We want SuddenLink Cable Internet Service in Longview Tx.

Let's make sure that both The City of Longview (Chamber of Commerce) and SuddenLink know that we want something new and something better!

1. According to the City of Longview Ordinance 95, there can indeed be 2 (or more) cable operators in the same geographical location. But, in order for SuddenLink to operate here, it requires approval from the Chamber of Commerce. We need to make sure that the Chamber of Commerce for the City of Longview is aware of what the people want.
2. In order for SuddenLink to operate in Longview, they must install new infrastructure to carry services including physical fiber connections to distribution boxes. There would be considerable upfront cost and time for this. We have to let them know that if they invest in Longview, Tx that there is going to be enough interest to make it feasible and worthwhile.
