Just days after getting dinged by Netflix (NFLX) for having one of the slower cable Internet services out there, Time Warner Cable (TWC) has announced plans to increase download speeds for its Standard Internet service by 50%, from 10Mbps to 15Mbps. Time Warner Cable says that all current “standard” customers will “get the speeds automatically when they are rolled out to your division,” so there’s no need to do anything extra to get faster web services. Netflix earlier this month released data on which ISPs delivered the fastest average Netflix streams and found that Time Warner Cable ranked seventh behind services such as Google (GOOG) Fiber, Verizon (VZ) FiOS and Comcast (CMCSA).
