TWC Maxx - Manhattan 10014 active
Guys, I've been lurking on AVS forum for a couple months eagerly waiting for news about TWC Maxx in NYC, this thread has been the best source of information, so I wanted to contribute. I got the fabled letter titled "we're moving you to a better internet plan..." I checked the modem compatibility guide at twc.com/bettertwc which was included with the letter and I noticed that there is a new approved modem on the TWC 300Mbps list, it is the Netgear C6300, which has an integrated router and 802.11AC wifi. Bestbuy has them in stock at the union square location, so does Amazon. If you own your own modem, This is the only alternative to the backordered Motorola/Arris SBG6183 which nobody seems to have in stock.
In turning it up I noticed that 2 of my upbound channels are unbonded, the other two have been struggling between TDMA and ATDMA, at first I could only get 10mbps upload, but now I am able to get 20. TWC level 3 support says all 4 channels should be bonded, so they are deploying a cable tech to repair cable wiring tomorrow.
