Re: Time-Warner for the Win!

said by Crookshanks:

There's a reason why Time Warner offers a 1.5/384 product for $20/mo in my market. They don't advertise it, it goes around via word-of-mouth, or comes from retentions, but it's been available for as long as I can remember.

That's an insane price for that slow of a speed. I was paying a mere $5 more than that nearly a decade ago.

....thus where the reality of the situation is.

It is advertised, on their site and their tv ads, and its 3 down and 1 up, for $20 per month. I called the "basic" plan. »www.timewarnercable.com/en/resid···ans.html

I've never seen Internet sold for a mere $5 a month, ever; not even dial-up. An online service called, "GEnie" ("General Electric network for information exchange") was once available via dial-up for $5 a month; but that was about twenty years ago, and not the TCP/IP Internet we now have. And definitely not 1.5 mb/s.

He didn't say $5/month. He said $5 more than "that": "that" being $20/month. Therefore, $25/month. The initial reading was unclear, though. I had to read it twice.

Yes, I see that now. Even so, 12 years ago there was no HSI provider offering service in the south S.F. Bay Area, that I know of, for under $40 a month; certainly not either of the incumbents.
