Comment: Time Warner in NC is actually the devil (Score 1) 198

Time Warner in NC typically secures their monopoly in NC by paying a bribe to the local governments in the form of an 'access fee'. Now some of those cities and towns are suffering the backlash of unrestricted price gouging from Time Warner. Consumers are in open revolt as service pricing in NC seems to jump >10% every 6 months and service quality has fallen off a cliff PARTICULARLY on the internet side of the service. It's third world awful and getting worse. Days long outages where the highest level of technical support's answer is, and I quote "I don't know and there's nothing anyone can do about it" unquote (actual answer I got from L2's management yesterday) have become routine. Billing 'errors' that result in huger overages are rampant and record keeping is nonexistent eg, Time Warner's new excuse is to claim they can't/won't address problems because it's and again I quote "your modem" unquote. Which is isn't because we ALL had to stand in line at the local 'service center' for up to FOUR Hours to get it handed to us BY Time Warner.

So here's what has to happen. Every day, every single day, snatch up one management or higher Time Warner employee and crucify and set them on fire and put it on YouTube. Every day, grab one and kill them until either they change their business model or they run out of people.

Phones suck in ways that make them suck, not in any specific way by design. Quality is shit because it's shit borne of laziness and cheapness and not the extra amount of money they'd have to spend planning out their shittiness. Cheap shit phones have no reason to try to upsell you because those are two different markets. The shit market and the poser market. And never the twain shall meet.

What IS interesting though is the razor thin differences in the quality between the shit phones and the more expensive phones. More expensive phones spend all their money on 'me too' features. Not quality.

The sooner you fall behind, the more time you have to catch up.
