The company allegedly failed to deliver on several promises related to its merger with Time-Warner Cable (TWC).
In a bizarre twist to the story, it seems it was more than unfulfilled commitments that got Spectrum in trouble.
According to GamesIndustry.biz, this accusation refers to a 2017 lawsuit filed against Spectrum by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.
The complaint is a laundry list of allegations ranging from leasing customers “deficient equipment” to misleading subscribers regarding internet speeds.
“Revisiting earlier arrangements, in which Spectrum-TWC often exchanged data with backbone and content providers for free, Spectrum-TWC now sought to make those providers pay Spectrum-TWC for access to its subscribers.
Spectrum did this by deliberately limiting port capacities to content providers unless they paid for the connections.
The squabble continued between 2012 and 2014, during which time Spectrum never informed customers why their access to Netflix was subpar. »
