Time Warner inherited the antiquated Adelphia system and they had their work cut out for them. The first day they took over Adelphia, they added 40 On Demand Stations which was great. Since Time Warner took over Adelphia's internet operation, there has been 100% improvement. E-mail is reliable and speeds are constant. With Turbo, I usually get 25 Down and 1750 Up.\r
Where Time Warner needs the most improvement is on their television operation and channel selection. Channels 2-72, 95, 98 and 99 are still broadcast in analog format which needs to be converted to digital. Time Warner doesn't tell you in their advertising that they still broadcast in analog from channel 99 down.\r
If you are subscribers to their premium channels on digital cable, there are no West Coast feeds of any of the premium channels. High Definition premium channels only have one channel each. Since FIOS came into the area, Time Warner was forced to add HDTV stations to its lineup. They now have 57 HDTV stations whereas FIOS has over 100,\r
Digital phone service is great except for one problem, if you lose your power (electricity), you lose your phone service. I believe they should have some sort of battery backup to alleviate this problem.\r
Time Warner also refuses to carry the Big Ten Network locally even though they have a national corporate contract. Other stations that Time Warner refuses to carry are the Military History Channel, WGN-America, Sleuth, Pentagon Channel, RFD Network, Maverick TV, Blackbelt TV, WWE-24/7, CNN-International, Plex, Retroplex, Indiplex, Colours just to name a few.\r
Overall, an average cable provider but vastly improved as compared to its predecessor, Adelphia.
Pros: Much better than Adelphia, Digital phone, Digital and HDTV television, Roadrunner Turbo
Cons: Poor channel selection, still uses analog channels, no battery backup for digital phone
