Re: Switching to mediacom today. What to expect?

said by evilbender :

Be prepared for disapointment. I live in Des Moines, IA and have Mediacom. We have been anxiously waitimg for Century Link to up the speed in our area. First I pay $60/mo for a 10mbs connection and routinely only clocks around 6mbs mediacom assures me ik not being throttled and the techs claim no issue at my home. We routinely spend around 1 week a month of combined time down. They price like they're the only game in town, steer clear is my recommendation.

Depends. I wouldn't say "Be prepared for disappointment" because, in our market, Mediacom has been rock solid for us. Very few outages, speeds as advertised, and with Mediacom Chad's help, any issues are resolved quickly. That's not to say you won't have problems where you are, and, certainly, there are Mediacom markets where there are issues that we don't have in the Quad Cities. My only gripe is that their pricing is too high for the services. But, if that's what we have to pay for solid, dependable service, then I'll pay for it...
