Thank you to those of you who shared your thought and insights. Time
Warner channel 23 is now one of the c-span that I apparently previously
My concern is with absence of choice in the move and the arbitrary
action of Time Warner. What ever I programs I had - is it not
reasonable to expect to keep them if they are still available?
ISP speed - we are slower than what Country(es)? Why?
Do I/we have options - AT&T is my other option - For the life of me,
I've never believed that the copper wired TELCo could deliver meaningful
INTERNET speed over slightly twisted pairs that was installed in my
house in 1978. Fiber is the answer, however AT&T appear to betting
their future on 'wireless'. Is it true that some is Austin, who claim
to hate big government is actively trying to prevent local government
from getting in the internet provider game for their citizens?
Is it true that "The american consumer will tolerate anything and pay
for the privilege"? Egypt anyone - Eli Pariser: Beware online "filter
bubbles" | Video on TED.com.
