Free upgrade email
I am still renting my modem from Mediacom and I recently received an email about a free modem upgrade, because my current modem is old and outdated. My modem is an old DOCSIS 2 - Ambit U10C018.
Has anyone else that is still renting the modem received this email? I'm surprised that Mediacom is actually going around and trying to upgrade rented modems, especially after seeing posts on here about users getting the faster tiers that require the newer D3 modems and yet are given the runaround about not needing them.
This kinda makes me wonder if it is a sneaky way to get me off my grandfathered 12Mb no caps plan onto the newer capped plans. Sure, the email says free and no cost upgrade and since I'm already paying the rental fee anyway, then it seems like there would be no change whatsoever except for getting a new shinny modem. However, it seems like most companies have an ulterior motive and don't do things like this just for the heck of it.
After all, it's not like my service tier requires the more capable D3 modem, although from what I have read on here it would most likely help out by giving me faster downloads anyway. My current modem is working perfectly and I am not having any problems at the moment.
MediacomChad, do you have any info about this free modem upgrade offer?
