MYTH: No other cable providers are allowed to serve residents in our City.
 
Although the City has a cable franchise agreement with Advanced Cable Communications, this does not prevent other cable operators from offering their services in Coral Springs. The difficulty is in the feasibility of a new cable provider to build a whole new infrastructure to offer services in our City, and other companies are currently weighing the return on investment. Nevertheless, the satellite services, such as Direct TV and Dish Network, do offer various programming options. In addition, Governor Crist has recently signed new legislation that is expected to simplify the franchising process and invite the major telecommunication companies to offer similar services in Florida using conventional telephone lines, which should reduce the infrastructure barrier that is currently keeping competitors from offering service.
