 +Currently, there are "two franchised cable televsion services in Davis - Comcast and AT&​T. ​ Comcast operates under a franchise issued by the City of Davis, while AT&T operates under a state-wide franchise issued by the California Public Utilities Commission."​ (See [[http://​city-managers-office.cityofdavis.org/​cable-and-media-services/​cable-television-franchise-management|the City's Franchise Management page]] for more.)
  
 +These operators are distinguished,​ in part, by owning the infrastructure that connects to each parcel in Davis (businesses and residences). They have a disincentive to make use of that infrastructure attractive to competing services. A municipal broadband fiber network, owned by the public and operated by a neutral party, would allow for increased customer choices of services.
