This may be surprising, but most Americans really don’t like their cable companiesCNET reports that research firm Temkin Group has just released a massive customer satisfaction survey of around 10,000 American consumers and has found that pay TV companies account for the six of the seven worst-rated companies in the United States. Charter Communications, Time Warner Cable, Cox Communications and Cablevision all had customer satisfaction ratings of below 30% while Comcast and Verizon’s pay TV services both had ratings of exactly 30%. The Temkin survey follows a survey earlier this year from the American Consumer Satisfaction Index that showed American ISPs, led by cable providers Comcast and Time Warner Cable, had the lowest customer satisfaction of any industry in the United States, including airlines and health insurance companies.
