Oceanic Time Warner to Increase Monthly Fee for Internet Modem

Many folks are turning off the TV and watching things online instead of subscribing to cable services.

Well it looks Oceanic Time Warner is going to attempt to make up much of their losses on lost customers that are switching over to watching things online.

Did you read the small print in your bill this month?

Beginning next month, they are going to be upping their monthly fee to $5.99 each month for each subscriber who uses their modem,

Anyone also note that the notice on the bill was so small… that you could barely even read it!

Oceanic Time Warner RoadRunner is Sucking Today

Well Oceanic Time Warner RoadRunner service seems to be taking a hit all over the State of Hawaii right now.

I started noticing the problem last night as well as folks all over the Big Island.

Now I’m hearing reports that Oahu is also very slow today.

You can try your own “Speed Test” that Oceanic technicians use themselves to test your speeds of uploading and downloading rates by checking this site: Oceanic Time Warner Speed Test

The first test I did at 8:10 gave me these download and upload transfer rates:

Download Speed: 16762 kbps (2095.3 KB/sec transfer rate)

Upload Speed: 895 kbps (111.9 KB/sec transfer rate)

The next reading I took at 8:26 gave me these transfer rate speeds:

Download Speed: 17153 kbps (2144.1 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 949 kbps (118.6 KB/sec transfer rate)

And this final reading I took at 8:30 gave me these rates:

Download Speed: 15208 kbps (1901 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 930 kbps (116.3 KB/sec transfer rate)

So if you want to check yourself what type of speeds you are getting… I’d be interested to hear.
