Timewarner releases 50/20 mb Connection in San Antonio Texas

I was told by T4 San Antonio Division that by the end of the year San Antonio Austin Dayton and other cities are going to have 75/20 50/20 by the end of the year! or early 2014 SOCAL will get it by 2014
heres the video and me screaming in excitement why me *the lucky guy* gets to test out this new connection with out FTTH! if you need config file screen shots let me know i was told this is to compete with Other providers in my area such as Grande communications and Verizon Fios for dallas 75/5 will be upgraded to 75/20 and 50/20.....that is coming from what T4 told me here in San Antonio they cant release any other info right now because its such beta i am only paying 69.99 to test it out and discount on my cable services heres the video of me over excited about new upload speeds

Gee..Standard RR is still 10/1 on the neighbor islands of Hawaii. But Hawaii stupidly gave TWC a state wide franchise years ago. There is no competition here.

See this:
»www.fcc.gov/mb/facts/csgen.html

The TWC franchise doesn't prevent other companies from coming in. Federal law prohibits exclusive cable franchises. The others have to get franchise agreements too from the State of Hawaii Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs in your case, before building their network:
»hawaii.gov/dcca/catv/

Seems Hawaii approved a cable franchise for Hawaiian Telcom Services almost 2 years ago after TWC applied for its franchise renewal, which was just last week temporarily extended until May. TWC's franchise hasn't been finalized yet as both sides work out issues.

The lack of competition for many areas has nothing to do with franchise agreements. It has more to do with the economics of building a communications network costing tens or hundereds of millions of dollars in the hopes of providing essentially the same services already available to a percentage of an incumbent provider's customers willing to switch.

We've got 75/5 here now, so it will be nice to see 75/20 soon!

SanAntonioTX guy have posted some deceptive and fake stuff in the past.

I will believe this more when he posts a link to a speedtest results jpg and not an uploaded photo or video. So we know he just didn't fake it.

I don't know SanAntonioTx See Profile but to which posts are you referring to? Can you provide us with some links?

Faking a video is much harder than faking a jpg. I have no reason to doubt the authenticity of SanAntonioTx See Profile video unless you provide factual testimony of the contrary.

Besides it is widely known (I know this because my modem is using 4/8 channels) that TWC is currently activating 4 upstream channels so what could be the purpose for this? The logical answer is higher upload speeds.

With the information I have now I have no reason to doubt SanAntonioTx See Profile video.

Edit:
By carefully examining the video I can clearly see the ip address in one of the tests and it resolves to cpe-xx-xx-xx-xxx.satx.res.rr.com which is a TWI (road runner) residential account. So no deceit here.

look he faked the signal page as there is no TDMS modulation and those upstream channels are numbered wrong and spaced wrong and there is no way you can fit 4 6.4MHz channels in a 6MHz span

oh and you can't have a 6.4MHz channel centered at 40MHz as it would have an upper edge at 43.2MHz which is outside of the 42MHz at the top

my upstream channels look like they are made up but that is what TWC decided to use in North Texas for some reason. Other members on this forum can confirm that in North Texas the bonding has those 4 channels per node.

Dont think TWC needs all 4 bonded upstream channels to deliver 20Mbps upload

It would be more believable if the video would show the 4 bonded upstream channels.

Agreed perhaps how I said things earlier was a bit harsh but basically what happened before with the sketchy info was concern speed tests that was done for 4G Sprint LTE here in San Antonio.

This happened on the s4gru.com site that is run by a Sprint engineer and he provided great information to people about the Sprint 4G rollout.

Basically SanAntonioTX aka "ComputerMaster" on Youtube did speedtests that didn't seem to add up at all. For example, the Sprint engineer described speeds they were getting via field tests before the towers were opened up to customers.

Then ComputerMaster was claiming to get speeds much faster than the engineer said was even possible. Things just didn't seem to add up.
