Time Warner Cable Introduces Usage Tracker Measurement Tool in Upstate N.Y.

Phillip Dampier January 15, 2013 Editorial & Site News, Internet Overcharging, Time Warner Cable 2 Comments

twcGreenTime Warner Cable has introduced its usage measurement tracker tool for customers in parts of upstate New York. The tool can be found on Time Warner Cable’s website under the My Services -> My Internet menu for customers logged in on the website.

Time Warner has been quietly collecting usage statistics for customers in this region since September 2012 and also offers the archived results for viewing.

The measurement tool managed to track a swap of the cable company-supplied modem for one I own in the fall of 2012.

The usage statistics seem generally accurate, although it combines both upstream and downstream traffic into one number. Some routers and other usage measurement tools measure this traffic separately.
