In 2001, the City of Lafayette entered into a Franchise Agreement with AT&T Broadband of Northern Colorado I, LLC. In 2002, the City approved the Transfer of Control of the City’s Cable Television System Franchisee to Comcast Corporation, wherein the franchisee remains obligated to comply with all terms and conditions of the existing franchise agreement as well as the Customer Service Standards adopted by the City in 2002.
Lafayette’s ability to negotiate specific franchise terms is a result of Federal and State laws.
