Time Warner just can’t seem to give me an internet connection for more than a few days. The longest streak of constant internet acess stands at 7 days. Then, it will go out for at least 3 days… just long enough so that when the guy comes to look at it it works fine. This is the 3rd time in less than 2 months that it has been out for an extended period of time, not to mention the countless periods of a few hours. They have no idea what could be causing it. Good thing being forced to use Time Warner for internet is only temporary. I will definetly aviod Time Warner service in the future, I would definetly rather pay more for a service that actually works. Good thing Arby’s has reliable free wifi…
TW has been rock solid for me, mostly. My first cable modem died after four years. The tech who replaced it was surprised it lasted that long. It started to cut my connection for 30s-1m every 30m or so. My replacement did much the same thing, but at a longer interval. However, more recently, it has for no good reason been up and stable.
A friend used to work at a call center supporting DSL and suggested he would never use it.
So maybe you need to buy an OC48 service to keep yourself happy. I’m sure that would be under the “gladly pay more” category.
Although a direct OC45 service would be very nice, I was thinking more along the lines of Speakeasy (www.speakeasy.net).
