  • Time Warner didn't give up

    Now they're just changing the TOS in fine print on your cable bill. Nice, eh?

    Time Warner is one reason why I moved into the neighborhood that I live in now: the competing cable company has a very small coverage area, but I was determined to be in it so as to never have to monkey around with TW's BS again!!

    6. Special Provisions Regarding HSD Service

    (ii) I agree that TWC or ISP may change the Maximum Throughput Rate of any tier by amending the price list or Terms of Use. My continued use of the HSD Service following such a change will constitute my acceptance of any new Maximum Throughput Rate. If the level or tier of HSD Service to which I subscribe has a specified limit on the amount of bytes that I can use in a given billing cycle, I also agree that TWC may use technical means, including but not limited to suspending or reducing the speed of my HSD Service, to ensure compliance with these limits, and that TWC or ISP may move me to a higher tier of HSD Service (which may result in higher monthly charges) or impose other charges and fees if my use exceeds these limits.

    (iii) I agree that TWC may use Network Management Tools as it determines appropriate and/or that it may use technical means, including but not limited to suspending or reducing the Throughput Rate of my HSD Service, to ensure compliance with its Terms of Use and to ensure that its service operates efficiently. I further agree that TWC and ISP have the right to monitor my bandwidth usage patterns to facilitate the provision of the HSD Service and to ensure my compliance with the Terms of Use and to efficiently manage their networks and their provision of services. TWC or ISP may take such steps as each may determine appropriate in the event my usage of the HSD Service does not comply with the Terms of Use. I acknowledge that HSD Service does not include other services managed by TWC and delivered over TWC's shared infrastructure, including Video Service and Digital Phone Service.

    Video on Demand supplied by Time Warner = Good

    Video on Demand supplied by Netflix = Bad

    Time Warner's phone service = Good

    Vonage = Bad

    I see a lawsuit for restraint of trade or something similar in their future.
