Just as my cable-modem bill increased to $42 per month, my cable-modem service
started getting horrible. Connection is very spotty: internet access seems to
come and go on a minute-by-minute basis, and is sometimes very fast and sometimes
incredibly slow. I’ve now started getting weird error pages from Earthlink,
too, like this
one when I try to reach an Amazon page.
So, is there an alternative? Earthlink is nothing more than a rebranded Time
Warner Cable, so there’s no point in switching to Roadrunner. And I don’t have
a landline (I use Vonage), so DSL doesn’t really seem to be an option. Or, is
there a known issue with cable-modem access in NYC which is likely to be resolved
at some point?
