Cable One Agreement Renewal

At 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2016, at the Loma Colorado Main Library, the public was invited to provide their input on future cable television-related community needs and Cable One’s performance as a Rio Rancho cable television operator since 2008.  Those who could not attend the meeting and desired to provide input could do so via the city’s website.

In addition to gathering public input, at the meeting Cable One representatives gave a presentation that provided an overview of their current cable television operations in Rio Rancho, detailed their recent and planned investments in the cable television system, and what future plans they have pertaining to cable television service in the community. 

Cable One is seeking to renew their non-exclusive agreement with the City of Rio Rancho that allows them to operate a cable television system within city limits by utilizing public places (e.g., public streets, public rights of way).  Pursuant to federal regulations regarding the renewal of such agreements, public input is an aspect of the process.

Cable One’s current agreement with the city took effect in February 2008 and is set to expire in February 2018.  Where applicable, public input that is provided at the Nov. 29 meeting or online will be taken into consideration as Cable One and city officials engage in the agreement renewal process.

Cable One is among the 10 largest cable companies in the United States. Serving more than 650,000 customers in 19 states with high-speed Internet, cable television and telephone service.

Update: On March 31, 2017, the City of Rio Rancho received, per its request, a renewal proposal from Cable One. City officials are now in the process of review and follow-up with Cable One officials.  Likely in fall/winter 2017, the Rio Rancho Governing Body will consider approving a renewal proposal and at such time additional public comment will be taken.
