Default Time Warner Cable Installation Fees

Hello,

My wife and I are moving to the Fort Mill area (next week!). My wife called Time Warner to setup cable and internet, and they told her that as of last week, they are charging $20 per outlet and a $25 installation fee. Has anyone else encountered these fees? We have moved a lot over the years, and this is the first time that we are paying for a cable installation. Does anyone have any advice for getting around these fees? From reading the forums, it seems that most people are not as happy with Comporium. I looked on Verizon's website, but I can't get FIOS in Indian Land. What can I do?

We just moved into a house in Indian Land last month and Time Warner was at the house yesterday to set up cable and internet. The only charge I incurred was the $62 for the first month. I have 8 cable outlets in the house and I tested 4 and all work fine. Not sure why they want to charge you so much unless maybe the house has no Time Warner equipment (mine already had a box on the exterior wall). Good Luck!

Default Fees

I just moved into an appartment in North Carolina and Time Warner Cable has just told me the same thing about the additional charges for each outlet. I can not believe this stuff. I know that once cable enters the house they can not charge any additional charges to watch the cable on from other outlets, but to charge to hook them up is down right criminal especially with the economy the way it is people are trying to cut down costs and cable rates are already to high. Now they want to charge some fee to hook up other outlets is completely wrong in my book.

Default Hookup Fees

I was looking into DirecTv as an option, but I have not called yet to price it or see if it's available in Indian Land. The woman on the phone told my wife that they are charging these installation fees because of the bad economy. Thanks a lot Time Warner! I'll post here if I have any luck with DirecTv once I speak with them.
