    Does anyone here use Time Warner Cable Internet (preferably in California)?
    How are your speeds?
    Do they have reliable connection?

    I am looking to make the switch from ATT dsl.

    I have them, located also in California. Speeds and connections are good. Have only had one issue with them once where they went offline for about 3 hours. I've been with them for a few years now.

    I grew up in the I.E....Redlands/San Bernardino area.

    How much do you pay for your 15mbps connection?

    I might make the switch sooner than later then.

    Are you guys able to change IP address easily?

    Thanks for the replies.

    Had TW in a couple different states and never had a complaint, other than cost. It's a great internet service.

    IP changes are done via a script easily enough..but the IP pool is suprisingly small for some reason. I live in a big city but I always get the "IP has recently been used" errors. I use my own private proxy source now. Another thing with cable posting is, the modem usually locks up after about 15-30 minutes of use so you have to manually reboot it to get it working again. Anyone else have a small IP pool with TWC RR?

    yea from what I've heard cable has smaller IP pool than DSL. speed, go w/cable, IPs, stay with dsl prob. i have RR in FL, it's been reliable.
