Road Runner becomes Pricey

New price increases for the January bill in effect, your communications and entertainment will cost MORE money. I did write previous articles since 2008 about this issue and you can see some of them here.

Expect Road Runner Standard in the Los Angeles area to cost us now $52.99 from $50.99, when will these price increases end? We cant absorb this much longer. However if they don’t cap data for the time being to a fair use standard then the price suggested for their service is still a good deal.

Time Warner 2011 price increases.

Time Warner raises rates yet again. I remember when my Internet services was $42.95, then $44.95 then $46.95, $48.99 and now $50.99. I am getting tired of this bull crap. I know content providers are asking for extra money and building a quality network is not free.

But when people are facing tough times people do have to make tough choices. My relationship with Time Warner was not as stable when we first started, but the service has been pretty good.

Could there be ways we could save money like not wanting espn3 access? Maybe that could shave off 1.00 off our bill.

Problem is Time Warner and other cable providers are also competing with competors such as Verizon’s Fios service which offers the services at slightly cheaper prices. If my land lord authorized the install of fios on his home I would have been happy because Verizon is offering real good prices for phone/television and internet service which would save like over thirty bucks a month. Since I am not allowed authorization to install Fios and convert the phone system to fiber, I am at the mercy of Time Warner.

Road Runner Price Increase

It was 44.95 in 2008, now it is 46.95. However in 2010 expect your internet service to rise another 2.04 with Time Warner Cable. I am seriously pondering leaving TWC and going to Verizon for my internet services. 39.95 plus 2-3.00 of federal taxes is way better than 50.00 for my internet services.

I hope Time Warner enjoys losing some customers due to this ill-timed price increase. I know companies do need to make a profit, but they need to be tactful in this economic climate.
