    Unless they have some new wireless tech I'm not aware of, 100Mbps for the wired devices isn't gonna happen. Since they claim that's the speed your wired devices will be able to hit when connected, it can't be a wireless TV box.

    Their current TV boxes look like they only connect via coax or cat5/6, so unless they're rolling out a new box, it won't be wireless. That means more coax runs in and around your house, unless you let them use the existing ones.

    It isn't close at all. Even if the TV is even in pricing, no one offers symmetric gigabit to the home. And AT&T is cheaper, but 40 times slower. TWC more expensive and 20 times slower.

    I've been thinking about timing of my announcement to TWC that I'm in the market for a new provider named Google myself. Wonder if they'll do anything now or if it has to wait.

    I used to call them once a year to haggle them to rock bottom prices. They're pushovers, especially if you threaten to leave.

    Used to be you could call and complain to get the same deal a new customer would get. They've stopped that tho, our at least stopped it if you have no alternative in your area

    This is huge - it appears they have their process down and are starting to make a press on the telcos/ISPs. Since they are doing the building out with contractors they could ramp up deployments quite a bit.

    And of course TWC stock dropped again.

    Edit: Helps that in this case, they are acquiring Provo's municipal fiber network.

    One of the engineers a work moved from Provo a year ago, where he worked for the city's electric utility. He told me that the infrastructure is already there since the city build a fiber ring their selves, but AT&T and Comcast $#@!-blocked them by lobbying the state government for a law that would prohibit municipalities from being service providers. Google will be buying their network and the goal is to have "free limited internet to the whole city for the next 7 years," limited meaning non-1 Gigabit service.

    Why these guys shouldn't be trusted with the networks. I mean, what a load of crap, IMHO. They don't want to provide quality service, prevent others from doing it.

    Hell, they could have done what Google did too - just use what is already there. Lame. $#@! all these companies.

    Time Warner Cable said Wednesday it has begun rolling out a free citywide Wi-Fi network for its customers in Austin.

    The network is offering some free hotspots now, and hundreds more will be added across the city this year, the company said. The network is free to Time Warner Cable customers with standard Internet service or above, as well as to Time Warner Cable Business Class Internet customers.

    The company will offer some free trial and prepaid access options for non-subscribers, said Time Warner Cable spokeswoman Melissa Sorola.
    The announcement comes just weeks after Google Inc. said it planned to bring its Google Fiber high-speed Internet network to Austin, and Time Warner Cable executives said that played a role in the company moving forward with its Austin Wi-Fi network.

    “We’ve been rolling out our free Wi-Fi network across our footprint for some time now, as part of our larger strategy to offer significantly more value to our Internet subscribers. Austin was in the game plan for 2013. But Google’s recent announcement encouraged us to deploy our network more aggressively now,” Jeff Simmermon, Time Warner Cable’s director of digital communications, wrote on the company’s blog Wednesday.
    It's not a bad idea, not a bad idea at all, but it still isn't Gigabit, which TWC is so desperately avoiding.

    Really am thinking that the content providing side, aka the Cable TV side, is angry/frustrated with high speed internet chipping away at their offerings, and yet they have to do something, otherwise they will lose customers to Google

    And I'm surprised they weren't able to stop Google through legislative means.

    Talked to a rep at an at&t store today and he said that at&t will role out a gig network to compete with Google before Google hits Austin. He said price point will be competitive as well. We'll see.

    I find the high-school reps hocking capped data plans in a franchised store to be a less-than-reliable source for AT&T corporate decisions.

    That still isn't much of a choice. Cap vs no cap.

    Plus I HIGHLY doubt that AT&T will deliver on anything CLOSE to gigabit speeds.

    They say they will..and to keep my business they will. Either I get Google fiber or I get enhanced ATT. Works for me! Again, I already have fiber to the home, the only thing AtT needs to do is stop throttling the speed.

    competitively priced at&t gig internets...hahahahaha...tell it again. gottdammit, now get your ass to home plate, ben.

    ok, even if at&t did offer this service it would be tied to a 10 year contract with monthly 1 GB usage caps. gotta make sure the "good" users aren't impacted by leechers.

    Google added another KC suburb this week, after they voted to allow Google in. That's like 3-4 suburbs now.

    Those of you in Round Rock, Cedar Park, Georgetown, etc. may have a shot, assuming your elected city officials vote in favor of allowing Google in.

    Slower than 79% of the US? I'd hate to see who's in the 99% group.

    Those are the kind of speeds where you point that speedtest out to uverse and tell them you're gone unless they fix that $#@!. Dialup is not much slower than that and can be had for less than $5 a month.

    Damn that's awful. Yeah I'd bitch pretty loud. Out of curiosity, I ran a test from TWC in Austin.

    I'm paying for the fastest internet they offer as well. Called and bitched earlier and they're sending someone out tomorrow. They say it's probably on my end and if it is that they charge $99 to fix any wiring issues...
