Time Warner Sucks


Recommended Posts

Hello guys im back, I moved to a new house and I wanted to show u what I have to go through, I moved about 5 blocks from Time Warner's headquarters and its gonna take them a week to reinstall my service can u believe it? What sucks is that I am an existing member and i live so close to them and its going to take them a week to come to my house and set everything up again x

For now look what I have to use

.. Download Stats ..

Connection is 41 Kbps about 0 Mbps (tested with 386 KB)

Download Speed is 5 KB/s

Tested From http//www.testmy.net/

Bottom Line 1 times faster than 56K you can download 1MB in 204.8 second(s)

Validation Link http//testmy.net/cgi-bin/get.cgi?Test_ID=KKLY9DAFQ

From my normal 3000/384 plan all because they monopolize my area and theyre too damn lazy to come here in a day or so.

I already had cable internet in my other house, Earthlink, and now that I moved they said they have to come to this house and give me cable again, what doesnt make sense is that I already have a digital box and their cable modem, so why cant they just send a signal to my house from their headquarters (which is 5 blocks away) instead and not this crap that I have to wait a week for them to come and give me my service.

AOL broadband - comcast - RR- earthlink - internet junction - light speed - and a few others i cant think of all use the same backbones/ lines. Their policies are different, but their all the same 'highway' .

And no.. just because he lives closer doesnt mean hell get better speeds. Mabey a shorter hop.. but not noticable speed increase because of the cap. (most likely)

Yeah, in my area Earthlink is under Time Warner, but they also use Comcast and other companies, and I dont know if ill get faster speeds since im so much closer, that will be cool but not likely to happen since I have cable and not dsl. I'll just have to wait for Tuesday to see what happens. Only thing I can say right now is at least I can use Earthlink's dial up service for now, so I have some sort of internet, though dial up sucks, its better than nothing.
