The title says it all. In about a 10-12 county area the only internet service providers are Time Warner and AT&T.
Why won't other ISP companies such as Verizon Fios, Comcast or many others move into the Beaumont area and start internet service? Time Warner has a strangle hold on the entire market. There are plenty of people who would switch because they are just completely fed up with Time Warner. I just can't understand why no other companies will move in and give Time Warner a run for their money.
Houston is less then an hour away and have many different ISP's available to choose from. BTW I have At&T DSL because Time Warner won't extend the lines 50feet across the road.
