... Testing every hour and then publicly posting to Twitter when the speeds suck.

I should have thought of this when Charter was clearly ignoring our local complaints for over a month.

"If Charter Communications is allowed to buy cable rivals Time Warner Cable (TWC) and Bright House Networks (BHN), just two Internet service providers could control about 70 percent of the nation's 25Mbps-and-up broadband subscriptions.

Comcast would remain the country's largest ISP with 22.87 million Internet subscribers, while Charter's merger will push it into second place with at least 20.56 million. (AT&T has 15.83 million.) Combined, Comcast and Charter would account for less than half of home Internet connections. But under the Federal Communications Commission definition of "broadband," which requires download speeds of at least 25Mbps, Comcast and Charter would reign supreme in the US."



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.
