Can the town negotiate a better rate?
The Telecommunications Act of 1996 deregulated rate making for all cable television rates except the basic service tier. The Cable Division of the Massachusetts Department of Telecommunications and Energy regulates rates for basic service tier. However, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has ruled that there is effective competition in Brookline, disallowing rate regulation of basic service tier.
