    It’s the merger of the worst and the second worst company in customer service. I foresee no change to those like me who live where either one is a local government-granted monopoly, but a lot of change to those who live where both are competitors.

    As a cable-cutter, I still patronize TimeWarner for Internet, but I pay twice as much as my brother who lives where there are three cable companies vying for customers.

    Of course, were there more cable-cutters, these companies wouldn’t be multi-billion dollar behemoths, especially with such an abysmal record in customer service and even with immoral monopolies.

      In my opinion AT&T takes the #1 spot actually. With TWC I as always able to reach a live person relatively quickly. AT&T not so much. As you imply, the broadband ramifications are the most significant event here.

    I could live without high speed internet access.

    Comcast is the worst company I have ever been with. There customer service is terrible, DVR is a dinosaur, and they always raise prices. Now I read they are charging customers $100 to upgrade to their new X1 DVR box. These guys are crooks and now are merging and will become more powerful. I go OTA now and have the new Tivo Roamio DVR which blows Comcasts X1 and all their other garage DVR’s out of the water.

    I cannot pay Tivo’s fees. I have eight TVs. I’d need a second mortgage to put a Tivo on each of these.
