Think your cable bill is high now, but at least you’re “locked in” for a price for 12 months? Think again!
Time Warner Cable has found a way around honoring their commitment to your current price by charging for equipment that was previously included in your monthly bill.
I received the following postcard today from my friends at Time Warner Cable:
Calling customer-no-service located in India, I reached Patel who advised me that, “thisisnotpriceincrease.” It does mean that I am expected to pay another $48 a year more, but he assured me that I simply don’t understand.
If I want, I can buy a $200 modem and then I don’t have to pay the $48 a year, but that modem will be obsolete in a year + it locks me into having to Fuck with Time Warner Cable. And that modem won’t do me a bit of good when I switch to another provider. Nice choice, thanks for mentioning it, Patel.
Screw You Time Warner Cable. I will be using your service just long enough to find another provider.
