We’re fed up.
The cable companies have subjected us to non-stop bullshit over the past 5 to 10 years, depending on your provider. Comcast, RCN, COX, Time Warner and all the others are constantly raising our fees, not offering enough channels in HD and this time around, trying to cap our Internet bandwidth. Time Warner Cable (TWC) has been experimenting with bandwidth metering for over a year now and the results have not been pretty. Though rumors have been swirling around that TWC will offer unlimited bandwidth for $150 a month, nothing has been confirmed.
So you would think that with all this heat on them, TWC would be open to discussing Net Neutrality with the FCC in an effort to appease its users. No dice. Look at this crap:
“Now is not the time, nor is this the appropriate proceeding, to engage in a debate about the need for net neutrality obligations,” two TWC lawyers warned the FCC on Monday. The discussion should stay strictly focused on broadband deployment, the company insists. “Debates in this proceeding about new net neutrality regulations would only divert attention from these important goals, delaying the distribution of funds while generating considerable contention when the Commission should instead be fostering a spirit of collaboration.”
You know what, Time Warner? Spare me your antics. I canceled with you awhile ago for a reason. I’m not coming back and hopefully others will cancel as well before you end up totally fucking them over.
