Re: TWC lowered my rate too

said by elios:

amazing what some real competition will do

Yea, for what TW is missing out on in that area, the costs are being passed on to other divisions and customers in the rest of the country.

They could. Because they would have to. The company would be unprofitable if the applied these rates across the country.

If they were losing money in Kansas City, they'd be violating anti-trust laws doing that. It's exactly what Standard Oil did 100 years ago. I imagine they are not losing money, even at the discount.

As stated in quarterly earnings to stockholders TW's broadband service operates at 90%+ profit. They are not losing money. Their gravy train is still there just one boxcar shorter.

They no doubt are. It probably covers programming costs, but labor and other expenses probably push them over the edge.

Plenty of ISPs serve markets that are unprofitable either due to low uptake or being too small of a market. Anti-trust or not, they still do. The FCC is even trying to pay them to do so.

They do not operate a 90%+ profit. In fact just released today their profits were much lower than expected and the stock price has taken a hit.

On their internet not their TV service.
