Time Warner Cable

Time Warner Cable, you have the worst service ever. I haven’t had so many disconnects in a year since I was using my 33.6Kbps dial-up modem in 1997. It’s true that at times you connect at awesome speeds, letting me download things at up to 1Mbps, but it is not worth it when the other 90% of the time your service is either intermittent or non-existent.

I must also complain about the lack of accessibility to the wireless modems you hand out. They are easily hacked and I’m sure anyone that’s using one is at a security risk. Everyone knows that the password is the modem’s MAC address plus 14 more zeros at the end. Maybe this is part of the reason why my internet sucks too; only the gods could know how many of my neighbors are actually stealing my internet. If only I could hide my network, or limit the access by MAC addresses, or even just change the password to the network… If only…

Your prices as well are mediocre at best. You’re just lucky that you’ve cornered this market and there’s no Comcast High Speed Internet or Verizon FiOS in Manhattan. But, with service this bad combined with the rise of 3G/4G Mobile Broadband, I think your reign of terror will end soon enough. Unfortunately, I must suffer your wrath for at least one more month. Oh the horror. Time Warner Cable, you get two stars for at least connecting sometimes, and on rare occasions being blisteringly fast.
