WIN Expects Seattle Deal


DENVER-Western Integrated Networks expects to gain a franchise in Seattle this week.

A City Council committee last week recommended a 10-year deal, which would allow WIN to be the third cable operator offering broadband services to 266,000 area homes. The council will vote today (Feb. 12).

"Anything can happen, but we expect the ordinance will pass," said Tony Perez, director of the Seattle Cable Office.

Seattle would be WIN's seventh community, including its building permit in Portland, Ore.
