Defying TWC; Cox breaks ground

> Salisbury, N.C. is building its own municipal FTTH network to carry voice, video and data traffic in direct competition--and defiance--of incumbent cable operator Time Warner Cable.

> Hometown Cable of Port St. Lucie, Fla. has shuttered its downtown storefront and moved to the build's second floor office because "foot traffic was so low we really didn't have a need for our storefront location anymore," said COO Jim Davis. 

> Cox Communications plans to break ground on a new 600,000 square foot office complex to house its technology operations including IT, Internet and engineering staff.

> Cable's R&D consortium CableLabs is "investigating how consumers can enjoy cable on any device they wish," according to president-CEO Paul Liao in response to five questions from a Boulder Daily Camera reporter.
