Just got a notice last week from TWC that they'll be charging an additional $3.95 per month "lease fee" for their modem, "to continually maintain and service the equipment". This would be the modem that I've never once had them out to service since I first got it years ago. Everytime I turn around TWC is adding some kind of fee to my bill. But it's either them or DSL, which isn't as fast. They do offer a list of "approved devices" if you want to buy your own, ranging in price from about $90 - $150.

I would gladly pay Google a little more for that kind of speed and to get the TWC monkey off my back. Unfortunately, I bet it's years before it gets to my area.
