just switched from TWC internet to cablevision/optimum for internet only. cablevision is much faster and a little cheaper. they make you buy your own router unless you're also getting cable and phone service from cablevision.

So, I just got call from Time Warner asking if I would sign up for tv again if they offered me cable/internet for $71/month for two years. I drop from $140/month to $71/month v. $50/month for Internet only.

I was kind of looking forward to not having tv.

And she was.

Time Warner is somewhat like the NY Times subscription service. If you cancel, or offer to cancel, there's always a better deal behind door number 2...

God that gets my goat, I'm paying the same amount ($70) for JUST basic cable. I'm cancelling.

unless you live in an apt complex where TW is the only option. Then they don't offer anything if you cancel.

I had a friend in a house who played off TW against a competitor or two and ended up with a 50% price cut and a $200 credit.

direct TV and cablevision are willing to haggle too.
