2. My internet used to absolutely SUCK with Cablevision. It would lose connection constantly, the connection would be slow when it did exist, etc. Haven't had a problem with Fios at all, and it's faster.
3. If you press a button on the Cablevision remote, there's a distinct and annoying lag in the response time, to the point where you push it, think it's not responding, and then push it again, and it suddenly registers both those commands rapidly. It's especially awful if you want to scroll quickly through channels because rather than scrolling at the pace you want, it just stores how many times you pushed the button...which, if you're impatient, like me, or just think that because of the lag, it's not working, is incredibly irritating.
Lol you're right. For such a small thing when talking about Television service, the menu lag is downright awful...*press button...waits 3 seconds*. Also the CV guide is from 1989 and needs to be redone ASAP.
