More Bandwidth, Same Price

I called up TimeWarner today about my cable modem service. I’ve had it for a couple of years now and wanted to see if there was a better deal I should be on to save a few dollars. Turns out I was able to upgrade my service at no cost and get a 4x increase in download bandwidth. Yeah! So now I’ve got 3 mbps down and 768 kbps up.

I was doubly impressed that they had this done and in place in about an hour. I was able to do some speed tests to verify it, plus it actually feels a lot more zippy.


  1. Yeah, but it would have been nice if they would have told you that they had the service instead of you having to ask for it. Basicly they where over charging you for god knows how long. Mediacom (my ISP) upped my bandwidth and they were all about letting me know that I was getting better service for the same price. notes in my bill, ads on tv (to steal more new customers from Qwest DSL)

  2. Yeah, I was blissfully ignoring that fact right now. :-)
