60Mbps Is Pretty Hot And Tempting


May 26, 2009 – Sigh… my only cable choice is Time Warner, and the best download speed I get is about 15Mbps.

I really envy you guys in St. Louis, and everywhere else Charter is. Yes, they sponsored this post, but seriously, I’d write about this anyway.

Phatband For The Masses!

The more I learn about Charter the more I wish I could use their services. First I discover their 10 Grand giveaway, and now this. With 60Mbps the internet acts like it’s right there on the desktop.

Charter’s Ultra60 Mbps service is one of the fastest in the US, and definitely the fastest Internet speed in St. Louis. Charter plans to roll-out the Ultra60 service to other areas along with other high-speed products throughout 2009.

The Ultra60 Mbps service is part of Charter’s plan to provide customers with the fastest Internet speed available. With such a large percentage of web traffic going to sites like Youtube and Hulu, it’s critical to have a high-speed connection.

Ultra-Phat, Ultra-Fast

Providing speeds up to 60Mbps, customers can use the Internet in new and developing ways including gaming, movies, telecommuting with mega-files and much more at super high speeds. At these speeds, the Internet is a completely different experience – you can multitask the web in ways you’ve been wishing for, for years.

Hard-core gamers are going to love this. Downloading patches and game updates take less than half the time. And lag? Fuggetaboutit!

Charter’s Ultra60 Mbps service is the first of the Phatband speeds that Charter will be rolling out. With speeds overseas already topping 100Mbps, you can bet the Charter experience is only going to get better. Still, Charter’s PhatBand has already turned DSL into the new dial-up Internet service.

The next level of broadband is here. Check it out over at the Ultra60 Information Page.

Win 10 Grand – Charter On Demand

Disclaimer: (May 22, 2009)This post is sponsored by Charter. I’m (currently) a Time Warner customer. I can’t win.



This is going to be short and oh so sweet, because you have just days to get entered in Charter’s latest contest. The contest is open only to Charter customers, so if that is you, read on!

Charter customers can win $10,000 or one of four 52″ Sony HDTVs just by dropping by over at the Win 10 Grand Contest Page and answering the weekly trivia question. (Charter customers: click that link up there and play!)

You want to go ahead on over there now, so you can go back again next week and get another entry. I know the 10 Grand looks good, but there’s a better chance that you’ll win the HDTV IF you enter more than once! This late in the month, the best you can do is to make 2 entries, so like I said, go now.

How Easy Does It Get?

All you gotta do is answer a trivia question about Charter’s On Demand service. That’s it! Go back again a week later and answer another trivia question. To break it down into technical terms, here it is:

Step 1: Go to the Win 10 Grand Contest Page

Step 2: Answer this week’s trivia question.

Step 3: Win!

Charter On Demand

Charter On Demand boasts an immense list of over 6000 titles, including new releases. If you poke around just a little bit, you’ll find free shows as well as the regular premium offers. It’s worth spending a few minutes there.

Of all the big cable companies in the US, Charter appears to be working the hardest to join the social world of the developing web. Back in April, they gave away HDTVs, including a grand prize of a home theater system and one year of free Charter Digital Cable® service with HD programming. In 2008 it gave away laptops and Xbox 360 game systems. One really lucky customer drove away in a 2009 Honda Civic Hybrid.

Keep up with everything Charter has planned. Follow Charter’s Twitter Feed!

Now, get over there and play! Time’s a’wastin!
