I've never had Time Warner but I might, soon. Like most people here, I loved Verizon but what's the use of FIOS technology if you're switched (without warning) to a company that either a) doesn't know how to use it or b) knows how to abuse it? I've had digital speed throttling, missing channels, differing amounts charged on statements, no customer service and no one listens when you have a problem and you want assistance. And, let's not forget how, while you're on interminable hold, they boast that their customer service is based in the US but you get put through to someone who has an accent you can't cut through, and who uses the same phrases and responses they have memorized from a playbook. I have nothing against people who have accents, I find them charming, however when dealing with a customer it is imperative that the representative is capable of both understanding the customer and being understood by same. if Frontier hijacks your FIOS, RUN!

Time Warner Cable - 10x's better than Frontier. Ya. Frontier IS really THAT bad.

Three months of over billing by Frontier. Think it's straightened out each time but it never is. Asked for a supervisor & they said he would call back. Nope. No customer service at night (even though website says 24/7). Turned off all my premium (paid) channels one weekend for no reason. I loved Verizon for years and love FIOS but Frontier has had their last chance with me. Not looking forward to TWC but don't see a better solution. Not interested in satellite.

I currently have Frontier, formerly Verizon , in Florida. I AM FED UP AND TIRED OF FRONTIERS POOR CUSTOMERSERVICE, EVERY MONTH THEY SEND A DIFFERENT BILL FOR THE SAME SERVICE. I lost my caller ID, Whenever I call customer service generally result in "I can't help you" than they transfer the call to a non-existing department where you promptly get hung up on without ever making it to a live person. I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO CHECK MY MESSAGES. FRONTIER'S SERVICE IS TERRIBLE.

I currently have Frontier, formerly Verizon, in California. I don't know how bad TWC could be but Frontier is a dumpster fire. My phones havn't worked correctly for 2 months, I lost my caller ID, I keep getting error messages that the network is off line and calls to customer service generally result in "I can't help you" or the infamous transfer to a non-existent department where you promptly get hung up on without ever making it to a person. Do yourself a favor....take whatever deal anyone else is offering for a year or so and then check back. Verizon was great, Frontier is awful

I've lived here since 2009. I've had TWC twice, Verizon FiOS twice & the 2nd time (most current) is when it switched to Frontier Communications which is still FiOS. See my 1st comment below (Tex311). I said it then & I'll say it again; I'd never go back to Time Warner Cable for anything!! Even though I was pissed when Verizon was suddenly switched to Frontier without any warning; me & TWC do not get along! With Frontier (after the switch) I realized that I somehow had 2 account numbers, 1 was inactive with a credit & 1 was active with a balance due. I called (and was nice

Frontier, formally Verizon Fios, has come around. Tech came out with new DVR & their customer service calls are now going to their home office in Connecticut with English speaking reps. I think when they flipped the switch they were routing all calls to India which was the time period I was pissed & couldn't figure things out. But things are smoothing out to my approval. I'd never go back to Time Warner Cable for anything!!
