CPS Energy: “We have better lawyers, more money, and more clout. CPSE will always win.” 

Helotes resident Jennifer Webster never thought her efforts over the past year to continue internet accessibility to her property would ultimately result in losing her AT&T service today.

Webster is caught in an ongoing battle with CPS Energy (CPSE) over access to utility poles. Because CPSE does not have a utility easement for the Helotes Country Club property to access Webster’s home through the adjacent tracts, the communications company cannot update her lines and equipment to fiber. 

As reported by Helotes News earlier in the year, (Helotes Small Business Battles CPS Energy Over Illegal Placement of Power Lines) Helotes Country Club owner Tammy Pointon owns property that CPSE has been accessing for years without a utility easement. Due to her ongoing battle with the utility company, AT&T cannot access the adjacent properties to install the appropriate upgrades.
