Re: [TWC] New Modem Lease Fee NYC

Its not as simple as walking in a getting a Docsis 3.0 modem. At least when i tried in Queens Center mall, they said that my service wasn't Docsis 3.0, and if I wanted it, I would have to upgrade to faster service. All these fees are ridiculous. I'm running near $200 for triple play. Its about time people start to switch to whatever else, its just the fact that they know most of us in NYC have no other option than them and DSL.

The bulk of your bill would be TV and probably Digital Phone. I don't get why people sign up with their Digital phone when its priced well over anything else. MagicJack is WAAAAAY cheaper and does NOT require the use of your computer any longer, Vonage is cheaper than Digital Phone, indie VoIP in general are cheaper than DP. Granted DP uses QOS over the network, as it should, but if you're on Price then id get rid of DP. STBs are the next bulk of the bill.


this is also happening here where i live (irving, tx)

and i also felt a damn earthquake yesterday!!!

But MagicJack and Vonage do not permit the usage of a fax Machine. Additionally, you cannot use Magic Jack or Vonage with a security service (e.g. ADT).

TWC DP supports both quite nicely.

DP & RR Standard comes out to around $60 a month. Gonna take out the cable, keep them, and go to DirecTV

Uh oh. When is Los Angeles/L.A. going to get this leased cable modem fee? I thought old subscribers won't get it.

Vonage does support fax machines. Also that ADT system won't work when you lose power or your local CMTS is down. So no point in having it connected to DP. If you rely on an alarm you should have it at least hooked up to a landline or use a total or cell back up solution.

Speaking of the devil. It appeared in today's paper monthly bill.
