Value for money:
(ratings match consensus)
I called and ordered CableOne's 50mbps service when I moved over a week ago. CenturyLink also offers service at my new address, however, the fastest speed that they offer is 20mbps.
When I called in the order, the Rep put down the wrong date for the install, so I ended up having to push the date back by a day. The installer who came over was very courteous, professional and helpful. He ran a new cable from their equipment to my modem, since my existing cable was about 20 years old.
The speed is fast and pretty consistent. I get around 50/2 most of the time. I'm just concerned with the 100GB Cap. I'm not sure how much NetFlix I'll be watching in the near future.
Netflix usage As long as you don't stream in High Definition (which is about 1GB per hour), you should be fine. Good quality runs about .2GB per hour.
The Data Usage Calcuator should give you some idea of your potential usage as well as accessing your current data usage at www.mycableone.com - My Account Settings. The 24 hour technical help line (1-877-692-2253) can also assist in checking your usage.
Re: Netflix usage Why should we have to call the number, or go online constantly to check our usage?? How about they just give us a much higher more reasonable cap?? We have the lowest cap of any ISP in the country other than the cell phone providers. That's ridiculous!
Re: Netflix usage You should be checking at least the bandwidth usage as you are on a metered plan. Now I do know internet usage has changed in the last few years, perhaps there would some modifications in the future.
Just to give you an idea, Cox will shut you down after 250GB as a one time thing then if you go over the limit again, your disconnected completely. At least here you pay for any additional usage that you have agreed on in the terms and conditions.
Re: Netflix usage LOL, try to charge me for overages and I will be the first to jump ship. I watch all my TV online and I am not going to be told other wise. Your meters at best are a joke. Show me a certified meter outside my house calibrated by our local Govt., then I will use your meters. Until then cableone can blow me and I will keep using the net the way I want , or until cableone tries to charge me overages. Bottom line is cableone wants you to pay for there overpriced tv , which you can find all those channels online for free.
Re: Netflix usage Ever since we started using netflix and hulu, we average about 220 GB a month.
100 GB is just waaay too low, and it's a joke to think that the modern family with internet TV can survive on 100GB.
