Time Warner customers that are still legacy TWC read this

Recommended Posts

So I check out this app called Nextdoor (basically a community app for neighborhoods around you in a radius) and someone posted about some dirty practices that Spectrum is doing now.    This post got like 30 replies of people having the same issue.   Apparently if you're still a legacy TWC customer, they are limiting your broadband speeds by a ton.     So make sure you check your speed (don't use speedtest.net, as ISPs are now opening that up more so you think you're getting more than you are) but try fast.com which Netflix runs.      I checked this morning, and sure enough, it's happening.    Most people think this started right after net neutrality was killed in June.     Spectrum even sent out a bunch of techs to these folks' home before finally someone explained to them what the deal is.    

I guess I'm going to have to switch since as Spectrum probably knows, I have no other options in my area.      Really shady, the practice, and also not noticing customers about said changes.     Best believe I'm going to ask for a credit for the last month of getting less than 75% of the speed I should have got.

Really?  I tho uverse was all around Charlotte?  Well, that sucks.  Check how far away their line is.  5 years ago my neighborhood did not have a uverse so I called att and they said there is a line 500 yard from my house...  they pulled it for me lol.  It was amazing.

I used to play a lot of FPS video games and this speed gave me a clear advantage.  I saw people before they saw me.  I was reported for cheating a ton because they said I prefired before I saw them.  After Steam checked my internet speed, they just moved on.

If you could of just seen my video game network set up... I was proud of what I had and this year I quit video games after playing them for over 20 years.  I have 3 different routers that show 3 different locations.  Redirects for hackers and ddos attacks.  VPN switch on direct line that switches my ISP IP and my location every hour.  Now, I don’t care for any of it lol.  Still got crazy fast internet.

Weird. I've had Spectrum for 3 years now. Randomly bumped me from 100 to 200 MB/s and said that my bill wouldn't change. Haven't seen a price hike, but I did get throttled the other night (as did a buddy of mine who lives across the state). Streaming anything was completely impossible which is no good, because I use PS Vue for live TV and Netflix/Amazon/Youtube for binge watching shows and watching movies. Gaming was fine because my ping stuck at 34 ms as it usually does on bad days, then eventually returned to 14 ms. Some still say that is bad (it certainly isn't a 1-4 ping like I am sure some people here may get), but 14 is something I am used to.

Uverse is available in my area, but I've heard it's terrible for gaming. Can anyone confirm/dispel?
