Comcast Settles Deal with DREMC

Duck River ElectricGood news for Comcast Cable customers in Franklin and Moore counties. Comcast has settled its disagreement with Duck River Electric Membership Corporation over space on utility poles. In a press release from the company, Comcast officials say that the cable company has paid DREMC “to avoid an interruption of service.” They did not specify how much they paid the electric cooperative. The cable company was facing a power cutoff to the cable equipment, according to a DREMC press release, for “past due bills.” DREMC said that approximately 7,000 Comcast cable TV or internet subscribers would have been affected if the cable company did not pay the overdue fees before June 24.
