One and Only Cox


Has anyone scrutinized their cable bill lately? Ours just surpassed $100 per month. That is outrageous for what we get. I remember as a kid living in a house with an antenna, we got 10 channels for free. We only have the basic and the next tier, and Internet. I am definitely looking into getting a dish service. Why don’t we have any competition for our cable service? What is the city doing to us by awarding service contracts without competition? Didn’t they just do it again with the Marborg/BFI/Allied debacle? [“Goleta Trash Wars Start, End,” 3/17/10, independent.com/goingwithmarborg.] —Gary Lapman, Goleta
