ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the entry of AT&T Inc. in the local cable television market of Chicago, Illinois. AT&T is laying the groundwork for breaking the monopoly of Comcast Corp. in the market. AT&T has plan to launch TV service in some suburbs and parts of the city by spring, and aims to reach all Illinois households within three years. Patrick Comack, an industry analyst with Miami-based Zachary Research, said that the buildout would take time and will involve some technical challenges.
