Why would you think that I am lobbying govt? I have some private businesses in mind.
With AT&T U-Verse out of the way, that's one less potential competitor in this metro area. Area Telco's are fractured between AT&T, CenturyLink, Frontier, and little guys. Comcast and Mediacom are local cablecos.
Always believed that AT&T hasn't installed U-Verse here because it doesn't control entire Peoria metro/suburbs territory. Plus, other large local metro(in the Peoria TV market) is Bloomington-Normal. B-N is now Frontier territory.
