Re: Dearest Time Warner I would be more than happy paying $140 a month for 1 GB/s symmetrical connection. However, if their contract didn't include things like "we can do whatever we want to do, like raise prices and such" without any way out other than eat an ETF, then I wouldn't go for it. I'm not stupid.
Besides, Marcus said what he said because he knows that most don't necessarily care about speed, but about price and TWC hasn't really been known for low prices.
"We will evaluate these integrals rigorously if we can, and non-rigorously if we must".
