Brighthouse Cable

Brian Carter, acupuncturist, herbalist, and author

Brighthouse Cable Road Runner high speed internet is one reason why most Central Floridians are happy with Brighthouse. And let me tell you as someone who uses the internet for 8-15 hours most days, high speed cable internet is indispensable!

Hey, I remember the days when a 2400 baud modem was fast. Heh. Now I can't stand dial ups. And if you get an HDTV, you're going to need Brighthouse Cable for the picture...!

Why is Brighthouse Cable Road Runner so good? It gives faster download, upload, page loading times – up to 50 times faster than a 56K modem. Brighthouse Cable Road Runner provides an always-on Internet connection – no need to dial any number. Brighthouse Cable Road Runner services free up phone line – receive calls and surf the web at the same time! Brighthouse Cable Road Runner, you have enough speed to hook up more than one computer to the broadband connection so the whole family can experience the Internet.

But, according to one customer report, Brighthouse Cable isn't perfect. "I just wanted to let you know how terrible I think Brighthouse in Florida is. We ordered cable internet over two weeks before we moved...On the first appointment for the install, nobody showed... Two weeks later we hadn't heard from them so we called again...The installer comes and says he has some bad news. The cable head that we use isn't wired. It is wired to every other house on the block but mine... He then tells me that the satellite is using both wires coming into the house and he has to CHARGE me to run the wire...At that point I threw him out...We have to wait through Brighthouse's screw ups yet the have the nerve to charge me for my inconvenience."

But who is perfect? Moving is stressful, blah blah blah. My humble advice to this angry customer is: get over it, and add NBA league pass to your Brighthouse cable setup. Watching lots of NBA makes everything better.

I'd say the only really weird thing about Brighthouse Cable is that either they think all their customer families look like the one in the background (picture from their website), or there's some kind of weird ray shooting out of their TVs that causes you to go colorblind and get strange decorating impulses.
