Why do city officials allow a cable monopoly to exist in Hoover?
The City of Hoover does not have an exclusive, monopolistic arrangement with one cable company and Hoover’s city officials do not desire to have an exclusive deal with just one video programming service provider. Furthermore, federal law prohibits exclusive cable franchise agreements. Three companies, in fact, already have franchise agreements that allow them to provide cable services throughout the entire Hoover city limits.
