Charter: ‘Plain, downright bull’

To the editor:

With the flick of a switch, Charter Communications took their customers back 40 years.

They claim to be at the forefront of communications — cable, phone and Internet — yet in the blink of an eye they went back to the dark ages.

I have outfitted my home one room at a time with state-of-the-art, flat-screen, cable-ready televisions. Now, out of the blue I have to put a box on each TV in order to get their broadcast.

That is plain, downright bull.

I am presently changing Internet providers and hooking up a new TV antenna for what I can grab out of the air. My televisions in my beautiful home now have wires hanging out and boxes sticking out from behind, wedged between the wall and the TV.

This is criminal. Charter Communications should be ashamed of itself! I sincerely hope everyone in this area drops their service. I certainly am.
