Re: Why Timewarner Why ? WHY!?

I'm happy to have 50/5 unlimited available, but I do think this tier needs more upload. I strongly suspect that's a work in progress, NYC is already seeing signs of upstream bonding.

TWC has been lax on upgrading over the last couple years, no doubt about it. Even Charter got on DOCSIS 3 before TWC. I think their management was sulking when their attempt at brutally low caps blew up in their face. Now they're making good progress on the DOCSIS 3 rollout. Once done, they'll be able to offer faster speeds. Slow progress, yes, but we're moving in the right direction now.

As for Verizon FiOS - its great, but it's far from being available everywhere. Verizon didn't even roll it out fully in the city of Los Angeles. AT&T is not going to be in a position to beat even 50/5 for a long time. There's not a lot of competitive pressure for TW to increase speeds outside of FiOS's limited footprint.
