Seattle tabs Wave Broadband as cable provider

[Puget Sound Business Journal]

The Seattle City Council on Monday dropped Millennium Digital Media and added Wave Broadband as the city's second cable provider.

City officials said Wave Broadband will take ownership of Millennium's cable franchise, which serves the Central Area, Beacon Hill, downtown Seattle, and parts of Queen Anne and Capitol Hill. They added that Wave Broadband has promised subscribers an entry-level package of $22, which is about half of Millennium's entry-level package.

Comcast is the city's other cable provider.
