HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regardUnfortunately, no. You have no recourse. That is because the cable/internet suppliers form contracts with certain counties. It is a monopoly. And so I suggest you will need to talk to your county elected officials about the service they are allowing be brought to the residents of your county. It's a big government monopoly. It is not discrimination against you personally.Please note that I can only provide information for what you ask. In that regard, if you have other questions or need clarification, please post them here. Otherwise, I appreciate your Positive Rating as that is how I get credit for my time and information.Thank you
