One reason I just dumped my cable service and am using online content and bunny ears for TV service. Can't say I miss it. My personal favorite is the cost of the remote is going up by $.04. Really, the $4.00 remote that you've used for years went up in price...yeah right. If Roadrunner wasn't the fastest service I can get right now, I would have ditched TWC completely, hopefully I can in the coming years.

Yeah, when FiOS and ClearWire are available at their top speeds and introduce some competition into our market, I think I'll be done with TWC. I've been without cable TV for years, relying on the internet, Netflix and OTA broadcast TV (total cost about $60/month), and the thousands I've saved are just gravy compared to the fact that I no longer need to call TWC every month to ask why my TV has no signal (I'm really not sure why their RR is more dependable; I've had no outages in more than a year and avg. DL speeds around 12mbps). I own the modem, so no "leasing" cost either. Bottom line - they need real competition. We need FiOS.

What other choices are there that is faster than time warner? I'd like to switch as well.

Internet? None that I'm aware of. I think Windstream and some other DSL providers advertise 10+mbps DL speeds for some choices, but you shouldn't expect it to perform as well as advertised. FiOS will provide faster speeds, as well as TV programming, but so far Verizon has refused to disclose plans for implementation in this region (unless there's been a recent change). ClearWire, after rolling out WiMAX service, will have the potential for faster speeds, but will for the foreseeable future limit speeds to below 10mbps (from what I've read). For TV, there's no other option, unless you're a satellite cheerleader. I've tried both DirecTV and Dish Network and wouldn't wish those experiences on my worst enemy. Clearly, many satellite subscribers are not as picky about audio or video quality and seem very pleased with their service.

I do Netflix. $18.00 a month for "unlimited" dvds (3 at a time). Watch TV shows on dvd without commercials and you can watch the whole season in a week if you want. Also, you can get a Roku Player ($99.00) and stream unlimited movies to your TV for no additional subscription cost.
We love it.

As cheap as the PS3 is right now, I'd recommend it over the Roku. I bought mine years ago primarily as a gaming console, yet I probably use it for gaming just 5% of the time.

Another unhappy TWC customer here. My internet/cable goes in and out frequently.....very unreliable sometimes. The TV seems to have a good signal but the internet leaves much to be desired...I would post more if it were more reliable. Had the cable guys out here several times; they checked the connection, "boosted the signal" (LOL...yeah right )", put in new connections, etc. I got the free modem they handed out and still have issues here. We have told them several times that we probably just need a whole new cable changed, but it seems they keep going the cheap route. I pay over $110/month for cable/TV/internet and use Vonage phone line on it. I wish he had other, more reliable options. If I had a home-based business using the internet, I would be out of business because my cable/internet is unreliable.

I am assuming AT&T U-verse is not available in the area? Their service is superior, in every way, to cable.

U-verse, like FiOS, is not available in the area. I think Raleigh has it, though.
