REPORT OF THE ABINGTON CABLE ADVISORY COMMITTEE

The year 2005 was a fairly stable year for cable television subscribers in
Abington. As the town entered the sixth year of its contract with Adelphia, our
cable service continued to have substantially fewer problems and complaints
as compared to previous years.

Subscribers have continued to experience improved reliability in cable
service and have continued to be able to choose among many new products
such as digital cable television, cable internet service, digital video
recording, video on demand and high definition television. We look forward
to seeing more advances throughout the next year as Adelphia is sold to
Comcast. We also look forward to a seamless transition from Adelphia to
Comcast.

Finally, local access programs continue to be broadcast. The committee would
like to remind citizens that variety in local access programming can only be
accomplished with the assistance of community volunteers. The studio was
recently equipped with new digital video cameras and new editing technology
that will enhance the quality of studio productions. Training is available for
community, school, fraternal and sports organizations as well as individuals.
We once again encourage citizens to become involved in their local studio
activities.

                       Respectfully submitted,

                       Beth Golden, chairperson
                       Donna Sloan
