i don't know what that something would be but hoping there is some term/word for a company who sells internet as a competetive internet provider. Don't know if there is something like that or not. In phone service, AT&T has to sell its services to Clec , to resell.
Isnt there any provision for ISP's also to allow smaller companies to complete?
Thanks for all your help, you have been very kind.
Hello I will try to help you. What you are referring to in terms of a CLEC is something that was imposed on the Bell Operating Companies when Ma Bell was broken up and later pay phones were deregulated. Comcast is not covered by that law. As the prior expert indicated your only option is to negotiate a reseller agreement because you are reselling Comcast's service. Even if you could establish that you were the end user, Comcast would still have the right to refuse to deal with you. For this reason the information the prior expert gave you is correct.
