TN lawmakers unveiled legislation Mon to make it easier for AT&T to offer video service in the state. Under the proposal, telcos could obtain a 10-year state franchise from the TN Regulatory Authority. Telcos would have to build out to 30% of their existing service area within 3.5 years and then show that at least 25% of homes passed were low-income. The legislation came as a compromise between cable and AT&T. “The cable industry, including Comcast and Charter, stood firm to make sure that our members were treated fairly and that AT&T and other companies were not granted advantages in the law,” said the TN Cable & Telecom Assn.
