ABSTRACT
The article reports on the results of a survey conducted by the Texas National Association of Telecommunications officers and Advisers which reveal that competition has not led to lower basic cable-rates in the state. It indicates that rates for a basic tier of cable service that includes off-the-air broadcast television signals and public, educational and governmental channels have actually increased from 2005 to 2007 in markets where there are two or more competitors.
