If you have any other option, take it. Otherwise stand by to play the game with TW where they are continually trying to raise your bill, at least every six months. I cancelled my TV service and went to an antenna with Sling TV and I can't believe I waited so long to dump TW cable. Do it if you can!

Constant outages and speeds are never what promised. Customer service is some of the rudest people.

I came in on the promotion however, the bill began to crawl upwards and I really could not afford high prices. Because I was in a contact I could not get out of it until it expired. To make a long story short at the end of my contract my bill was amazingly high for one and a half months of service . Once out of contact I was free to terminate services. I am having to go through the weekend with no tv because my TWC installation is on Monday ...You know what ..I don't care. ATT is taking advantage of customers and I would rather look at DVD's and stream shows over my phone then allow this to continue. All those cartoon show and shopping channels. My kid is grown and I don't want to shop from a sofa. on the countless shopping channels.
