Value for money:
Ive had SeCable for awhile off and on now. My connection is always solid 28-31mb Down and always 1.91mb up. Everything was great for the past 6 months ( had them for the past 7 months ) 3 Days ago i got a letter. Excessive Bandwidth Usage: $241.41 + 74.99 = $316.40 For the month of April. HOLY $@#%@#! I'm stuck with the bill, they told me they mailed me a letter, i never got it. The rep goes HEY we emailed it to. I said awesome what email address did you send it to? Oh we don't have one on file. WOW!!!!!!!?!?!?!?!?!!?!??!? Still won't waive it. Now I'm forced to pay 140 dollars a month for 12/2 from PenTeleData so i don't have a cap now. Apparently they cannot give me docsis 3.0 service even though SeCable leases their internet from them and they offer docsis 3.0.... Doesn't make any sense at all. The only bright side i see from this is PenTeleData DOES NOT CHARGE for additional static ips. At least now i run my own servers again like i did the last time i had commercial inet.
Short Version: DO NOT MOVE INTO A SECABLE OR PENTELEDATA AREA. Do research rent / buy somewhere else. Honestly, I'm moving because of the internet options here (no ETA on that right now looking for a home in a fiber neighborhood). I work in IT, I'm not a simple user. If you want speed and know what the heck it is. Stay away from their areas otherwise you'll never have it.
Also DSL is a joke, sure cheaper, sure no cap, SLOW. Verizon does have the 10/15 DSL package here but the "nodes are taken" and "can only provide 5mb service at the time" I can't deal with that. For me to have less then 10MB is not possible. Plus they only offer 1mb up.
I would also like to take a minute to thank RCN.
Thank-you RCN for being a CHUMP and running all brand new lines in Wilkes-barre JUST TO SELL THEM TO THE CHUMP COMPANY THAT OFFERS JUNK IN MY AREA. Their response: "We have decided to focus on the areas that we already have service in"
Why did you spend over 6 months running brand new fiber and setting up nodes all over wilkes-barre for then? CHUMP CHUMP CHUMP.
