In this occasional series, we try to inject some facts into wild and wooly rumors which float through town and social media.
Rumor: According to Glo Fiber salespeople, the Town denied them a franchise to serve as a cable TV provider.
Ha! No! We really wanted them to have a cable TV franchise! Jay even drafted one for them. But they only wanted a franchise for internet service. Our guess is that they see streaming as the future, so the regulatory burden for cable providers just wasn’t worth the effort.
