Post FCC broadband
According to the FCC, I no longer have broadband internet. :o http://www.theverge.com/2015/1/29/79326 ... and-25mbps

The 15/1 package I have from TWC is no longer considered average. Will see if Time Warner actually increases their packages considering the news plus Google's announcement about coming to Charlotte.

ATT still throttles down to 3G for unlimited data users after 5GB has been reached. :angry-banghead:

Are you talking about cellular internet?

We're talking about home internet.

Post Re: FCC broadband
i don't have broadband either. still on a 8/1 connection.

the alternative is basically TWC internet, which they advertise as $45/month for 12 months, but fuckers never disclose their real price after the promotional period, which after extensive research on my own, found it to be $70/mo, and that's before all the taxes, fees, bullshit charges that piles on and forced equipment rental fees, which will add up to be $85~$90/mo. it is for that reason i still have not upgraded my internet.

Same here. after promotion TWC here is 57 plus all the extras for 15/1. Every year I call and haggle with them. Currently I'm paying 41.
