Here’s The Beef

The Pittsburgh City Council unanimously voted to carry on a letter-writing campaign to senators, representatives and President Bush to restore its regulatory power on cable systems. In a heated session, the council began a move to get control of cable rates and service from TCI of Pennsylvania Inc. They also made plans to have a public hearing on subscriber complaints; such beefs range from a recent rate escalation to constant busy signals on the company’s service line. TCI, which has 101,000 subscribers in the area, took over the Pittsburgh system when Warner Communications gave up on it due to the list of requirements the council demanded a few years back.
