The Texas Cable & Telecommunications Association is making its push for telecommunications-reform legislation in the state.
The trade group led a rally at the State Capitol in Austin with more than 200 cable-system employees from throughout the state, who were there for the TCTA’s “Cable at the Capitol 2005.”
The TCTA said it wants to ensure a level playing field among providers, as well as to educate consumers about how competition is working for them.
“In addition to organizing and educating our employees, we have launched a number of initiatives to demonstrate the cable industry’s commitment to Texas consumers, including statewide television public-service announcements, a new Web site [www.txcable.com] that will provide real-time information on the industry and highlight our most important issues and a regular e-mail newsletter, among other public-outreach activities,” Connie Wharton, president of Cox Communications Inc. in west Texas and immediate past chair of the TCTA, said in a prepared statement.
“Our goals are simple: Give consumers more choices, enact fair rules for competition, demonstrate the industry’s huge economic investment in Texas and continue to take a leadership role in bringing high-speed Internet access and other advanced services to Texans,” she added.
