Time Warner Cable Won't Be Charging Customers Who Lost Service During Sandy

That's right -- if you lost cable, Internet or phone services during the hurricane, TWC will automatically credit your account. It will show up on your bill as "Hurricane Sandy Credit." 

This is now the second thing that Time Warner has done this week that has made us reconsider our passionate hatred for them.

Wherin Time Warner Cable Finally Did Something That Didn't Make Us Want to Punch Them 

Time Warner's Photo Proof of Said Kind Gesture

We here at FiPS have never been shy about our hatred for Time Warner Cable. But even we got a little verklempt-y upon getting this email from a Time Warner rep, which has made us hate them slightly less:

"As you may or may not know, last week Time Warner Cable deployed mobile stations around NYC to allow people without power to charge up their phones, use our WiFi, laptops and iPads, etc.

Shared Hatred for Time Warner Will Make Patrick Stewart Your BFF 

"We hate all the same things!" (via subspacecomms.com)

Ever since the baddest, baldest, bardiest Star Trek captain ever joined the USS Park Slope Enterprise this summer, I know we've all longed for only one thing: to become his best friend. 

Well, fair Park Slopers, I've got a foolproof plan. Hear me out.

First, the background, as reported on Betabeat: Professor X himself sent out a psychic emanation (read: tweet), elegantly bitch-slapping one of our most be-hated institutions -- Time Warner -- for totally dicking him around re: his cable. 

Twatted the Shakespearean: "All I wanted to do was set up a new account with @TWCable_NYC but 36hrs later I've lost the will to live."

Then, he killed himself. (Jk! Suicide jokes!)

Time Warner, realizing that you can't treat famous, rich gentrifiers the way you treat average gentrifiers went on to apologize (both within and without the fluttery blue wings of the twitterverse).

We're All In This Together: CABLE-N-INTERNET

Have you ever wondered how any of your annonying monthly bills compare to other people's annoying monthly bills? Well we did. This week we're tackling: CABLE. 

Trust me: I realize that I'm one of the chosen people. And I'm not talking about being Jewish...I'm talking about living in Park Slope and having Verizon FIOS. And so I know that my cable bill may look nothing like many of YOUR cable bills. But, still the whole thing got me curious.

We all pay scads of dough to many of the same utilities and I'm wondering if any of our asses are getting jacked!? So I thought we could have a big ole Park Slope show-and-tell and kick things off with our cable/internet bills.

Verizon Fios vs. Time Warner?

I recently came across this thread on Brooklynian by detour, who was looking for some advice on Fios vs. Time Warner in Park Slope.

As you all know cause I won't STFU about it, six months or so ago I switched from TW to Fios and yes ppl: that move has been L-I-F-E  C-H-A-N-G-I-N-G. So much so that I wanted to, yet again, encourage ANY OF YOU BTCHZ who have the opp to do so to run, not walk over to the Fios Club and ditch TW like a bad rash.
