  1. Glen is an excellent executive who has served TWC well. They have been clear since 2001 that they will use data pricing as a tool to impede the “over-the-top” strategy and maintaing a grip on premium content. Much to the chagrin of consumers, telecom/cable provider can exercise this leverage unless the FCC intermediates.

    But all is not lost. There is a reason Google is building out high-speed fiber delivery at an accelerating pace. A legitimate competitor in the space whose business has a far more diversified revenue base just might be a game changer.

  2. “Your network speeds will still suck.” Mercifully, not mine, not anymore. Last month, after years of pain with Time Warner cable, I switched to Frontier DSL, which recently became available where I live, and it’s a tremendous improvement. Peak speeds are lower, but it’s much steadier. I can now watch streaming videos that were hopeless with Time Warner. And I’m paying $12 a month *less*. (Honestly – I’m a real person, not a shill for Frontier.)
