Time Warner Cable Outage (CNY)
Well it looks like someone has gone a tripped over the extension cord again. Moments ago the central New York area was hit with a cable outage. It appears to have affected Syracuse, Liverpool, Oswego, Manlius, Baldwinsville, Bristol, Camillus, Fayetteville, Watertown, and Cicero. We are back up and television is operating fine. This service provider continues to fall down with its service and support for customers like us keeps declining. It’s not so much that the service went out for this short of a time but that fact that we have to PAY SO MUCH for any service that goes down.
As a consumer paying a premium for any service I expect a cretin level of reliability. That said the Comcast merger will only add to the utility’s monopoly. If you do not think that you are trapped guess again. If you want power and you want your cable and internet you better expect to pay more.
Just as National Grad increased their rates without warning our elected officials do nothing to correct it. Keep lining the pockets from big business but it’s only a matter of time till it all goes bad. We need to start looking past the greed and the do less with more attitude and really start looking out for each other.
