Philly Gov Wants You to Take this Survey About Cable Use

Guess what, Philadelphia — your time to productively complain about (or praise) the cable company has finally come.

The City of Philadelphia’s Office of Innovation and Technology (OIT) is currently accepting responses for a Verizon Cable Franchise Survey. Responses will be used to gather feedback as Philly moves through the renewal process of its 15-year cable television franchise deal with Verizon Fios, which started in 2009 and will expire in 2024.

“The online survey is designed to provide City residents with an opportunity [to] contribute input about their Verizon cable service to assist the City in being thoughtful about future franchise requirements that could improve service,” said Kelsey Hubbell, communications manager for OIT.
