Charter Spectrum will soon charge you for a full month of service, even if you downgrade or cancel in the middle of a billing cycle, ending a decades-old practice of issuing a partial month credit for dropped services you no longer want or need. The financial benefit to Charter Spectrum is substantial, because customers will be forced to pay for a full month of service even if they cancel during the first week of a new billing cycle.
It led to a class action case against Cablevision, now owned by Altice USA, filed by an ex-customer. A ruling dismissed the class action case, compelling the plaintiff to use mandatory arbitration, required of all new subscribers. The final disposition of the case is unknown. Charter Spectrum maintains a similar clause in its own terms and conditions. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed.
I just got snookered by DTVs similar policy! Will never go back to them, ever. He called back and I said heck yeah it would have made a difference.
Spectrum is raising rates this month. Here's how you can push back.
I asked and asked Asian cystomer svc if they had any alternatives. Spectrum not prorating for services not used………. Do I smell a class action lawsuit in the making? They are doing this to us. And we still have them as a provider. We wanted new equipment, and a lower package from Gold to Silver. We called on the 3rd of August.
However they actually turned it off on the 4th. The day the bill was generated. So now they want us to pay both bills from both accounts for the same household but two different accounts. I am beyond angry. I totally agree. They did the same thing to me for the month of October I cancelled services on October 4, and they said I owe them for the entire month of October plus November 1st and 2nd. How in the world can this be legal! What is their billing cycle? Is it different for everyone?
I canceled October 30th, it was the soonest I could turn in equipment, actually stopped using the 29th. They told me billing was from October 14th to November 13th and I owed the whole month. They just sent the bill on the 13th and it was due the next day?. I think they are just getting an extra full month out of me. I agree. I told them to make the connections on the new local Nov.
I called explained that I still wanted the cable at old localafter trouble shooting 3 hours still no cable. I cancelled my service towards the beginning of November, the day after the bill came out, and they credited the entire month back to my account.
Thanks for your note. I have been explained their non prorated policy that is unclearly placed on page 2 of their bills by 3 minions.

Bargain Finder. Businesses for Sale. Commercial Real Estate. Real Estate.I've noticed email interruptions during the last three days in the afternoon ET which is very unusal at least for me.Received a Piracy Warning from your ISP Heres What to do !
During the outage these 2 servers are not reachable by ping which my accounts use and I suspect is the problem. I have multiple accounts with same problem and verified outages with other roadrunner users during the same time period. The outages seem to last less than an hour then the servers become reachable again and email starts working. I'm aware it is a legacy email system but is still in production and until a proper decommision is done Spectrum owns it.
Like I said it has been solid and have only noticed a handful of outages over 5 years until the last 3 days. I don't think a help desk call would get to the root cause so perhaps one of the moderators could look into this. The problem is that Roadrunner email is a legacy TWC product that is no longer being supported by Spectrum.
While users who switch to Spectrum accounts can keep their TWC Roadrunner email, the service is provided only on an "as-is" basis with no more security updates and support enhancements to Roadrunner.
For best results, a switch to a free Web Mail provider will be accessible to you on any device with an Internet connection and always up-to-date in terms of security.
You will have it for life. Gmail, Yahoo Mail, and Outlook. Thank you for the reply and I assume you are not a Spectrum employee. I realize it is legacy and also use Gmail as I mentioned but is hard for me to believe with thousands of people on the platform they no longer address down email servers or provide any support at all to the platform. Yes, just a regular Spectrum customer like yourself. However, they no longer support the Roadrunner accounts.
Support meaning, that there will be no more features or security enhancements to Road Runner Email. There just won't be any new interface updates or new security features added to the legacy Roadrunner anymore, because of its age. Thanks again for your response maybe someone from Spectrum will see this and let the correct people know at least 2 of their email servers have had recent intermittent outages during the day so is probably unplanned.
Spectrum needs to know your City, State, and Zip to localze the aea where Roadrunner is being problematic at this time.

If the latest price hike is too much for you, you have several options.
Remember that Spectrum will not negotiate new promo packages as Time Warner did. Call Spectrum and ask about downgrading a tier, such as from their Gold to Silver, or Silver to Basic plan. Downgrade to internet only, and become a " cord cutter, " streaming Netflix and Hulu, for instance, and paying only for internet.
Thought the rate will go up after a year. Use a wire cutter, cancel cable, and hook up a TV antenna. If you truly cut the cord, use your phone's data plan for internet.
