AT&T: Not cable, no franchise needed

According to a report from xchange, AT&T is seemingly shifting its strategy about cable franchises: Now it says its not a cable TV offering so it doesn't need a license. The maneuvering is chafing a lot of municipalities. That said, the service provider just won a statewide franchise in California, but it did not disclose any further plans for expanding in the state. Verizon won a statewide franchise and has already begun rolling out its triple play services throughout the state.
