I live in a remote area of California. When national shows, (American Idol for example) come on there is a sync problem at the local sub-station. The entire town, and many people (including myself) have been to the local Charter office to try to get it resolved. The local office says they are aware of the problem but that Charter won't fix it because it is too expensive to fix for an area with as few subscribers as we have. The problem has now been going on for at least 4 years. It renders many nationally televised programs unwatchable.
Has anybody else encountered this sort of problem, and were you able to get it resolved - and how? Is anyone out there from Charter HQ monitoring the message board? We are just fed up, but there is no other cable service for the area, and satty is a tough go around here due to cloud cover....
You really hit the nail on the head. Malls are on the way out due to demographic changes, and those with money (non thugs) don't feel safe shopping there anymore. Guess that makes eBay and Amazon that much more attractive.
You are right on the money. AT&T did the same thing years ago with pay phones. When cell phones were 5 or so years out, they started selling all pay phones as a 'business opportunity' - and people bought 'pay phone routes'. AT&T is looking for the latest set of chumps to defray the costs of the towers. That isn't the only problem with this company, it is a tax-deferred REIT, with a very low payout. Investors are going to get soaked on this one.
