Wilson, NC is just a short drive, and Greenlight offers the following:
10Mbps Internet-only 10 Mbps 10 Mbps $39.95
20Mbps Internet-only 20 Mbps 20 Mbps $59.95
40Mbps Internet-only 40 Mbps 40 Mbps $79.95

100Mbps Internet-only 100 Mbps 100 Mbps $154.95

Across the country in Oregon, I am paying $79/mo for 7Mbps business fiber.

Time Warner Cable is price gouging. Please do not support TWC at these outrageous price levels. Petition your state representatives to repeal laws limiting competition in North Carolina.

I have had the service almost a month now and it's difficult not to
become angry at just how bad the service is. I prepared for the
installation by rearranging my home for a "bull in the China closet", it
wasn't quite that bad. I have not had service this poor since dial-up.
Latency to the local server is the worst, at least 25% of the time
Windows times out and runs diagnostic to find the server, the other 75%
of the time it is measured in sips of coffee waits. As bad as AT&T was
(I thought), even their slowest speed is better than Time Warner's "up
to 10Mbs. I'm not sure how much longer I can stand this. AT&T started me
at 23Mbs for $24.95, they lowered my speed to 6Mbs and then doubled the
price to $50 per month. They couldn't care less whether I stayed or
went. I cancelled them two days before the end of my pay period, and
they billed me for the final two days plus an extra month for good
measure. I know this, I will NEVER sign with Time Warner again.

If you need further information I will provide it, I just don't want
anyone else to be burnt.
