Re: [TWC] New Modem Lease Fee NYC

said by hottboiinnc:

Why does everyone on here assume that you work for the company that you comment on? So one would assume you work for Verizon or another company since you hate TWC?

Just wondering why? Nothing wrong with that, so you were just scoring browny points?

And obver subscribed is how the internet is built and its not outdated networks or equipment. It needs a node split which is easier said than done.

You actually confirmed TWC over subscribed their nodes and that's what happens in NYC. And you actually know the solution to NYC's problem but TWC refuse to fix it. Answer: The only competition is DSL.

Other areas have those problems as well. And if you read what I posted earlier, those problems are localized and not a national problem. You won't have those problems fixed until TWC gets their act together and merges their regions into 1 actual company instead of 10+ companies

No, that is not the problem in NYC, they totally neglected NYC. The best solution was FIOS. Since they heard FIOS's footsteps they started upgrading their infrastructures here. They were complacently enjoying DSL's competitions before but not now.

D3 "forced" I dont' see how they were forced to deploy D3 or even show they were going forward. And why should the modems have a limit on when they are paid? They are still supporting and replacing said modems that are out in the field. you want TWC to support those modems and replace them at any time, then the fees should still apply.

They were forced to upgrade to D3 because every cable ISP were already half way done with their upgrades. Besides, FIOS arrived in NYC, they do not want to be run over. If you have not sensed, TWC wants all subscribers to move to D3 ASAP. By applying $3.95/mo by Oct. 15, they are forcing us to either buy our D3 modem or stay and ask them for a D3 modem. I will not be surprise by Oct. 15, if you go to a local TWC office near you and ask to exchange your D2 modem to a D3 one they'll give it to you. If you get my drift they are not interested with the old modem's maintenance, they want to replace them.

As far as FiOS gaining customers, is not totally true. Those same customers that are moving to FiOS are moving back to the cable companies. FiOS numbers actuallys how that. Why do you think they're not expanding any farther. Their hard numbers show that people are not switching like they would have liked. People hate change and people will just pay the modem fee and move on. Its easier to do it that way than to swith providers, and spend an entire day waiting for your FiOS to be installed. And you'll have that more and more with people still using their ISP email addresses. That is the #2 reason people don't change ISPs after people don't like change.

You seems to know very much about FIOS even if there is none in your area.»www.fiosfinder.com/availability/···ohio.php Is it the reason you have a bad taste in your mouth?

I didn't confirm anything. It's knowing how the Internet works and how businesses make money. DSL also is over subscribed at the DSLAM, it's not a dedicated connection like the telcos and ISPs want you to believe. And do you know how long it takes for a node to be split? It's just not over night as you may think.

again, the network was already upgraded. splitting nodes and increasing speeds is not really upgrading. It's simple things that are done.

what another ISP does in their region,ie Comcast, does NOT affect TWC in anyway, they could careless if they offer MetroFiber to their customers, TWC doesn't have to nor cares.

[Actually I don't live in Cleveland. And no it doesn't. I can get FTTH if i want it. The same as anyone else. and if you look. CLE is actually an AT&T area not Frontier. Ohio knew for YEARS GTE/VZ was going to offload them. It was only a matter of time. VZ even had their paper work ready to shut the network down if the Frontier sale did not go through. Which is 100% legal for them to do so.

And you can know a lot about FiOS too if you read their numbers. Also when you have the choice of 3+ cable providers like in Cleveland you will see that nobody really changes. And actually overbuilding costs MORE than what anyone wants to pay. Why do you think RCN isn't expanding. WOW is only expanding in areas where they were already serving a few streets- such as in University Heights where I used to live.

You seems to have an agenda. Why don't you tell us what you got. Who knows, maybe its better than TWC.

My agenda is currently not open to the public except obtaining data and other information. As you can see that on a number of other boards on DSLR, including in Canada.

You mean to say you were all over the places but you can not reveal what you represent? Well then do not expect us to treat you seriously.
How would we know if you were just pulling our legs?

I can tell you that in terms of coverage area the company I represent is the largest. That includes access to TWC, Comcast, Charter, Frontier, Fairpoint, Cox, AT&T/SBC/BellSouth, ABi, CentLink, Covad/MegaPath, Cinci Bell, Bell Canada, and Rogers Communications and several wireless companies for 4G access- both LTE and Wimax, and much more. I also can tell you the company will be launching no frills Internet- no emails, webspace, news groups, etc. Just a simple connection and that is it. The company is based in Ohio and operates on 10 different Tier 1 backbones including AT&T, One Community, Independent Fiber Networks, TWC, Verizon Business, and much more.

Also by March of 2013 the company also will be launching a national IPTV product, service will be available to not only my employer's customers but also to customers of other ISPs. Next week is when customers will be able to be signed up, but I will tell you this, the prices on average maybe more than going direct to the last mile owner (due to wholesaling, etc), but no caps will be imposed, NEVER. The connections will be 100% unlimited and will stay that way (unless on a 4g or connection in Canada).

And if you want more information, as always, you and anyone else is welcome to PM me.

Okay, this is now marketing. Please start another thread stating who you represent so that you don't hijack this very interesting thread-$3.95 monthly modem rental.

I am not marketing in this thread. So thus no its not marketing. I'm not selling anything in this thread. I was talking about the modem fee which I should and do have the right to do. You asked what I was doing and I answered the question. YOU are the one that brought that on. and again I will not tell you who I work for.

You bang in yourself to a TWC forum pretending to have an interest in the topic but eventually we find out your motive. Please move on, it stinks. All we want is to discuss TWC's modem rental. If you want to continue your discussion open a new thread, that is if the moderator allows you.

Weather I care or not, does not matter. And as I have said, I have no real motive. I was stating what I know and some have admitted they were not aware of what I have stated- such as Hob not knowing that TWC MidOhio does not allow for 2 modems.

So again, NO I will not move on and you are free to discuss the modem rental fee and I will be free to comment when I think I should inform someone of something. So you can go about your business and stop replying back to my posts trying to make my comments out to be something they are not, and never were. You ask and you got so move on. And you don't want to discuss anything, but my businesss on here and claim I work for TWC.

Isn't the 6141 just a D3 modem and 6580 a D3 gateway with modem, router and wifi built-in?
