I have made a deal with TWC. It made me step back a bit, and perhaps not so pleased because so far as I can tell, helps only me, but I have had some fellow residents not so happy I brought the subject up.
So I am getting my box, and have signed up as a customer, but promised no credit check will be done, and I will get five years free service (once I fill out the paperwork about the Medicaid that backs up my Medicare). I told the woman I spoke to that as soon as I get my box up and running (and getting the channels I should be getting), I will notify the Federal Trade Commission that I withdraw my complaint.
Not my first choice, but probably my best choice.
Just letting you all know.
