After reading far too many stories like this about Time-Warner’s internet policies, we’re dropping them for AT&T DSL. Now, I have no problem with companies earning good profits, but the low bandwidth caps along with the fact that their bandwidth costs are so low, pushes me over the edge. Now their blackmail attempts by withholding DOCSIS 3.0 make it an even easier decision.
We ended up with AT&T DSL….for now….my $35 6Mbps package is ~$10 cheaper than TWC, but I’m only getting about 2 Mbps down right now. Not too happy about that. It looks like we can also do AT&T U-Verse for much faster speeds (without actually getting the TV service), so we might upgrade to that later on. However, if we can only get 1/3 of our download speed now, I’m not sure if the U-Verse DSL will be that much better.
