Flickering Super Bowl Game on Your TV?
Some Charter Communications cable customers may have noticed segments of the 50th Super Bowl flickering off and on during the game this past Sunday, February 7th. Some Charter customers may have been holding their breath, recalling another Super Bowl Sunday when the cable provider was off line for most of the day, and providing a signal about thirty minutes prior to that game time.
The City of Lamar has asked local residents and Charter Cable customers to contact the City Council, Mayor or City Administrator concerning quality of performance of the cable provider. Administrator John Sutherland commented that a price hike from Charter is looming later this month for a Service Computerized Fee and a late fee. At the same time, the city’s contract with the company has not been finalized and Sutherland is meeting with Charter’s Government Relations Manager on February 17th.
Linda Williams, Lamar City Clerk, said her office has received some calls and emails from local customers who have voiced their opinions on the company’s service. Residents will have until the 17th of the month to respond, either through the city’s email at email@example.com or they may call the city’s main phone number at 719-336-1372 during normal business hours.
