Knology, has roughly 234,000 customers predominately located in Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina and South Dakota.
great! knology can't even deploy docsis 3 to its customers right now. I'm sure this means the service will be further delayed.

Will be interesting to see who gets the tech first: CenLink bonded ADSL2+ or Suddenlink DOCSIS 3...
Re: Suddenlink purchase would be ironic, but probably a good thi ...seriously?
When you're somewhere close to BFE 25/2 or 20/2 is a godsend...heck, I'm using 12/2 right now and it's not bad. Parents are on 1.5/384 DSL and I'm the only one that notices that it's rather slow I think.
Re: Suddenlink purchase would be ironic, but probably a good thi I'll believe that when I see it...
Wooptie Doo! I lived in Casper, Wyoming for 8 months...in the actual city limits near the center of the city.
The fastest internet I could get was 7/256 and on a normal night I would be lucky to get 1.5/256.
I called to find out if I could get the speed boost crap they advertise on TV all the time and was told it is not available in Casper even though that was one of the areas where they had the most infrastructure.
The service was a nightmare and I am sure even if they are bought the service will not change. There is no competition there and you are either stuck with the local cableco or the telephone companies slow DSL. Good luck with the change I guess.
I am happy to be back in Florida with my Verizon FiOS and an average of 30/20 on my speeds.
slow I've used Bresnan at a friends in Laramie, and it was super slow during peaks hours. Less than 2 megs. He can't ever play Live with us because his pings and routing are garbage.
Suddenlink would bring the better management team They have done a lot cleaning up the crap of the industry. Outside of the Cox properties, everything they purchased was in dire need of repair. Generally, they have done it, and far better than most of their DSL-based competition. Sure, I wish for more (can't we all wish for more), but if I had to have a good team, there isn't a better operation than Suddenlink.
Suddenlink Suddenlink also offers service in areas of Ohio as well.
