re: Anyone use Time Warner Cable? Thoughts?

I'm currently on AT&T Uverse, and the service is starting to chap my hide, frankly. My provided modem rebooted on its own daily, and typically at the most inconvenient times. Today there's an area-wide outage. On top of that my internet speed is pretty slow (allegedly 20mbps, but 2.7mbps in practice).

Time Warner Cable offers 300mbps service in my area. However, I don't know what their service is like. How are the ping times? Is the service variable based on who else in your neighborhood is online? How's customer service?

If anyone has any opinion, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks!

I ussed to have Time Warner back in the day and I didn't have an issue with it that often. I have also had AT&T UVerse and if I had to choose I would go with Time Warner. AT&T cut out all the time when I had it too.

re: Anyone use Time Warner Cable? Thoughts?

i have 300mbps Time warner cable and even though its fast; there is still the "time zone" that the speed is significantly slower. However, at this speed I can have 8 different computers running at once with no delays. I needed faster modem and I have had maybe just one downtime since 2 years of service with this speed. I love the speed; and I probably can't go slower than this because I'm too spoiled. Its def better than wifi speed for sure. For gaming my ping is always at 20s-30s at the most. Its ultra fast. The only thing I don't have is faster computer... which I am hoping to upgrade to a new computer with nvidia gtx graphic card some day.

re: Anyone use Time Warner Cable? Thoughts?

Cool sounds like it would definitely be an upgrade. The ping times are the same or better than what I'm getting on uverse, so really nothing to stick around for. Thanks for the feedback!

re: Anyone use Time Warner Cable? Thoughts?

So I got TWC installed and I went from 2/20mbps up/download to 20/352mbps up/download. I see 15ms ping. All that and I'm paying about the same as before. I'm pretty happy with the switch so far!

I just downloaded the Public Test Server version of The Division... 46GB... took about 15 minutes. I watched American Ninja Warrior while it downloaded. I'm very happy with that. Before that's something I'd queue up overnight.

Just move to Allen. We could be neighbors. It'd be awesome.

Just get me a really good job doing nothing while making obscene amounts of money.

Seriously, If I was your neighbor, we'd get nothing in life done. Games, man. Games.

OK, Time Warner is now named Spectrum, so waiting for the other shoe to drop.

It's just a merger between 3 companies... probably so they can compete with the likes of Verizon and AT&T. I'm not expecting much to change on our end (for better or worse), but I guess we'll have to wait and see.
