The apps don't work half the time since the twitch over. The internet is an absolute necessity these days. I live on less than $4,000 a year. So, when I have to pay out for internet fees just to communicate with my family that all live out state. Even I can't get free internet I would be happy being able to pay no more than $40 a month for high speed internet.

I've been with Time Warner Cable for many, many years, I'm on a fixed income and they always, with only one exception, work with me on pricing. So yes I did go to another ISP for a couple of years, but once again Time Warner is working with me and I'm happy to be back.

My Internet provider is one of the best I've ever chosen. It has one of the fastest broadband speeds that I have ever seen. WOW also has very helpful service available at a moments notice. We have multiple devices on only one network so speed and reliablity are truly important to us.

Customer Service is difficult to reach. Great customer service, but only if you have the patience to call enough times, be transferred enough times. Why can't they just list the correct phone number on their bill and/ or web site. I am satisfied with their internet and tv services, but the increasing prices are not acceptable to me. It's time for a change.
