Anyone can recommend alternatives tio Time Warner for broadband connection in NYC - i'm fed up with TW customer service.
RCN in some areas...
Verizon FIOS. Do it. RCN sucks ass.
It looks like Time Warner has total monopoly on my area - my ass freedom of choice.
did they add few dollars to your bill for a modem?
Just stay calm...
FUCK YOU IN THE FACE TIME WARNER!
verizon is a piece of shit. they use fiberoptic cables, which means if your building is wired for it, you get a new cable stapled to your walls. plus you get like 5 huge boxes and transformers you have to hide or live with.
i enjoyed RCN, they have a partnership with TiVo—so you basically get a tivo dvr box. not a lot of equipment.
My sister has verizon and it's slow as ass. RCN was decent.
Time warner is fucking SLOW! I paid for an upgrade in internet to MEGA speed and it's still super shite.
Anyone try Clear, the wireless service?
i don't mind comcast/xfinity. mainly use my Apple TV anyways.
I'm moving to a new apartment next weekend and I think the only option is RCN. As a previous TWC customer, and having had FiOS in the past, am I going to be disappointed? It seems like RCN promises really fast default internet speeds, an HD TiVO, and bundles priced lower than the competition. What's the catch?
Also... fuck TWC. I had to return a cable box and modem after moving a few months ago, and they made me go to a fucking return center way uptown where I took a number (like at the deli counter), received serious blacktitude for asking a simple question, and waited a goddamn hour and a half just to hand over a fucking box.
- That's bullshit. They HAVE to give you the option to have someone come to your home. They'll try to get you to come in but you can always make the request.CyBrainX
- ...but you can always make the request.CyBrainX
- I tried, but they refused. It was such a waste of time. I was upset at their inefficiency.monospaced
^lol @ blacktitude
Man, no Fios in my area, just Verizon (7MB dl).
