    Good to know. I like DTV. Been with them for 20 years, but money is money and I like having more.

    I think it's easier when it's just TV. Internet can tough to live without for a month just to save a few bucks here and there. Saving $70 or so bucks a month is different, but you get the point.

    So that means you won't be contributing to IPTAY?

    I agree. I have FTC at the lake and Spectrum in Florence both are priced about the same I think 10$ different, but the FTC is stupid fast. The wildest thing is it's almost at the same the end of the road so to speak. You would think it would be terrible, and it use to be. However the Florence locals one is on Cashua close to 52, it is the slowest. I have another literally 2 miles from FMU. Which has all sorts of upgrades, but FTC still blows it out the water.
    Yup, he's crazy...

    That worked! I just had my monthly Spectrum bill dropped from $93 to $59 for the next 12 mos and back dated to credit last months bill that was due today. Now we need to set a reminder for this thread to resurface 12 mos from now when the "promotion" is over so my dumb ass doesn't overlook it and go back to paying more than the initial $93 bill.
    Thanks for the heads up! I've had poor internet service with Spectrum intermittently over the last 2 years and when I've called to bitch and ask for a better rate, I've been told $93 is the absolute lowest. It's a shame you have to threaten to jump ship to get the "new promotion that has just come out".

    It all depends on delivery method... the old DSL is distance sensitive. So being at the end of the road could be rough.

    With Spectrum's being HFC (hybrid fiber/ coax) if they can get a cable to the premise you're golden. The distance limit has changed over the years but it used to be 300' from the tap at the road to the power meter. Anything over that tech wouldn't do it.

    If your provider offers fiber all the way to the premise then distance, again, doesn't matter... it's fiber. It's data packets traveling at the speed of light over a fiber optic strand of glass. It could circle the globe a buncha times in a second.

    I just tested my internet with FTC and it is 265 mps. In summerville it was 50 last night with spectrum (I am pretty sure thats what my "package" is for).

    I never had an issue with the speed or reliability
    Thanks

    We have Spectrum at home (any my office ) However ATT ran fiber optic about 18 months ago and debating on that

    Is fiber optic that much faster ?

    We really have no issues with Spectrum but not sure if the fiber optic is worth the change over and have zero ideas about cost of it

    Spectrum is infinitely better than the ATT fiber optic Iíve had. Itís just too bad that Spectrum is such a POS company. Pure Shit.

    Tprice, I don't think I've ever gotten much feedback on AT&T's fiber. Like Tater said, all the big ones are evil corporations.
