Huh?

We've had 15x1 (18x1 last year) for awhile now. CV is updating that to 30x5.

Re: So montannah Utah and colorado

The same fate should come for mediacom. They are terrible service provider. Internet slow downs at nights, poor programming and vod, DVr, old boxes. No dsl, no iptv that would compete. In my area even directv can't compete with tv, because their beloved slut landlords don't allow dishes anywhere where I rent. And I don't live exactly in the place where You would want to own house.

Re: So montannah Utah and colorado

You know the CEO of Mediacom Rocco B Commiso used to work for Cablevision so it may happen that Mediacom is bought by them.

I'm in the same boat as you, Windstream or Mediacom so I choose the bad vs the revolting.

Changing from CV

is CV trying to rebrand everything as Optimum? Their East Coast site even states everything as Optimum and nothing about Cablevision.

A Beavis and Butthead moment

I read this re-branding and all I can think of is a quote from Beavis and Butthead;

Remember you can't polish a turd,
Ya Ya but it would be cool if you tried.

Re: Changing from CV

Cablevision is the company, Optimum is the product. Just like Coca-Cola is the company, and Barq's root beer is the product.

Re: Changing from CV

maybe true but on Optimum West's website there is NO mention of CV. It's "Optimum".

The only mention of CV on the regular Optimum website is a Copyright 2011 CSC Holdings, LLC.

There are probably legal reasons for doing it that way.

Exactly where I'd expect to find it.

Switching to new package soon..

Well.. from what it sounds like.. To benefit from the new speeds you need to call them and switch to the "Optimum" package. We currently have Bresnan's Speed Plus package (15x1) and it's rather nice. I did hear that the new package is (30x5) which would be rather sweet.

I'm a bit surprised they don't auto-update everyone to the new packages, though.. I can't wait until they push the update through so I can get a new baseline.

Re: Switching to new package soon..

I think it is because a truck roll is required. See my post here for more info: »Re: New Speeds!

Re: Switching to new package soon..

Hmm.. Wonder why a truck roll is required. I thought all they were doing was pushing an update.

I'll ask around here and hopefully get a few answers.

Re: Switching to new package soon..

They upgraded what was the Boost tier (30/5) to Boost Plus (50/8). I'm guessing Bresnan didn't upgrade their system to DOCSIS 3 yet. You'll love the even faster speeds to come. We just hope we get the channels that Bresnan got that us over here in the original Optimum territory don't have transfers over our way.

They have been updating to DOCSIS 3 in some areas. I think Billings is one of them.

Hopefully Cablevision will speed the rollout across the former Bresnan footprint up a bit more.

I just upgraded from 8000/384kbit to 15/2mbit. I had to call them to upgrade. It cost me an extra $1.50/month due to small differences in price structure, but I think a near doubling in my download a 5x increase in my upload is well worth a $1.50.

Good load!
Mediacom are you listening! Going from 3-12 Mb is a huge jump and iId love for them to offer a performance plan like Comcast where you can get 5 or 6 mb for $30
