Lipstick on a pig Companies seem to think by rebranding that customers won't associate them to be as bad as they are. "Xfinity" is still Comcast, but Xfinity is a new term without years of hate/resentment attached to it. Cablevision has done this for awhile, calling their product "Interactive/Optimum" or I/O digital cable.

| Well, yeah but if you notice, Time Warner is going from "Roadrunner Standard" to "Time Warner Standard." Sounds a lot less of marketing lingo to me. They're basically going from saying "Hey guys, we're Time Warner Cable, and we sell a service called Roadrunner which runs over our HFC network and is meant to be super quick like the Roadrunner, so the Coyote, DSL doesn't catch up!" to "We're Time Warner Cable, we sell Internet, and here's what we call it"|
But I do get where you're going with it though! I'm sure the hatred will still be there when the bill comes.
Something stinks in here... Either Pepé Le Pew is "the new black" or... oh, it's just TWC.
Old News They've been talking about this before. They're only doing away with the RoadRunner and the Time Warner brand is they have to PAY for it now since they're not part of Time Warner, Inc.
It would be VERY hard to change everyone to a new email address though; would be smart just to keep those.
And this is another example of why customers should use a 3rd party service for email or their own domain.
Gee I wonder if this is finally coming about because of swelling up Insight, thus now owning any .rr.com using division, as Bright House docent use the RR name as far as I know.
Re: Gee BH does use .rr.com

These companies really think consumers are morons, don't they?
Re: Typical company BS! TWC is no longer a monopoly. They have competition.

TWC is no longer a monopoly. They have competition.
You're apparently in Toledo. Perhaps you have options. Many people don't. Nor is the definition of a monopoly a company with no competition.
Re: Typical company BS! you don't need U-Verse to get HSI.
You can easily order DSL without getting U-Verse. Would you like a list of DSL companies to order that from? Maybe a list of other providers including Earthlink that offers Cable modem services in TWC service areas. Maybe the number to your local Clear office to get service with them? Also there is LTE with Cellco.
Those are options. Just because you think that TWC is your only option due to you wanting to have Tivo does not work with your HSI claim.
Re: Typical company BS! Yes, I can order DSL or wireless, get lower speeds, less reliability (IMHO, but that's subjective), pay a bit less for that, more for my TV service with the bundle gone, and come out with less for about the same price. Sign me up.
The whole package (TV + HSI) is what matters, not one or the other. The Tivo issue is relevant simply because it limits the TV choices to maintain that investment to one company, which affects the pricing for the combination of the two.
Is it a self-inflicted monopoly? Sure, in a sense. But Verizon's FIOS works with cable cards, so there are markets where that competition exists, and this isn't one.

Company has a lousy track record satisfying customers. Do they lift a finger to improve? NO! Instead they simply change their name and continue to be a crap company with a new name!

Wideband I think it's definitely a good move for them to eliminate the "Wideband" brand. I'm pretty technically inclined and stay up on the news pretty well, but admittedly didn't know what the hell "Wideband" was the first time I started seeing TV commercials for it. Eventually I just made the assumption it was their reference to DOCSIS 3.0, which in all honesty none of their average consumers would know the first thing about.
In relative terms life is shorter than the blink of an eye. Remember that each and every day because in the end it's not about what you've done but how you've lived.
Whatever They can call themselves whatever they want, I'll still hate their guts.
