San Francisco is re-negotiating its cable franchise for the first time in 40 years. The new contract will state what cable and Internet services Comcast will provide. This agreement must serve the needs of our communities—your needs.


These are some of the things we can win together:
-- CHEAPER CABLE RATES for seniors and low-income households
-- FREE CABLE & INTERNET access in government offices and nonprofits
-- MONEY for media production in local neighborhoods
-- MORE MONEY for Public, Education, and Government channels
-- FREE WIRELESS Internet access in public spaces
-- STRONG CONSUMER PROTECTIONS regarding rates, privacy, and service
-- WORKER'S RIGHTS to collective bargaining & prevailing wage standards
-- WHAT ELSE?


Comcast is the largest cable operator and high-speed broadband Internet provider in the country. With 2004 revenues of 20 billion dollars, the company should pay its fair share to meet the communication and information needs of our community.
