IT'S FRICKIN EASY

Just end the geographic monopolies the cable companies have.

Right now there is no real competition, as one cable company is prevented by law from offering service in another companies area.

Give the money to the local cities / towns....

Force the telcos to sell the cable lines to the local cities / towns (they can use the money from the Feds)....

Open things up and shut down the geographic monopolies....
