If that's true I'm getting a wifi 4g hotspot for less money a month and tell TWC to take their equipment and pile it up next to the MOUNTAIN of stuff I saw people returning after this channel blocking bullshit.
Its True

New rate takes effect Nov 1st.

According to the postcard go to: twc.com/approveddevices to see the list of approved modems that we can purchase instead of lease.

Are these easy to install does anyone know? I know nothing of installing this stuff.

You can buy a modem if you dont have phone service with them, If you have their phone your screwed. They are easy to install otherwise.

Yes, but didn't the postcard also say something is going down $3.95 per month?
Nothing going DOWN! TWC fees only go in one direction. More niggly ways to bleed customers drop by drop.

I canceled two months ago. I pay 255 a month, but i have it all, every channel, 2 of the best boxes, phone, security in the home etc. I canceled one month in advance- some dept called me back a week before i was going to cancel and offered me 200 a month for EVERYTHING, i took it

Their modem, they can't make a donut.

It's a Motorola, it wasn't even made for them by moto, its a cable modem.

Screwing in a cable and plugging in a RJ5 cable is easy, wow your so smart.

Here is the scumbag time warner scam.

These scumbags have moved to a speed amount per fee.

Say you get the 2MBPS, that is only transfer speed,
you are only getting 400-MBPS of movable data.UP/Down

Scumbags scamming its customers.

TV- you pay for cable but have to watch 60% commercials so the Scumbags can rape you.

I called them today about this. After being on hold for 56 minutes I was able to speak to someone. If you buy your own modem at a store, they will troubleshoot if u have a problem with it but they won't fix it! You have to pay to have it fixed! Ridiculous.
wow

Dear Inbreed loser. So you're too stupid to post the info, NO, you don't own mac, you're a welfare loser.

A personal computer is a personal computer you fing moron, the OS has nothing to do with what is called a personal computer. Just because the OS on one can be windows and one is OS X, doesn't mean anything welfare loser. Thousands of people run boot camp on a Mac.

Get back to your food stamps and your one dollar dell, or what ever piece of SHT you connect online, by the looks of your address on topix, your a total welfare loser using a cell phone.

when FIOS comes where??? Fios is done " coming " anywhere. Which means you have to sell your trailer and move to an area Fios services. BTW the government approved a deal that allowed Time Warner to team up with Verizon Wireless (they own Fios smarty pants). Now what??? I bet your one of those types that pays $150 for a cell plan and bitches about paying $160 fir digital cable, high speed internet and a home phone. YOU WOULDN'T A GOOD DEAL IF IT SLAPPED YOU IN THE FACE!
