We used to have Charter Com. here and they did suck.. support was horrible. Knew two people that worked local tier one, yank-your-chain and waste your time, support for them, and happened to know exactly where the main support center in Louisville, KY was because I passed right by it while I was there, many times.
Dropped signals, IP addy changes as often as 1 minute apart... got into the "modem" and printed out THEIR modem log for the recent events and took 5 pages of events in to show manager what had been happening.. 3 months free; she had NO idea wtf any of it meant.  One support guy got mouthy on the phone.. until I told him where he was sitting in Louisville, including interstate, exit name AND #, street name and left turn into parking lot.. going to stop by and have a face to face chat over some hot coffee after I grab some fresh Krispy Kreams off Bardstown Road... 2 months free. LMAO Neighbor (one of the two that worked support) said it was rare to get a single free month from them.
Another moron said MY computer was controlling all the IP address assignments for their network.. that is why it was changing addresses so often.  I said I wanted paid for that!

We have Suddenlink now and they have been pretty good (good enough I went with Cable/Net/Phone VIP package), although for the past month, month and half, the 15MB has been running at 1/2 or even 1/3 strength and starting to royally piss me off.  However, I do know they are in the middle of upgrades, so giving them some time.

The most hated cable company is the one the most people have. The best company is the one whose sh*t you don't have to deal with.

I just cannot believe that Time Warner Cable is on that list.  Who doesn't love:

Revolving channel lineups?
Redundant channel slots that make you have to scroll by storage wars 3 times while looking through the guide?
A channel lineup that appears to have been organized by the Riddler?
Struggling through 10 different people at the call center because no one can figure out why your bill just went up $10-50/month?
Seeing Coach Cower pimping TWC every eight minutes no matter what channel you are on?
DVR systems that freeze and randomly shut off, usually while recording something you really want to watch.
Internet that does the same.

I freaking love TWC!

I am stunned any of those numbers are over 25%! They all suck. The phone companies suck and blow; especially mobile carriers. It's like Ma Bell runs the entire telecommunications industry.

As a former Time Warner customer, I can tell you. They suck to "commiting fraud' levels. Listen carefully to their (and anyone else's ads) and learn something.

You get cable. If you get the super duper tier, you get on demand, dvr, watch on any device, etc) FREE!!!

Except in TW's case this shiat DIDNT FARCKING WORK. All you could be sure of was a nice big error message when you went to use on demand, or finally got round to watching that Breaking Bad finale, etc.

So you say..."That's bullshiat, I'm calling customer service!" you call customer service, present them your documentation, email them your screenshots and demand a refund.

I shiat you not, you'll hear this "I'm sorry, but there is no refund. those services are all "free", unless there is an interruption of regular cable service...blah blah blah".

To their credit, by the time I left them, they were a bunch better, but a scam is a scam, friends.

So close.

Comcast apparently just decided I can no longer have The Hub, and put it (along with 79 channels I'll never watch) in the next higher bracket, because Ponies.
I had that farking channel for the last 5 years. Then "Nope. Not yours anymore. We are taking just that one channel away)

I can't get this to upload properly here at work, but I made this image about 2 weeks ago because I've gotten completely fed up with Comcast lately:

I don't like any of them, and no, I don't have cable.  Do not want.

At least once a month I get a knock on the door from someone from that company.

I gotta ask--is that residential solicitation?  Because my town has an ordinance forbidding that.
