When will you guys provide better upload speeds? I just moved to San Antonio and 5MB is really slow.
I had Verizon FiOS 300/65MB and the upload was faster than my download here.
If you guys don't want to provide faster speeds for download, at least provide better upload.
Also when doing speed tests I always get around 50MB down and 5MB up. I understand there are factors that can't be controlled, but again with FiOS I would always get 330MB down and 80MB up.
It's time to upgrade, Google Fiber is right around the corner.

Fios I believe is Fiber Optics which is faster. May not be availible where you are now. Personlly I would like that here, but 100 is the fastest I have too.
As for upload, TWC seems to have a standard 10% upload (50Mb/5Mb, 10Mb/1Mb,ect). For home, that really is not bad, but as networks become dependent on more, I agree it should increase in the future.

That is not bad? Really?
If you have 10 computers/phones/tablets/etc it is nothing.
And the upload is really slow. I need to upload many files and 5Mb is way too slow for it.

For the average user, it's not bad at all. Home users classicly do not need upload for anything but sending requests and minor streams. True it's becoming more needed when people work from home and files get transfered, but that is not the norm as of yet.
5Mb/s is per second, so at best it you can upload a full CD in 18 min 40 sec.
As I view it, the issue is not that you have 10 computers, it's that your computers are constantly communicating, even if there is no need. I tend to be very strict on network traffic to prevent that very issue.

You should stop complaining. I live in california, and pay $70.00 a month for "turbo internet" from time warner. We get 29mb/s down, and 1.8mb/s upload. Can you say "sux"?

Why should I stop complaining? Me and you should be complaining to see if they will do anything. If not, we have to hope for companies like Verizon to decide to come to us lol
