Do you want the availability of higher upload speeds than 5 Mbps? Then you want Comcast, now TWC. I've had both, and while both have their issues, at least Comcast invests heavily in infrastructure. TWC? Not quite as much.
Re: Acquired By Charter?
said by iansltx:The only source I could find listing speeds and prices for TWC NYC is »www.timewarnercablespecial.com/N···net.html. Based on this I see that it is Standard not Basic that matches the CV standard tier (there are two slower/cheaper tiers of which Basic at 3/1 is the faster). TWC's Standard is the same price but MUCH slower on the upload (1 Mbps vs. CV's 5Mbps [after the recent speed bump]). There are then 2 faster intermediate tiers before you get to TWC Ultimate (50/5) that is their Boost+ equivalent which is slower on the upload and more expensive than B+.
Not quite, but close. CV's basic tier is 15/5. Same download as TWC basic, but as much upload as its top tier. CV's midrange tier, however, matches TWC on downloads for its highest tier (outside Dallas and KC) and runs circles around it on uploads.
Not that I don't agree with you. But let's keep our facts straight
Talking about the prices, the rates on that page are 12 month intro prices with the REAL prices not shown and thus even higher than CV.
Thus I think that my comment about the speed downgrade and price increase result if TWC subsumed CV were accurate. Now that I see numbers, I think I was understating the bad news about the result. If you have CV Ultra (a non existent equivalent tier on TWC at least in NYC) or if/when the claimed B+ and U speed bumps occur the situation becomes even worse.

switch to a reseller and get better services.
Despises any post with strings.
Noooo!!! Stay away from Cablevision!! We are fine without TW's nickel and dime BS! Modem rental fee?? No thanks.
The reason for this is obvious... The reason for this is obvious; Cablevision provides fairly decent service, which makes TWC look bad. So they need to buy Cablevision and turn it into crap in order to ensure that all cable ISPs suck equally as much.
