Time Warner Cable sucks!

#1

Ok. I'm starting to experience my internet connection is cutting out frequently. Since Insight Communications got merged w/ Time Warner Cable. I'm thinking that TWC has made things worse. They have piss poor customer service and they can't network for shit. I heard that TWC's Roadrunner email service providers are out in the tech news. I can't wait til a superior cable company comes along to make my life easier. Take a good looks at Google reviews of TWC. Lay off whatever drugs you're smoking, take your heads out of your asses and improve your service TWC!

Jimmy & Viper. Unleash your bashing!

Here is the service from Bell Canada,

This is in an industrial area, commercial service, costly and Bell's idea of 'The Fastest Speed' ^_^

As for service, they do excel in their automated billing service, cash is gone usually a day or two before the due date.

Jimmy & Viper, as this forum's resident bagel-eater, I demand a $5.00 royalty for each reference to Jews made in the forthcoming posts.

I use Cox Cable out where I live, and pay $70 a month for this Internet:

Cox is not too bad provided the groundwork for the cables is new-ish. I once had a major month-long struggle with Cox trying to get them to lay down new groundwork for cable; a tech came by when installing my TV service one day, and he managed to take out my Internet service. Afterwards he said he couldn't do anything about it, and just left me with no Internet and no TV, a $100 monthly bill, and a very angry customer.

I'd post my speeds but my WiFi card is on the fritz.

I have Verizon FiOS and I hate it with a passion. Speeds are 75/25 but I get throttled like fucking crazy. They simply DO NOT want you to use your connection for anything but basic browsing. Even then, YouTube and Twitch.tv are throttled like crazy. I've configured my firewall to block the YouTube cache servers, but mobile devices on WiFi can't be fixed. My brother is the Twitch watcher and he has no idea how to fix this....apparently it's done on Verizon's end and nothing can be done about it. Uploading data gets throttled hella quick. Sending data to our FTP server, in our own house, is Sandvined to oblivion.

My only other option is Cablevision, and I've had nothing but problems with them in the past. In the next couple months I'm going to get their 101mbps/25mbps plan and compare it side by side to Verizon. If it's reliable for a few months, I'll switch the whole house over.

Well Hmm. Here's my speed but... Whenever I play a youtube video. The video pauses but the sound is going and resumes. Happens to Twitch.tv, or any video from any gaming website or CNN too.

Google "block Time Warner youtube cache servers" and follow the directions.

You can use the command prompt (idiot proof), or configure your routers firewall (harder, but works on all devices in the network).

I pay a bit over $100 a month for 6.0 Down and 0.5 Up. (AT&T DSL) and I get this on average...
http://www.speedtest.net/result/3563771788.png


But today I have been getting this... Note that this includes free disconnects about every 15 minutes, "BUT WAIT! THATS NOT ALL!" after a disconnect it takes about 5 minutes to reconnect only to flake out again a few minutes later. Since AT&T bought Bell South here, it has steadily gone down hill.

I have been with TWC since they first came to my city 10 or 15 years ago, whatever it is. I never had to call tech service for my internet connection, only for an appointment to get my newer cable modem when they upgraded their system. I am very pleased with the service.

My connection has been steady for ages now, apart from a hickup earlier this year due to a signal amplifier/distributor going bad.
Provider offers a 200/10 Mb/s option (at €54), but I don't really see the point.

If those averages are correct, the US of A aren't doing too bad compared to the rest of the globe (a lot better than Greenland for starters).
You're even beating the mighty Russian bear by 0,4 Mb/s!
It's hard too believe the highest score belongs to Romania, though.

He was a good dude. Shame I didn't get to speak to him more recently than I did before he passed. But that's what you get for doing heroin like an idiot.

Viper, the correct response wasn't to upvote me, it was to say "neither do you!" and call me a hippie. Get with the program!

You're a liberal cum gurgling Rayban wearing faggot for moving there, and I hope everyone in California dies a slow painful death due to vaginitis. You can't kill yourselves and end all the misery because Feinstein banned all your guns and Leland Yee shipped them out of state.

Is that their standard service or did you pay extra for "business class" speed ? TWC offers that too but I've never felt the need enough to pay for it.

Yesterday, the internet access at home was horrible! Keep loosing and gaining internet access. This sums up perfectly well. These reviews sum it up.

That's their standard service... a high tier of it, anyway. It's less than $100/month.

That Lexus I bought 3 months ago ended up costing the same as what I paid for it to get it in shape. Still worth it for a car you love.
