some common sense

as you can imagine gremlins are creeping into the system in Brooklyn resulting in service calls to happen. this is not as smart as paying employees slightly more and having the company split nodes properly & re-provision the network cheaper in the long run rather than have 12 service calls & truck rolls happen before they come to that conclusion. at a minimum CV can spare $1.75/hour more for entry level-- just make sure the truck rolls are justified first.

I was wondering.. when they bump your upstream from 22mhz to 32mhz does that mean they split a node because of overprovisioning, getting ready for docsis 3.1 or something else?

no, it means they raised it to a higher frequency because 22mhz is affected by noise much worse than 32 mhz is.

Hey I don't trust cablevision at all. Their execs get paid really well and the workers don't and those nice Exec's are bailing out then there's something really wrong with CV

It could mean that, if everyone went from 22MHz to 32 MHz, but more likely it's just regular balancing that happens automatically.

Right you are Eddy!

Sweet revenge for those workers who were WRONGLY fired because they were exercising their union rights.

This isn't true of just CV but of so many businesses in general today.

These brASS tacks are rewarded with a king's ransom WHETHER THEY PERFORM OR NOT, while the rank and file are increasingly paid less and less for more work and are often fired "just because" even if they perform excellently .
