I have noticed more outages and higher latency since Cox took it over 
from RoadRunner.

When Cox took over they raised our monthly rate by $5.  Now, (started 
October 1st) they raised it by another $5 and did away with our $10 
discount for having the limited tier cableTV package.  Now, you can only 
get the discount if you have the extended tier or higher package.

When Cox took over the HSI they also raised our digital 
packages....that's when I took my (2) boxes back to them and just got 
limited cable and reactivated DirecTV.

Since, they did away with the $10 discount I canceled my limited cable 
and bought an antenna.  And guess what?  Channels 3, 10, 12, 24, 33 & 36 
are clearer with my antenna than they were with cable.

Let's recap:  Before Cox took over the HSI I was paying $29.99 a month. 
 Now, approx. 7 months later I am paying $49.99.  That's a 66% increase 
in a little more than half a year.  Man, I wish I could get that kind of 
pay increase at my job.

So, why hasn't broadband taken off like wildfire......could it possibly 
be the high PRICE.
