Thanks for the information on
the connecticut system Are those phone line numbers
for residential or for commercial. From what I
understand the commercial launch in CT happened close to 2
years ago. When will we hear some sales, revenue or any
success numbers in relation to that launch. How many
sales personnel are out on the street, how is the
backlog and how is the response from customers.
1000 lines of what have been sold. Are you speaking
directly from the residential side.
Unlike the LI
system there is true competition in the CT market and
has been for years. I think we need to find out how
CVC is holding up against the competition. Lets not
forget that telephony services IE. VOICE, DATA and
INTERNET, was supposed to be the future, how about we find
out how the future is doing. I have heard some things
but would like to hear from you.
Its good to here some stats from the inside of
I think the company could improve on the pr
front. Instead of not hearing anything from them about
new services, they should continually overexagerate
every move or launch they make. Why not the strategy
has worked so far for Cisco and some others.
Cablevision in Massachusetts sucks , almost every media one
town has high speed access and digital tiers . I dont
believe any CVC sites offer either , not too good
considering they franchise like 50 towns including Boston.
Richard only cares about public access because he
works in that field. I can understand his concern, I
really do. But frankly, I don't care....Public Access
does not make me money, but my 120% return to date on
CVC lines my pocketbook. Hell, I live in a CVC
community and refuse to buy cable service due to the high
pricing. But, I'll make money off the idiots....Heck, I
don't smoke but Philip Morris stock has been very good
I can talk for
conneticut system It is running very well.
Phone is up
and running in Norwalk for testing, so far so
allready have close to 1000 lines. PC on line is
DO not support business or home base
business.Problem on that possibly @ home problem not a technical
side.Waiting time for service call video part is same day or
next day.phone part is useally same day,pc on line it
should not be 2 weeks it is unexpectable.about
complaints 1994 1997 because they lunch the new produckt
system was upgraded from 450mhz to 750mhz channel line
up was changed, added 50 more channells ,call valume
should be up in call centers .That was exeptable at that
time . Now avarege waiting time is 30 seconds in call
centers.Possibly lunching digital service 2nd quarters of
2000.open your mind it is not going to be analog system
100-120 ch capacity .It will be
mail,shopping etc.it is good place to invest your money.
I would think that complaints being up over 50%
is insignificant fact considering they built a new
system in the bronx/brooklyn NY that serves 500k subs
and passes probably 5 million people. When you build
or rebuild your customer service volume going up 50%
is probably near normal.
What is the point
of your slams , do you care about the stock or are
you just here to rank on cvc ?
According to the State of New York.
Cablevisions consumer complaints are up OVER 50%, between 1994
and 1997, wonder what it is NOW? <compared to
