Time Warner Cable Launches PowerBoost to Road Runner Turbo Customers in North Texas

July 29, 2008

IRVING, Texas, July 29 /PRNewswire/ — Time Warner Cable North Texas today announced the launch of PowerBoost. PowerBoost is a new technology being deployed that allows Road Runner Turbo customers to temporarily experience download speeds significantly faster than their current speed of 10 Mbps. With PowerBoost, Turbo customers will see download speeds increase to 16 Mbps while downloading large files from the Internet when network capacity is available.

“We are very excited to be delivering the free, time-saving feature to our Road Runner Turbo customers,” said Robert V. Moel, North Texas Division President. “PowerBoost will jumpstart a large file download reducing overall download time, and giving users more time to enjoy the multitude of media available online, including that made available through RoadRunner.com.”

The speed provided by PowerBoost is in relation to the level of Road Runner service a customer is subscribed to. An example of PowerBoost speeds are as follows; Road Runner Turbo customers with a current speed of 10 Mbps will enjoy PowerBoost up to 16 Mbps. Once a PowerBoost is completed, a download in progress will continue at the normal provisioned speed.

PowerBoost is compatible with DOCSIS 1.1 cable modems and above. PowerBoost is also compatible with Time Warner Cable’s certified home networking devices. Customers can visit their local Time Warner Cable office or call customer care at 972-PICK TWC to make arrangements for their modem.
