That's nice!

This only works if they are offering a contracted price. I have inquired about lowering my rates. The wonderful CSRs are oh so not wanting to do that claiming lack of competition in the area so they cannot offer a competitive rate. In other words, I am going to pay $60 more a year for whatever "value" CV is going to provide. Lack of competition is great...for the providers.

Sad fact is, even if Time Warner and RCN would overlap (deploy) all of NYC it wouldn't matter.. it would take something like google for these incumbents to get off their ass and offer more for less.
