Telcos Lose Gunfight In Texas

I thought with SBC based in Texas that this would have been a lay-up for the incumbents, but I guess the cable lobby did a better job.

Basically this means for IPTV service to be delivered to a community, the Baby Bells will have to go through the franchise process, just like the cable companies do.

How this impacts FTTP is anyone's guess, but my guess is that it will SLOW things down.
