I'm not sure about other towns, but Town of Weymouth was the the one 
who rejected Verizon because of their existing contract with Comcast. 
Other towns may be different.  He did say that in this state it's not 
uncommon for the towns to have exclusivity agreements in exchange for 
money.  Unfortunately, unless you know someone in your town/city 
you'll probably never get a straight answer.
