Charter’s on the Block

There are guys wearing hardhats climbing up the power poles across the street. They are Charter Communications sub-contractors. They are removing the cable that upstart Altrio put in. The guy tells me that the cable he is removing is more advanced than the cable he is leaving behind. Thanks, Charter. Nice to know how you’re using my/our money.

The guy I was talking to was pro-DirecTV. Gee, buddy, you’re working for someone who has a contract with Charter. Maybe talking up the competition isn’t such a good idea.

Anyway, back to DirecTV. They do have the Tennis Channel (which I would love to have), but I’m relying on the experience of those who have taken that path then turned back.
