Boy, That Didn't Take Long

This is funny:
Time Warner Cable (NYSE:TWC) today announced it would alter plans to test Consumption Based Billing, shelving the trials while the customer education process continues. Time Warner Cable Chief Executive Officer Glenn Britt said, “It is clear from the public response over the last two weeks that there is a great deal of misunderstanding about our plans to roll out additional tests on consumption based billing. As a result, we will not proceed with implementation of additional tests until further consultation with our customers and other interested parties, ensuring that community needs are being met. While we continue to believe that consumption based billing may be the best pricing plan for consumers, we want to do everything we can to inform our customers of our plans and have the benefit of their views as part of our testing process.”

LOL--"a great deal of misunderstanding." Well played, Spinman.

Ironically, the only thing that Time Warner has successfully done in the last two weeks is guarantee that I will leave them the day that Verizon FIOS becomes available in our area.
