Planning Interconnection Systems: Options for the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area.
Cable Television Information Center, Washington, DC.
The first comprehensive study of the regional interconnection of cable television systems was made in the Twin Cities metropolitan area in 1973 and 1974. Five prototype interconnection system options were developed using existing technology. Selection of an interconnection system is an important public policy issue that demands thorough study; the legal status of such systems is unclear. Extensive data on capital costs and computer and television software costs are included. (Author/PF)
