(A)   The cable system shall generally conform to the system design and channel capacity specifications set forth by the grantee in its application for a franchise submitted to the county. At a minimum, the grantee shall construct a system with equivalent technical capabilities to a hybrid fiber coax [HFC] 750 MHZ cable system. The grantee is permitted to modify its design and implementation plan, pursuant to the conditions provided herein, to accommodate technological innovations and refinements that enhance system reliability and capacity.
   (B)   The initial construction required under initial franchise agreement shall be completed in compliance with a schedule specified therein. If the grantee shows that, notwithstanding its due diligence, that it has been unable to extend service to a specified area because the acts or omissions of a third party (excluding the grantee’s subcontractors or agents) or other factors have caused a delay in construction beyond that reasonably expected during the course of construction, and the grantee proposes a reasonable alternative deadline for extension of service to that area, the county shall grant reasonable extensions of time to complete construction.
   (C)   In the event the county requires the grantee to interconnect the cable system with any other entity for any purposes, the county and grantee shall mutually agree upon the terms of interconnection.
