LOS ANGELES » Time Warner Cable Inc. is doubling the Internet speeds of its fastest product and more than halving the price of its lowest-speed product to compete with its telecom rivals AT&T and Verizon.

The nation's second-largest cable TV provider is now doubling the download speed of its top-tier "Ultimate" service to 100 Megabits per second. The new speed upgrade is being rolled out now to customers in Los Angeles and Hawaii and will come to New York City by the end of the year. The "Ultimate" tier costs $105 per month without promotional pricing.

On the bottom end, the New York-based company is doubling the download speed of its "Lite" product to 2 Mbps and dropping the price without promotions to $15 per month from $35 per month.

Hmm, just paid my bill and it did not reflect the changes. Maybe next month? The price break would be nice along with the faster download speed. Let's see it.

Nice but this is how Oceanic describes their Lite package: "Great for the occasional Internet user. A good choice for checking email and doing a light amount of web surfing - at a budget-friendly price" ...Lite doesn't cut it.

I suspect that we will not get the higher speed nor will we be given a price break. That is just simply not the "kama'aina" way where price gouging is the way of doing business here. Just ask Pizza Hut and all the local franchises here.

Pizza hut? They tried to change their name a few years ago to just 'The Hut' so they could offer more than pizza delivery. As you can tell, we know how that turned out... Haven't eaten their stuff in over a decade. Diarrhea, cha, cha, cha.

Speaking of Oceanic, many will notice that their prices have gone up. Many who have dropped HBO a while back will notice that they are still paying close to what they were paying with HBO. You should check your cable bill if you dropped that movie premium package because you might be surprised at how much you are paying for no movie channels.

Yes, they just upped the internet, and modem rental fees earlier this year with nary a notice. Had to call and complain to cancel in order to get it back to where it was. TWC evil.
