DOCSIS 3 Upgrades Completed in Western NY, Time Warner Offers New Speeds Across the Region

Phillip Dampier

Time Warner Cable has completed their DOCSIS 3 upgrade of the Rochester/Finger Lakes region and their new Road Runner Extreme and Wideband services should now be available throughout the region.  Stop the Cap! HQ will receive its upgrade to Road Runner Extreme late this afternoon, primarily for the 5Mbps upstream speed, which will make uploading content to our servers much easier and more efficient.

The cable company is insistent on their installation fee, which amounts to nearly $68 (unjustified in my personal opinion).  Some details for our local readers:

  • Customers in the Rochester & Finger Lakes region almost never own their own cable modems — they are provided with Road Runner at no extra charge;
  • Upgrading to Extreme or Wideband will mean either a modem swap or a second piece of equipment if you have Time Warner phone service.  The new equipment includes a built-in wireless router;
  • You are not obligated to use the cable company’s equipment as your primary router if you favor using your own existing router;
  • As part of the installation fee, you have a right to insist they spend the time to configure service the way you want it, especially if you want to continue using your own router;
  • It is also a good time to ask them to check signal levels and clean up any wiring or service issues.  Western New York has endured a record-breaking deluge of rain this spring, and degraded outdoor wiring can create havoc for broadband and cable service.
  • If you are currently receiving a promotion such as free or discounted Road Runner Turbo service, you will lose the value of that promotion when you upgrade service and will pay full price going forward.

Beyond the installation fee, Road Runner Extreme (30/5Mbps) costs $20 more than Road Runner Standard (10/1Mbps) service.  Road Runner Wideband (50/5Mbps) is priced at $99 a month, but is a much better value bundled with the cable company’s Signature Home ($199) package, which includes complete packages of digital cable, “digital phone,” and broadband service.  For most in the Rochester/Finger Lakes area, the only alternative is Frontier Communications’ DSL combined with an unlimited calling plan and satellite television or a similar package from Verizon or much smaller Windstream.  Verizon’s fiber to the home service FiOS is not available anywhere in this region.


Time Warner Cable Increasing Prices (Again) and Teases Faster Broadband in WNY

Another rate increase

Time Warner Cable is raising prices again, less than five months after their last rate increase which took effect in January in the Rochester area.

This time, the cable company is adding $1-2 dollars for each premium movie channel, already battered by cord-cutting and consumers cutting back on high cable bills:

Effective with your July 2011 billing, the price for premium channels will be adjusted as follows:

  • HBO: $13.95$14.95
  • Cinemax:  $10.95$12.95
  • Showtime:  $10.95$12.95
  • Starz:  $10.95$12.95

This rate increase covers the Rochester/Finger Lakes region, but other areas can expect similar pricing in the future.  The response to these price hikes will likely bring another round of cord-cutting as consumers increasingly look for less expensive alternatives.


We also note a Brighton customer who signed up for the $29.99 12-month promotion for Road Runner Standard on Time Warner Cable’s website is currently fighting with the cable company over claims the real price of the promotion is $34.95 — the $5 difference reflecting a hidden modem rental fee.  If true, it will be a first for the Rochester area where cable modems have always come with the service at no additional charge.  We are waiting to learn whether this is a mistake or something new for Rochester.

In other news, Time Warner Cable has been teasing some customers on the company’s waiting list for Road Runner Extreme (30/5) and Road Runner Wideband (50/5Mbps) DOCSIS 3 broadband service.  Several people, myself included, received phone calls earlier today notifying us the service was now available in our area.  Don’t you believe it.  After more than 45 minutes (and a call back a few hours later), we were told the service was not actually available in our area… yet.  It’s certainly an annoying situation for both those getting the calls and the confused customer service representatives who then had to disappoint.

Interested customers can call (585) 756-1119 and bypass the usual voice prompts and speak directly with a customer service representative.  They verify service availability based on the phone number/address on the account.  Installation fees of around $68 apply, and although some customers report having them waived or reduced, we’ve heard the $68 fee often ends up on the bill anyway.

Anecdotal reports indicate early adopters are experiencing some technical glitches getting consistently fast speeds, but these are usually remedied after service calls or refreshing the cable modem from the office.


Road Runner Extreme/Wideband Arrives in Greater Rochester; Broadband Price Promotions

Phillip Dampier April 28, 2011 Broadband Speed, Time Warner Cable 10 Comments

Time Warner Cable's office on Mt. Hope Avenue in Rochester, N.Y.

More than two years after Time Warner Cable unveiled its DOCSIS 3 cable modem upgrade for New York City customers, Time Warner Cable has begun rolling out faster speeds in the metro Rochester area.  Rochester is the last upstate city to get DOCSIS 3, and Time Warner Cable has only soft-launched the upgrade in selected parts of the area — especially on the east side extending into Wayne County.

According to a Time Warner Cable representative we spoke with this afternoon, the service can now be ordered by customers in the following towns:

  • Webster
  • Perinton
  • Sodus
  • Macedon
  • Medina
  • Lima
  • Covington

What do these communities all have in common?  They were all suffering from some congestion problems earlier this year.  Webster, in particular, was one of the worst-impacted areas.  Our readers reported dramatic speed reductions during peak usage times, often slowing to 1Mbps during the evening hours.  The most curious town on the list is Covington — a tiny community of 1,300 in extreme northeast Wyoming County.  Time Warner solved their congestion problems, and those experienced by other towns with DOCSIS 3 upgrades.

The representative we spoke with indicated a service call is required to activate either Road Runner Extreme (30/5Mbps) or Wideband (50/5Mbps).  A modem replacement is necessary.  Rochester area customers do not pay a modem rental fee, so the replacement comes free.  Signature Home customers in these areas should soon see 50/5Mbps speeds, if they have the company’s DOCSIS 3 modem.

Time Warner Cable will slowly expand the service to their other Rochester/Finger Lakes Region customers, with an estimated completion date of early summer.  The representative warned us not every Time Warner Cable representative may have the latest information allowing customers in these areas to order the service, so if you are told it is not available yet, and you live in one of these towns, you may want to try calling again.  Most of the Rochester area operators are briefed on the expanded service, but many in Buffalo are not, we were told, and there is no way to tell where your call will be answered.

Time Warner Cable has also unveiled some new price promotions for western New York.  Time Warner Cable’s website now sells its broadband-only service for a whopping $54.95 a month for Standard 10/1Mbps service.  Turbo runs an additional $10 a month (15/1Mbps service.)  That’s $15 more per month than just a few years ago when service could be had for $39.95 a month.  Broadband-0nly customers pay the highest prices because the company wants to drive its customers into multi-service bundled offerings.  The more services you take from Time Warner, the lower the price for each of them.

But for now, Road Runner Standard can be had by new customers for $33 a month for 12 months.  Turbo costs an extra $5 per month, making the out the door price for both around $38.  After the first year is up, prices go up.  Time Warner Cable in Rochester can be reached at (585) 756-5000.


Frontier Largely Omits Rochester’s Largest Employer from the Phone Book

Phillip Dampier April 12, 2011 Consumer News, Editorial & Site News, Frontier 1 Comment

Another month, another colossal mistake from Frontier Communications.

As dead-tree-format telephone directories make their way to residents in western New York, customers noticed Rochester’s largest employer — the University of Rochester/Medical Center, was largely missing from the company’s Yellow Pages.


During the production process for your 2011 FrontierPages Rochester Metro directory, multiple listings were inadvertently omitted or printed in error.  On behalf of FrontierPages and out telephone directory publisher, The Berry Company LLC, I’d like to sincerely apologize for this oversight and any confusion this may have caused.

Frontier printed and enclosed a supplement, University of Rochester Special Edition, to cover the lost listings.  It was the least they could do for the community’s biggest employer.  Ordinary consumers (like myself), don’t get similar treatment.  For the seventh year in a row, Frontier’s White Pages lists an old address we left in 2004.  This, despite not less than 15 reminders asking them to fix it.


Upstate New York Broadband Rankings Out: Rochester Ranks Last in Speed and Value

In an upstate New York match-up, the Rochester/Finger Lakes region scored dead last in broadband speed and value, according to data from Broadband.com.

Why are broadband speeds so much lower in the Flower City?  Blame Frontier Communications, which continues to pitch its decade-old DSL product, delivering an average speed of 4.45Mbps, while other upstate cities enjoy access and competition from Verizon’s fiber to the home network FiOS.  Frontier DSL actually often costs more, after taxes and fees, than Time Warner Cable’s much-faster cable broadband product, Road Runner, which rates an average download speed of 12.77Mbps in Rochester.  Frontier does manage to pull one win — higher upload speed DSL providers can often achieve in cities where cable operators keep upstream speeds as low as possible.

Time Warner Cable has dragged its feet upgrading broadband service in the area to its DOCSIS 3 platform other upstate cities have had since last year.  DOCSIS 3 should arrive within the next 4-8 weeks, which should boost broadband speeds, but may not deliver lower broadband prices because of Frontier’s uncompetitiveness in the area.


(Source: Broadband.com)

The top city in upstate New York for download speed is the state capital, Albany.  But Buffalo wins the contest for upload speed thanks to aggressive competition for Time Warner from Verizon in the Queen City.  Buffalo also pays the least for service — nearly $5 less per month than residents in Rochester pay on average.  Syracuse scores in the middle — but closer in terms of speed and value to other Verizon-served cities.

Slow and expensive broadband service can hamper economic development and costs consumers more.  Unfortunately, there are no signs Frontier Communications has plans to do anything differently in its largest service area — a classic driver of the accelerating number of customers calling to pull the plug on their landline service.

Time Warner’s Telephone Tragedies Continue in NY/Mass. – 3rd Problem This Month (Get Credit!)

Phillip Dampier January 19, 2011 Consumer News, Time Warner Cable, Video No Comments

If you are a Time Warner Cable “digital phone” customer living in New York or western Massachusetts, you can get a few dollars of your money back thanks to serious outages that have plagued the cable company for the past two weeks.

The worst problems occurred yesterday, when customers across the entire region couldn’t make or receive calls in many instances.

“My wife said it was like the whole system crashed,” reports Stop the Cap! reader Marcus, who lives near Syracuse.  “A lot of people here are very upset.”

Marcus reports he couldn’t even work around the outage by trying to set up call forwarding to send calls to his cell phone or another Voice Over IP provider.

“I tried to forward my Time Warner calls to a Vonage number I have and that didn’t work either,” Marcus writes.

We heard from several readers in Rochester, Albany, Syracuse, and even into western parts of Massachusetts that calling a Time Warner Cable customer from a cell phone or a landline from Verizon or Frontier was nearly impossible without getting a recording or busy signal.

Small business customers using Time Warner’s phone service were also impacted in some cases.

Lakeview Deli in Saranac Lake posted a message on its Facebook page just before noon, advising its customers to call in their lunch orders using a cell phone number because of the problems with its main phone line. Owner John Van Anden said he normally gets 30 to 40 calls around the lunch hour; he got only four on Tuesday.

“It hurt (business) quite a bit just because you can’t get phone calls from customers,” he said.

The outage, which lasted more than 12 hours, was reportedly finally fixed by the cable company last evening at around 11pm.  No explanation for the outage was given by Time Warner Cable.

This is the third major service problem for Time Warner’s phone service this month:

  1. Time Warner misdirected 911 emergency service calls to a call center in Colorado;
  2. Time Warner underestimated call volumes, leaving customers in central New York with “all circuits are busy” recordings or busy signals;
  3. Yesterday’s collapse of Time Warner’s phone network.

“Wow, this is starting to make Frontier look good again,” says our Rochester reader Kevin.  “I’ll be dropping my phone service with the cable company when my promotion ends and sticking with my Verizon cell phone.”

With all of these service outages, you know what that means — it’s time to go grab those service credits.  Customers in central New York can apply for at least a week of service credits because of the ongoing problems the company faces handling call volumes.  Everyone else in the region with “Digital Phone” service qualifies for a day’s worth of credit.  But you won’t get it unless you ask.  We’ve made asking simple, with our cut and paste process:

Time Warner’s Rate Increases Arrive in Western NY: Almost Everything Going Up

Time Warner Cable has begun notifying western New York cable subscribers their rates are going up, effective in about three weeks.

The cable company includes the notification in customer bills arriving throughout December and early January in the Rochester and Finger Lakes region of upstate New York.

The new prices are the result of higher programming costs, the development of new innovative features, and continued investment in our infrastructure and investment.

Rates for Road Runner, Time Warner’s broadband service, are increasing as much as five dollars per month.  This represents the third increase in broadband rates for Time Warner customers in the last 13 months, and should finally bury any notion the cable operator needs to implement Internet Overcharging schemes to recoup usage costs.  Time Warner Cable’s Road Runner Turbo package was priced at just under $50 a month two years ago.  Today, the same service costs $64.90 per month for standalone customers — a $14.90 increase.

2011 Pricing: Turbo - up to $64.90, Standard - up to $54.95, Basic - up to $37.95, Lite - $25.99

Customers on bundled service packages will see rate increases of around $5 for a digital cable-only package, $7 for a cable-broadband package, $6 for a cable-phone package, and $9 for “All the Best” which delivers cable, phone, and Internet service.  Those with multiple televisions will see a doubling of rates for each additional TV hooked up to digital cable (was $0.50, now $1.00), a $0.16 decrease in the monthly rental cost of a traditional cable box, and a $0.04 increase in the cost for the remote control.

A rate increase for the Rochester, N.Y. area

Existing and new customers might find a year of savings with the company’s current Triple Play $99 promotional offer, which some report to be good for existing subscribers adding additional services.  For one year, subscribers will pay $33.33 each for broadband, video, and phone service (you must take all three).  For a subscriber with cable and broadband, adding the phone service actually will cost you nearly $20 less per month, even if you never bothered to use it:

Choose the speed that's right for you at the price that's not.

2011 Rates

  • Watch N Surf: $118.99 per month
  • Triple Play Promotion: $99 per month

Customers are reminded Time Warner’s retention agents are authorized to provide discounts and better offers to those threatening to take their business elsewhere.  If your rates are increasing, it might be a good time to threaten to walk and see what kind of offers the cable company provides to get you to stay.

Time Warner Yanks WKTV Off Central NY Cable Screens, Replaced With Pennsylvania NBC Station

Phillip Dampier December 16, 2010 Consumer News, Time Warner Cable, Video 5 Comments

It's a three hour drive down Interstate 81 from Utica to Wilkes-Barre.

WKTV-TV Utica is off Time Warner Cable's lineup in parts of central New York this morning.

Viewers across Oneida, Herkimer, and other adjacent central New York counties lost their local NBC station early this morning after another retransmission consent dispute led Time Warner Cable to drop WKTV-TV in Utica, N.Y., from the lineup.

The fact Time Warner dropped a station is hardly unprecedented, but the cable company managed to replace the station almost immediately.  Away went WKTV, in came Nexstar-owned WBRE-TV, an NBC station serving Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, Penn.

This morning, Mohawk Valley viewers woke up to watching local news and weather for the Susquehanna Valley — 187 miles away to the south.

While Time Warner’s apparent agreement with WBRE keeps NBC shows rolling, the loss of local news and weather represents a major blow for area subscribers, many enduring a western and central New York winter that has brought more than 50 inches of snow in just the last two weeks in some areas.

Utica city officials expressed concern about the loss of the local Utica station because important snow emergency alerts were often delivered over the station.

“They might as well have imported a station from Florida, because there is very little in common between Herkimer County, New York and Luzerne County, Pennsylvania,” writes Steve, who lives in Herkimer.  “You would have thought they would have just grabbed an NBC station from Syracuse.”

...replaced with WBRE-TV, a station in Wilkes-Barre, Penn.

Apparently, Time Warner has permission from Nexstar to import the distant signal of the Pennsylvania station for impacted subscribers.  The effective reinstatement of network programming may make it more difficult for WKTV’s owner, Smith Media, to negotiate the station’s return to Time Warner’s lineup anytime soon.  That one NBC affiliate may have granted permission to replace another station during a contract dispute may become a point of contention on the network level.  Traditionally, broadcasters have not been quick to undercut other stations with such carriage agreements.

Smith’s other stations were also affected.  Time Warner dropped WFFF (Fox) AND WVNY (ABC), which serve the Burlington, Vt. market and the CW-affiliated digital sub-channel running alongside WKTV in Utica.  The station owner launched a website to share their position and educate people about how to receive the signals either over-the-air or via satellite.

In nearby Rochester, Time Warner continues to play hardball with Sinclair Broadcasting over a carriage agreement renewal for WUHF-TV.  But Time Warner customers facing the loss of the Fox affiliate will not see any interruption of Fox network programming — the cable company has a separate agreement with the network.  Ironically, Sinclair jointly operates WUHF with Nexstar Broadcasting of Rochester LLC, the owner of WROC-TV, the city’s CBS affiliate.

http://www.phillipdampier.com/video/WKTV Carriage Dispute 12-16-10.flv

Time Warner’s replacement of WKTV-TV in Utica with a distant station may be a new tactic in the hardball war over cable-broadcaster carriage agreements.  WKTV ran several stories about how the station’s loss impacts the area.  YNN’s Central NY news station, run by Time Warner Cable, also ran its own story this morning, all of which are covered here.  (9 minutes)

Verizon Targets Frontier, AT&T and Cable ‘Digital Phone’ Landline Customers in Rochester, N.Y. and Conn.

Phillip Dampier November 23, 2010 Competition, Consumer News, Verizon, Video 10 Comments

Verizon's Home Phone Connect base station

Verizon Communications has announced a new option for landline customers to ditch their local phone company with a new device that routes home phone calls over Verizon Wireless’ cellular network.

Verizon has chosen two test markets for its new Home Phone Connect service — Rochester, N.Y., serviced by Frontier Communications and Time Warner Cable and Connecticut, which is served by AT&T and Comcast.  (Thanks to our reader Bob for sharing the news with us.)

The service works with your existing home wired and cordless phones.  Customers signing up under a one or two year service contract will receive the base unit free of charge.  Installation is as easy: Just unplug the phone cord from the wall and plug it into the back of the Home Phone Connect device.  The unit supports up to two hard wired (non-cordless) phone lines and a cordless phone base station.  When you pick up any phone around the house, the base station will deliver a familiar dial tone, but all calls are made and received over the Verizon Wireless cell phone network.  You can download an read a copy of the installation manual here.

The service is priced at $9.99 per month for existing Verizon Wireless customers with any existing Family SharePlan that has two or more lines with at least a 700 minutes calling allowance per month.  Customers using Home Phone Connect under this plan will use minutes from their existing wireless service plan.  But since calls to and from Verizon customers and all calls placed during nights and weekends do not eat minutes, this may be a viable option for many customers.

For heavy talkers, or those without a qualifying Verizon Wireless service plan, an unlimited talk time plan is available for a flat $19.99 per month.

All local and domestic long distance calls are included, and the service also comes with these features:

  • Call Waiting
  • Call Forwarding
  • Caller ID (not currently compatible with Caller ID + Name)
  • International Dialing (charged at prevailing Verizon long distance rates)
  • 3-Way Calling
  • Basic Voice Mail (*86)
  • Account Balance (*225)
  • Device Provisioning, (*228)
  • Account Payment (#786)
  • 311, 411, 511, 611, 711 & 911 (some services not available in all areas)
  • Last Number Callback (*69)
  • National Domestic Hope Line (#4673)

The base unit includes a backup battery to power the unit for up to 36 hours idle time/2 hours talk time in the event of a power failure.  Customers relying on landline service that works with a monitored alarm system should check with their alarm company to ensure compatibility with cell network technology.

Michael Murphy, Verizon’s public relations manager for the New England Region, said consumers have the option of keeping their existing home phone number or requesting a new one.  Customers who do switch their current home phone number to Verizon will automatically cancel their existing landline service.  Frontier customers should carefully check their bills to make sure they are not on a Frontier “Peace of Mind” contract before switching.  Any expiration dates adjacent to the type of home phone service described on your bill likely means you are on a term contract.

Customers dumping Frontier before their contract expires could be exposed to early termination fees of up to $300 or more, which will appear on a customer’s final bill.  If you did not authorize a service contract, demand that Frontier drop it from your bill before you switch, and follow up with a complaint to the New York Attorney General’s office if the company fails to comply.

The device is intended to be portable, so you can take your “home phone” with you to any area served by a Verizon Wireless signal.  Just pack the Home Phone Connect base station and take it along.

Verizon carefully chose test markets outside of Verizon landline service areas.  That allows them to pick up new “landline” customers without harming their own landline business.

Verizon Wireless has a very large share of the Rochester, N.Y., market because of its ownership of the legacy Rochester Telephone cellular network.  Verizon delivers far more robust coverage than any other regional cellular provider in western New York.  With a built-in customer base wide open to Verizon’s marketing machine, the phone company could grab a significant number of Frontier landline customers who will see significant savings over Frontier’s comparable landline feature plans that run close to $50 a month after taxes and fees.  The company could also poach a number of Time Warner Cable’s Digital Phone customers, especially those whose first year promotional discount has expired.

In Connecticut, Verizon is challenging AT&T, which provides most of the state with its landline service.  Comcast is the dominant cable operator.

Comcast seemed unimpressed with the challenge being raised by Verizon in its service area.  The cable company hinted Verizon’s lack of a bundled service option including phone, cable, and broadband would hurt its chances of success.

Indeed, Verizon will have to develop some creative marketing to make its Home Phone Connect stand out.  Younger customers have no landlines to switch.  Most of those eager to cut their home phone line have already moved to cellular or Voice Over IP services from their local cable company or other providers like Vonage.  Existing Verizon Wireless customers may be hesitant about using a service that burns their wireless minutes away.  Older customers are unlikely to understand the product and have a built-in resistance to dropping traditional phone service.  Many may resist the notion of being stuck with at least a one year contract for an untested service.

T-Mobile attempted to market an almost identical service under its @Home brand, but judged it a failure and disconnected it earlier this year.

Because the service is being test marketed, its availability is limited to selected Verizon Wireless stores:

The New Haven Register set up a video interview with a Verizon representative to demonstrate its new Home Phone Connect service. (1 minute)
