Telco TV ranks higher with customers than cable TV
Consumers continue to rank television services provided by telephone companies higher
than those from cable TV providers, according to J.D. Power &
Associates’ 2011 customer-satisfaction survey for residential television
CC Communications, the incumbent local exchange carrier (telephone
company) serving Churchill County, NV, offers Digital Television
Services to its customers. Only 18% of homes in the United States have
fiber to the home access. CC Communications provides fiber to the home
availability to 55% of Churchill County now and will make it available
to 98% by 2014 at a total expenditure of $40-plus million.
Verizon FiOS service, where available, delivers services over fiber
to the home. AT&T U-verse, where available, delivers services over
fiber to the home or fiber to the node (an infrastructure where the
service is delivered to a community by fiber optic cable, then to
individual homes in that neighborhood by copper wires), depending on how
AT&T’s network is installed in areas where it offers U-verse.
