People in L.A. have no choice when it comes to cable companies. One cable company spans from San Diego to Ventura to Riverside ... a damn monopoly.
It's gotten so bad that the city of L.A. is suing Time-Warner.
I so resent it when people don't have choices. In Tucson, we don't have a choice, either. You either live in the Cox area or the Comcast area for cable.
