Time Warner Cable’s Advertised $89.99 Triple Play: Now $190.77. What the F@$#X$!?
This is my October 2014 Time Warner “Triple Play” bill. When I signed up, less than two years ago, it was advertised at $89.99 and today, less than two years later, the actual price is 110% more — now $190.77. Click for Full Size.

Worse, it is clear that there are ‘behind the scenes’ manipulations of the public going on — Verizon’s end result — Shut down any wireline obligations, push customers onto expensive wireless products and services, (which don’t have the same customer obligations) and cut deals with the cable companies, thus not competing.Verizon recently cut 336 NJ wireline employees who do repairs, has stopped expanding FiOS and has announced it is abandoning DSL.
This is not a New Jersey problem alone. It is a Verizon and AT&T problem as this is happening throughout America in almost every state.

READ THIS AND SAY: I Agree with New Networks Institute’s Comments — and anything else you want to add.
Stop the Phone Company Petition to Stop Supplying Data at the FCC — and Erase Your Rights.
Go here: http://teletruth.org/FCCpetition.htm
And please file comments at the FCC or sign onto our petition at change.org
The United States Telephone Association (USTA), the phone companies’ trade association, has petitioned the FCC (WC Docket No. 12-61) to essentially remove all requirements to supply information about AT&T, Verizon and the other phone companies’ business activities. This is known as “forbearance,” where the FCC has the authority to enforce the law but chooses not to do so.
This is the latest effort in an ongoing campaign to allow AT&T and Verizon to hide what they are doing by no longer disclosing basic financial information between and among the companies’ subsidiaries.
This means that your right to know what the companies are doing will be limited. You won’t know what the telcos are doing behind your back. Worse, this stops advocates or the government from knowing what these companies are doing. And if you haven’t read our latest report, showing massive manipulation of revenues and expenses to save billions on taxes, while not building out high-speed broadband/cable to ½ of the US and to raise your rates — because they can — we won’t be able to continue to out their wrong-doing without more data.
- · First, we requested the FCC stop the USTA Petition.
- · Second, we requested the FCC restore all previous requirements that have already been removed.
- · Finally, we demanded an investigation into the current business practices of AT&T and Verizon.—If you haven’t read our latest article on Huffington Post, Please Sir May I have Another, check it out at: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/bruce-kushnick/please-sir-may-i-have-ano_b_1434583.html
So please take a few moments and tell the FCC to Oppose the Phone Companies’ plan to erase the data and erase your rights.
