So we used to have Eastern Cable many years ago.
We got rid of them about 3 years ago.
I called them today... still Their best package in channels is 50 dollars or so for 52 channels.
Reluctantly had to get set up with DirecTV 210 channels or whatever with HD DVR for 54 a month after rebate.
Easterns BEST TOP OF THE LINE internet is 2 Mbps for 50 dollars.
I have AT&T DSL 6 Mbps speed for roughly half the price. or 25, for those who can't do math.
I'm an avid gamer and I really only want NewWave for their internet. I contacted their office today and they won't service my area because it's Eastern Territory per se.
I know a lot of people hate NewWave, but your options are limited. they bought out Time Warner so in a few months. I think the people in the keavy area will be eligible to receive this.
So I asked how is it ever possible that we can get NewWave service. and It seems the only way you are going to get it if you live out off Ohler road/ or 830ish out by lynn camp is to force them to go out of business.
I am not saying boycott, but here to help people make better informed decisions on what they are overpaying. but I wanted to inform you of the prices, and ridiculous amount that Eastern Cable overcharges.
If this thread gets deleted I will make it again. I don't care. Just stating the obvious facts, and after having Eastern previously for 6 years of terrible service,(don't get me started on how many times the internet disconnected) I hate to be told basically if I want the best internet / phone/cable packages in the area, that I would literally have to sell my house and move somewhere within their limits.
Anyways. got my ranting out for the night. good night

I regrettably pay for this service as it is the only service available at my house. I heard that they did not get as many subscribers as they wanted so thats why they never plan to upgrade the service. If you overcharge for terrible service thats what happens. If anyone has another choice they will take it.

Overpriced and as you said it disconnects all the time.

I live in the same area and am having the same issue. While they may offer "52 channels" they fail to tell you that many of those channels are the same or something that is completely useless (for example the "upgraded" horse racing channel.) Really?! My husband and I absolutely refused to pay the ridiculous amount and chose to go with satellite instead. That solved one problem; however, we still had to stick with them as an internet service provider. I have tried every single company that I can think of but since we are in Eastern Cables territory no one can offer us service. Now, my last resort is satellite internet (which I am researching now.) I feel like we are being bullied and punished by this sorry excuse of a company!
Have you heard anything about us being in an "upgrade area?" I recently heard from a friend that Eastern offers discounted prices to other areas. However, since we are in the "upgrade area" our service is priced higher?
Either way something needs to be done about this!!

I live on 830 and its a crime what eastern cable puts out for a product. That is why every other house has a satellite. Eastern needs to pony up some money and upgrade their service but it will never happen. As long as people pay them for the crap they sell, they will never change. No need to buy a nice HD TV because the picture will look horrible and. I have had dish for 10 years and love it but would rather keep my business local. I do have AT&T DSL and the speed is fine. I can stream movies and play any game online. Bottom line is that Eastern Cable has to be the worst service in the US.

eastern should have taken the offer by barbourville city utilities, and sold the entire business. but that would keep the eubank's from having that monthly income

anyone in eastern cable's area needs to have a brain scan if they have not moved to satellite service yet.

i'd rather pay $100 a month to have 5x as many channels as eatern. hell, i've get more movie channels than they have channels period.

And the sad thing is that they have no incentive to improve their service. In alot of places it is either use them or dial up.

Just found out this morning they have dropped AMC. One of the top tv shows The Walking Dead. Stated the rates were to expensive to renew. They dont even care what their customers really want.
Super mad

Walking dead is the only reason I pay for their stupid cable. I was set for on Sunday and the channel didnt work now it completely gone. How can you drop a channel when you only have like fifty. Thinking I need to switch to dish.

They have the worst quality internet service I have ever had the misfortune of using and at 64.99 month is an absolute joke.
Hey Eastern Cable

Please sell out to Time Warner or pretty much any other cable provider. Your service and quality are abysmal. 2 meg internet? Is this 1998? And your cable TV is a joke. Way too expensive for horrible service and quality.
