wow

Somehow metrocast has there own little forum. Now we can rant and rave all we want.!!

In my humble opinion, I think metrocast needs to increase speeds, we were supposed to get one at the end of march, but that never happened

oh well. Maybe someone will actually post here.

Re: metrocast

That is there speed.

I wouldnt recommend uncapping anymore, they upgraded, were able to stop it, and can trace if need be.

I miss the uncapped days

650KB/sec downloads, gone. Why wont they upgrade!!!!!

More like, Oh well....

Yes, it appears that they've bumped the speed recently. Whoopee!! Now they're only 50% slower than the competition.

We're paying good money for this service, we deserve better!!

At least now they can claim to be a broadband provider and actually meet the definition outline by the public utilities commission.

Given all the recent lawsuits against misrepresented products, I'm wondering how long it will be before Metrocast gets hit with a suit for representing their service as "Lightening Fast"?

Anyone that uses Metrocast can attest to the fact that it leaves much to be desired. If lightening was truly as slow as Metrocast, I believe we'd have a solution to our energy problems, since bottling it would no longer be a problem.

BTW- is anyone else as sick of hearing Shirley Clark make excuses as I am?

Re: More like, Oh well....

I'm only sick of hearing people like you cry about everything. I spend a lot of time in a MetroCast System, and I'm quite happy. My connection is fine. I get @ least 80% the rate advertised (as it should be).

I guess this is a place for people who ar e sick of their lives to share their misery...I guess it really DOES love company!

can't we all just enjoy our Internet?

Hello

I am considering a home purchase in Belmont currently, is the connection any better? Or should I look into DSL?

Re: Hello

i wouldn't buy a house because the Internet is good....
but yes it is quite reliable. they have a knowledgable and caring staff who go out of their way to make sure you're up and running constantly...

I agree, dont buy a house cause of the connection

But yes, MetroCast has gotten a lot better over the years. Their speeds have gone up and service is more reliable.

I am in the Belmont system, and I intern at the Rochester office. Let me tell you, they work the asses off to keep the connections stable and reliable.

Thumbs up.

anonnie-muss?? Oh, how cute...

Dear anonnie-muss, sorry i didn't get back to you sooner. I'd say your response sounds very much like something
Shirley might say. Is that you Shirley?

Maybe you don't mind wasting $45 a month, but I do... Are you so out of touch with reality that you don't realize your being taken for a ride.

For what Metrocast is charging, there is no reason they can't at least provide that same quality of service as the next guy.

Well anonnie-muss, good luck hiding in the shadows :-0

Re: Come ON!

we still allow 2 cpe address's (public addresses) for each cable modem in the NH/ME region.

if you added/removed a device, you need to reboot your modem for this to take effect.

digital cable box

I hope this post is in the right forum... my folks just upgraded to digital basic cable at ECC. I helped put the new box in for them.

what is the rf bypass option?? I used the short "jumper" coax on the back of the box. Everything seems to work properly. Does this sound right?

I guess because it got so little use. And connforum was our home and did not want to spilt things up. In fact I was the last post in her in march of 05 before Odog posted this week.

But now that it is going to be closed down this seems like the best place.

More MetroCast news

From the Day:

Link

quote:
In less than two weeks, Eastern Connecticut Cable TV Inc. of Waterford will be owned and operated by Metrocast, a cable subsidiary of Harron Communications of Pennsylvania.

The state Department of Public Utility Control approved a franchise term of nine years for the new owner, one year shy of what Metrocast and Harron sought, but one year longer than the agency originally offered in a draft decision. The condition is that Metrocast must complete its 860-megahertz systemwide upgrade of Eastern’s cable lines by March of 2009.

An attorney for Metrocast and Harron assured the state utility regulator immediately following this morning’s decision that the nine-year franchise was acceptable, said agency spokeswoman Beryl Lyons.

The closing is scheduled for Sept. 1.

Harron owns and runs 109 cable franchises in the Eastern U.S. Eastern provides cable service to nine towns in Eastern Connecticut.
Hey, the closing is on my birthday!

So, what, then we'll be swimming in HD channels?
