Re: Why Timewarner Why ? WHY!?
said by cramer:Maybe in NC, but certainly not in CA and I'm sure alot of other places. Some of the same network, not the same cable, not the same technology, and absolutely not TWTC.
I'm sure TWC will gladly give you a 1Gbps connection to your house if you are willing to pay for it too.
HAH. No, no they won't. TWC "BC" is EXACTLY the same as TWC "Residential" -- same network, same cable, same technology. The metro-ethernet connections are provided by Time Warner Telecom
(aka TWTC.) While they share "TW" in their names, they are independent companies.
This is probably true in any area that isn't "legacy" TWC. So if the area was previously Adelphia or Comcast, TWTC has little, if any infrastructure, co-mingled with the existing cable infrastructure.
If it's important, back it up... twice. Even 99.999% availability isn't enough sometimes.
