Don't know if it's true either but Duo has the ONLY game in town when it comes to cable TV and landline telephone so I have my doubts about it. Roy Lee Helm at American Cable or whatever the name is only has wireless internet service available and my understanding is you have to be in eye sight of a water tower to get it because his antennas that he provides the service with is mounted on top of the water towers. If you can't see a water tower or at least get your recieving antenna up on a pole or top of your house or something to give it a clear line of sight to the antenna on the towers then you won't be able to get internet from it.

Competition is a good thing for consumers and a single business having a monopoly on something always gets the consumer screwed. Duo has fought and will keep on fighting to keep any competition out of their service area so they can maintain their monopoly on internet service, cable TV and telephone service. There are federal laws that covers a lot of this stuff and I don't see how they get away with it. They couldn't anyplace else besides podunk Russell County.

That will be GREAT if it's true. It will force Duo to be competitive in pricing or loose a lot of customers. Think I'll call and check into it tomorrow and if it's true then Duo will probably loose another customer who is tired of being screwed by their monopoly.

That might be a reasonable price to pay to guarantee your internet service provider won't violate online security where local employees might be routinely accessing your internet privacy against the FCC 1996 Federal Communications Act .

Duo's service isn't even competitive with what they had in larger cities over ten years ago... And it costs more!
