You may not love Time Warner Cable, and you may wish you had a couple of other ISP options, but the numbers are talking this week: TWC just signed up their ten millionth high-speed Internet user, which is certainly a milestone worth celebrating. The high-speed wars have been boiling for years now, and TWC is hardly the only nationwide player. That said, they are the go-to ISP in lots of areas without much competition, but DOCSIS 3.0 rollouts have almost definitely encouraged growth.

The news makes TWC the 3rd largest ISP in the U.S. in terms of the total number of residential and commercial broadband customers, but you can be sure that the others are on the hunt for more. Ten million down, ten million to go?

Good for them.

In other news, does anybody remember network neutrality?

Congratulations to TWC. I personally have nothing against Time Warner but I think we hate all of these telecommunication companies for some of their business practices.

Yeah Taylor,..You mean that this that they ended up pushing through by making a bunch of little bills and piggybacking them on other props.? Much like the cap n trade that is now all part of the EPA. So now the govmnt can be worse than big brother and everyone thinks its ok, because it comes from the people they voted for? Hows your energy prices? Hows the chocolate milk in your school, or maybe one day you get to explain what a happy meal was to your kids:P Of course the people who voted for change must think freedom and liberty is given to you by the govmnt.

I think once the people in condos and apartments are offered a different solution to their cable provider they will run from TW as fast as they can. But since the gvmnt can regulate the zoning of the providers, then they will pretty much have a lock on that market. now that they can regulate your isp, they will be watching!
