With the revitalization of the construction industry and the broadcast of Gated Communities in Florida, the number of different types of technologies from TV signal providers, mass cabling contracts, makes no sense. Many Florida municipalities have mass wiring contracts for their homes or units. A mass contract allows each unit in the municipality to have television signalling services from a single provider for what is called a discount. My community has a 15-year contract for the Comcast Cable Basic service, written by the developer before they leave the store. Basically, the channels are minimal and usually don`t need a cable-set-top box. In some municipalities, the lack of choice (i.e. competition) is not a problem. For example, the choice between service providers is often less important for older people than for a younger and technically experienced population. And for a resident population that lacks superfluous income, it is less important to have a choice than to have a discount on services. Therefore, mass agreements are typically used in seniors` housing and low-income housing. In addition, mass contracts for condominiums (unlike rental buildings) are often useful, because the governance of a condominium community is more democratic than the management of a dwelling in an apartment complex. A tenant who pays a monthly rent may rebel (for example.
B by disengaging or refusing to pay rent) against the prospect of having to pay for services he or she does not want, when the condo owner (probably) participated in the democratic process that led to the execution of the mass contract for the entire community. Finally, mass agreements for a temporary community, such as student housing, are simply logical and useful, as residents cannot commit to the one- or two-year subscription term normally required by cable and broadband companies for individual customers. b.
