The Internet keeps lagging more and more. Charter tries to say it's my router, but when I have just the Laptop connected, they say it's my laptop. Will be switching to either AT&T or Cynergy DSL as soon as I can.

All cable companies will blame your router or computer whenever you complain about the speed. The real reason is that they oversold the node. I realize that there are variables associated with speed tests but they do provide a good ballpark indication of what you are getting.

I use speed tests myself, but this isn't just low speed. When I try to surf, I timeout as often as I get through to the site. Tech support is as unhelpful as ever and several customers in my area are noticing it.

Isn't Charter in bankruptcy? What is Allen going to do with the company?

I had terrible problems with my internet about 2 weeks ago. I finally broke down and called Verizon and they made me reset my browser, router, etc..

Finally I had told the guy I can run some Tracert test to cnn.com and found it would time out at level3.net. The verizon tech alerted their network engineers and had to tell level 3 they had a problem.

My symptoms were websites would not come up every time. I could download very fast an long as the connection was established to the remote host. Dslreports speed test also showed a fast connection.
