What a surprise, the "non-contract base rate" of $35/mo for what is now the the slowest internet offered by TWC, now just jumped to $45. Yep that's right, slower speeds, more money.
OH, and now that they've been consumed by Speculum Communications, the rape continues...Spectrum's BASE ENTRY LEVEL SERVICE (while it IS 60mps) is $67!!!!! Yep that's right, accept your 30% jump in rates for LESS service, or take the faster internet for DOUBLE! WHEN is someone going to jump in and put a leash on these utility companies who are price gouging us for what is essentially these days a basic necessity. They had over $28B in revenue last year, and overshot ALL earnings expectations.
And we get a 30% price increase. I would LOVE to purchase stock in Spectrum/TWC but alas, I can't afford it with my new cable bill, and my internet is too slow to support my stock trading software anyways.
Did I mention they have a monopoly in this region? I never thought I could hate a company more than Time Warner Cable....congratulations Spectrum, you've now exceeded MY expectations too!
