I'm one of these people...
Time Warner won't run cable lines for internet/tv another half mile to the end of the power lines on our road which covers 12 homes, including mine. I went through a lot of trouble to get ahold of their engineering dept. and a local executive sent me a generic BS response in a letter that said it's too expensive. Really? half mile of cable to only support 12 people? F*** you prick. Next time I'm hunting up the road where the node box is I'll make sure to put a few rifle rounds in it.

Haha... man oh man you aren't alone in that statement. I think some of Windstream's DSL boxes have some holes in them in my area. How could you dare call 1.5Mb/394Kb broadband?! And 9 out of 10 times it's screwed up. I'm glad the FCC is finally doing something useful. But they need to hurry up before more and more telco/cable boxes end up with more holes in them.
