Are there any Pinellas county Wow! users out there? I have read here where Wow! has upgraded Knology's network from the old GTE Americast days to provide good competition to the BHN network out there. Can Dan provide any details? My wife and I have switched out BHN cable for DirecTV, and are looking to ditch the Internet service.
Some upgrades to the internet services in Pinellas have already been completed, and we are now offering a 15mbps download service, up from the previous limit of 7mbps. Major upgrades for the Pinellas market will continue throughout this year and probably the next to transition to an all digital lineup with more HD channels and even faster internet packages once we're sure it can be supported. These upgrades take time, so it won't all come quickly, but Pinellas area customers will see a lot of changes over the next year or two.
Thanks, Dan. I for one welcome some new competition in the broadband arena, especially since Verizon bailed on rolling FIOS out to most of southern Pinellas County. My friends in Tampa are getting much better deals from Verizon (Cable, Internet, and Phone for like $80 +tax). My wife and I had basic HD-DVR service and 10Mbps Road Runner and our bill was like $130.
