City Wants Internet Feedback

The City of Seattle wants to hear from residents about your use of the Internet , preferences in receiving information from the City and how they engage with their local government and community.
Take the survey in English or Spanish before April 20th
at
 http://www.seattle.gov/tech/indicator2013.htm  
The Technology Survey covers:
•    Internet,
•    Cable TV customer satisfaction,
•    How you want to give your opinion or get info from the city
•    Social media preferences,
•    Cell phones usage,
•    Concerns about cost or security
•    High-speed Internet services
Answers from this survey will help shape the City’s strategic and engagement efforts regarding cable re-franchising, the City’s web site, Seattle Channel and public outreach. It is also used by others to help plan community outreach and education programs.
My little editorial about this is, I can’t see the city not awarding the cable franchise to anyone other than Xfinity (Comcast). They have invested millions into infrastructure and would not just walk away without a huge fight (i.e. lawsuit). But perhaps the city can extract concessions from Xfinity with regards to service for low-income residents, internet access, or public access channels. But don’t expect the name on your monthly cable bill to change anytime soon (barring yet another corporate name change or merger).
