Right there with you. They've been heavily advertising in my
neighborhood for the past couple of months. So I called them up and
asked what they could offer me. The only thing I want or need is
internet, yet they won't offer that at anywhere near the price and speed
that TWC does.
I asked "Can you offer me 10 down and 1 up for $45 or better? TWC
does." ... pause ... "I can't offer anything like that."
"Thank you for your time. Goodbye."
