Re: [TWC] [TWC] wants wants to charge me $25,000 for RR

I'm right down the road from you (in Milton), and I went through the same debacle with TWC. My road had no cable (although the cross-street did) since the developer never did the run. TWC quoted me $10,0000 to wire the road.

Go down to the down hall, and check the franchise agreement that TWC has with the town of Highland. In my case, they were contractually obligated to "build-out" service to any street that exceed a certain population density. Once we called that to their attention, they ran the cable and hooked us up.

In my case, the town was reasonably helpful, but don't expect them to have much leverage. After all, the franchise fees that TWN pays the town are not small change.

Good luck......
