Cable companies

#1
Who is your cable company?

Carmel has Bright House Networks, a spinoff of Time Warner Cable, created in 2003.

Most of the Indy suburbs, such as Noblesville and Fishers, have Comcast however (because they used to be served by Insight Cable until they sold their Indiana operations to Comcast).

Nice thread.

I'm with Time Warner Cable. They aren't the best either haha.

Carmel, Broad Ripple, and a few other Indy areas had TWC until they made Bright House Networks. I remember back in 2003, I had TWC cable TV and they started airing commercials saying "Time Warner Cable in Indianapolis is now Bright House Networks" or something like that, which is how I knew.

My grandparents in Crawfordsville, Indiana (west of Indianapolis, near the IN-IL state line) had Comcast (Crawfordsville had Insight until they sold their IN operations to Comcast) until the local power company started a local fiber ISP called Accelplus, and they got that.

I love their net. 40Mbps internet with 0ms ping to Chicago (10ms to Indianapolis, which I find weird).

40mbps isn't bad at all.

Yeah, they have the 20Mbps plan I'm pretty sure but CEL&P (the power company in Crawfordsville, IN) doesn't cap it, so it goes way over.

CEL&P's site says 20M down and 5M up is $60 (We pay $70 for 20/2 on BHN *mad that they pay less lol*): http://www.accelplus.net/ProductsService...netTV.aspx

That's quite expensive. I get about 0.6 mbps and I have no idea what I'm charged for it (TV + phone + internet is grouped together into one bill), but it's far too expensive for what I get.

My grandpa says they pay $90-120/mo for phone, power, net and TV iirc.

They got Accelplus when it first came out, so it's possibly a grandfathered rate.

Mine likes charging you more and removing more and more channels to place them into packages. So it's a double whammy.
