for an unknown reason to me.
Unsightly satellite dishes clutter the area, as we still have no cable service available. I’m sure that AT&T would be willing to assist us with that if our city was accepting.
I’m sorry to rant and rave, but I’m just really tired of our citizens not having viable options for such service. Any assistance in these matters would be greatly appreciated.
