PorscheDude writes: My neighbor was told recently by Adelphia that it would cost $1700 to hook up cable to their house. I live 60 feet away and it cost me $50 six months ago. We live in a new ‘hood just outside of town, and both houses were pre-wired for cable. Is it any wonder that Adelphia will be out of business by the end of the summer?
The company intends to file for bankruptcy on Monday, but there’s no indication if they intend to withdraw from this or other markets. If they did leave the Charlottesville area, though, city government could get into the business of running the cable system. The city will soon begin a study of area cable needs to see how Adelphia measures up. David Dadurka has the story in today’s Progress.
