I've heard that Red Hill PA has a deal with Comcast through 2014 that prevented Verizon from laying fiber optic cables. Does anybody know if this is true?

The worst part about it (if true) is that Verizon is no longer laying fiber optic cable.

Did Red Hill PA create a monopoly for Comcast on our dime? Have you ever had trouble negotiating with Comcast b/c there is no competition that carries phone, tv and internet?

Oh please tell me this is NOT true! We have a Pennsburg address but live off 6th Sreet in Red Hill.

I live just out of borough jurisdiction but Verizon needed to go through Red Hill to get to me. Comcast prices go up every year (a significant amount to me). This is something I would hope a local news organization would pick up.
