We in the state of NC hope so much that Comcast takes over TWC that has let there systems go to crap in this state due to many laws they made to prevent anyone from entering the market. We are a tech center yet the best speed we can get are 50/5 for over 100 a month and good luck getting all that speed and for it to work more than a week.
Comcast is far better even in places you can't even get DSL. They know how to keep up a network unlike TWC.
What is the use of Comcast knowing how to "upgrade" and maintain their network? They can offer all the speed in the world but it would be useless with the caps. Anybody can create a network where you can download as fast light (fiber optics) but with a cap, it's useless. Like the celluar networks, they are upgrading their download speeds (network) but with a 2GB cap or what ever, what's the use a HD movie is about 2 GB...
Time warner cable throttles Netflix and youtube like mad. Look up the word "throtting" on youtube and guess who is at the top of that list. They may not say they have a cap, but they do. Comcast only has a softcap that they don't even really enforce but at lest they tell you how it is than flat out lie about every thing.
They think 60% packet loss is fine and that 1/3rd of the up to speed is also fine and unless you sue them they say nope no fix for you.
If a 300GB soft cap is the cost of getting an ISP who throttles more than any other, who is slower, who is more outdated and could care less about most on there network than so be it. Because no one else can enter this state thanks to it's anti-broad band bill. (Kid you not that's what it is called)
The RDU is a freaking joke internet wise to those moving from up north with Comcast or Verizon fios. If any ISP were "useless" it's not Comcast. TWC needs to pay for it's lack of leader ship and this buy out will throw out that bad leader ship that has lead to a loss of over 200k subs.
That's not even to say they cost more than Comcast does anyway you look at it.
