Is there any way that your service can be adjusted so that the upload bandwidth
can be increased? I'm not looking to run a server or anything, but occasionally
I'll want to run a game server (X-box 360 or PC) and with only a 256kbs upload
speed, the number of players it supports is terrible. I would be willing to
sacrifice some of my download bandwidth to do it.

I don't much care for their customer service either. I recently subscribed, and when I called it in, I was going to say a friend from this area referred me, so that he could get a little off his bill. They told me they didn't do that anymore... that they had stopped taking referrals last year.

Then, I found out that while digital cable was cancelled, cable internet referrals weren't. BUT, since I didn't go through the normal referral program BEFORE I signed up, I lost my chance to save him some cash.

It didn't help that it took 3 Emails for the service rep to figure out that I was the one referred, and that I had already signed up for service.

At least you still have Charter. Charter in my neck of the woods sold out to Wave Cable a Canada company and since my service is sh*t.

Although I did have canadian DNS for the first 3 weeks after the switch until I emailed them asking if it was now OK to download music to my hearts content as it's not illegal in canadia. The promptly fixed it.
