The FTC has officially signed off on Time Warner Cable's planned acquisition of Insight Communications. Most of the companies interested in acquiring Insight Communications had dropped out of the bidding process, turned off by Insight owner Carlyle Group's steep $4 billion price tag. Waiting paid off for Time Warner Cable, who was among the first to balk at the price -- but was ultimately able to grab Insight for $3 billion. The deal gives Time Warner Cable an additional 750,000 broadband, voice and TV customers in Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio. Neither Time Warner Cable or Insight are giving a timeline or list of potential changes (programming, pricing, etc.) but users can keep tabs on our Insight Communications and Time Warner Cable/Roadrunner forums for the latest news.
Time Warner's HD channel lineup in Ohio is pretty good. Now that they've rolled out DOCSIS 3.0 they've got acceptable speeds. In many markets they don't seem to be re-encoding HD channels to a lower bitrate. And, they still have no bandwidth caps.
All around, a much better result than the alternative. Comcap could have bought Insight and everyone would be subjected to bandwidth caps and shitty re-compressed channels.

ARGONAUT Have a nice day. Premium join:2006-01-24 New Albany, IN kudos:1
Insight chose to go with RR here in columbus becuase it was a well known brand when they wanted to add Internet to their lineup ask RR Rick or Comcast Rick or something like that if your want the gorey details about that.
The hodgepodge was due to the expantion of Columbus over time, hell even WOW was expanded from what then inherited from Ameritech's Americast.
I'm actualy suprised TWC bought us since were a Motorola system and they are a SA/Cisco system here, should be interesting to see how the integrate that. I would of thought WOW would of been snapped up by TWC since same system and all.
In KY, I've had Insight for a year or so and love it. Its reliable and most importantly there's on caps. Lets hope nothing changes when TWC moves in :|
One thing I wont miss is the bi-daily spam mail insight puts in my mailbox trying to get me to sign up to their TV packages. They even have other companies mask the mail as something formal and important, then when I open the envelope it's just the same old Insight ad trying to get me to sign up to TV. Kinda funny actually.
