RE TOM SPEYER'S letter: "Please, Council, approve FIOS."

Tom is not alone in the struggle with Comcast.

Comcast holds the residents of this city over the coals and pretty much does and charges as it wants because there is no competition.

Competition is healthy and I bet Comcast will feel the loss if Verizon is allowed to bring FIOS to Philadelphia.

Dish service is not comparable to cable. Maybe the Daily News can start a campaign to get the residents to write members of City Council on this issue. Better yet, post in the opinion column the names and addresses of all City Council members so the residents can write them on this subject.

I'm willing to stand against a giant like Comcast - will the Daily News take the lead?
