April 2nd, 2009, 12:25 PM #1Time Warner Will be losing my internet business
Time Warner Internet Price Plan
I already pay these parasites too much.
I will be going Dish, and finding an alternative internet solution.
Rochester goes into effect next month.
It's awesome, they won't let me pay for how much TV I watch (next to none), but they will charge me for internet by gigabyte.
Kiss it TW. You are Teh Suck.

I went with DishNetwork for TV and added DSL through my local phone company. The price is less and the speed is 2-3X faster. Said bye bye to TimeWarner back in December.

Checkout a couple of alternatives available in Rochester.
http://www.mycricket.com - although they might also have a limit on usage
http://www.clearwire.com - I don't think they limit usage, but throughput is only about 2Mbps
Both offer wireless connectivity with roaming which makes it more convenient than Time Warners RR product.Someday starts today

TimeWarner has the crazy business model of "Charge more and offer less". I hope it works out for them as competition increases.

When you change providers make sure you tell the new provider why. It isn't a good thing to change providers only to find the new provider does the same thing. You want the new provider to think this is a selling point of their service, thus keeping it the way it is, unlimited access at a fixed price.Expert who says Moo

I've read where more and more ISP's are limiting bandwidth usage and charging for "overages".
With more and more home businesses, homes with networks/simultaneous users, VOIP (aka Vonage, MagicJack, etc), and streaming movie services like NetFlix all going over their lines -

I too have crummy TW cable internet. I dropped the TV service a while back. I just moved and received a bill yesterday containing a mysterious $14.95 fee. When I called and asked what the fee was for, I was told "Installation at your new location". I hooked up the modem (which I already had from my last house) and network myself. They did nothing but flip a switch - my apartment was pre-wired for cable. I was not pleased that they were charging me (and had not informed me of said charge) for nothing. The charge was "courtesy waived" after 15 mins on the phone, but really. How much do they MAKE off these bogus charges? Time for DSL.*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

I think we all have horror stories with our local cable monopoly (Time Warner, Charter, Comcast, etc...).
The day where one company owns all of the wires needs to end. A few cities are starting to offer wireless plans and I hope more companies begin to offer good wireless plans so there is more competition. The technology should be getting better so stronger signals can be available to a larger region without wires.
We also need to end the situation where one company decides which tv channels we can watch. We certainly need to make sure those companies can't decide which websites we can access. Having an "internet lineup" similar to the "cable lineup" would be a disaster for the openess and competitiveness of the internet.[URL=http://www.investeverymonth.com]InvestEveryMonth.com[/URL] - Build Wealth

I'm sorry you are having trouble.
