I’ve decided to do something that I didn’t think I would be forced to do but I’ve had enough with Time Warner and Comcast making me pay so much for my cable bill that I’ve cut the cord. I’m done with them at last and you know what? I’m happy because of it.

I personally cannot believe that they have even lasted as long as they have. It’s time for something new to come along to force them into direct competition. Without any competition they are allowing themselves to stagnate since they don’t have any reason to try new and radical ideas.
