[OT] Mediacom Facebook page

The folks over at the Mediacom facebook page are being ripped a new one over these enforced caps.

·Socket Internet ..

Well deserved. I have people at home bitching at me about it (I'm the in-house internet tech). I'm working on other options for internet (Socket dedicated metro-E is top of my list). Mediacom is about to lose a $5k/mo contract for this lame bullshit, as we'll most likely drop TV for another provider as well...

Caps are coming to every ISP, it's just a matter of when. Since most already have them, it's more a "when" they'll start to enforce them.

I imagine a day when they will phase them out. loss of revenue will eventually rule the day i would think.
Get us hooked on speed an unlimited then yank the proverbial rug out from under us.
As more and more items use data i just can't imagine this will last. Could be wrong, have been before.

Which is why we're looking at metro-e... it's expensive, but it's our pipe to do with as we wish.

Stop cheerleading bandwidth caps already. Your logic is exactly the reason these companies get by with this.

I have socket DSL (20/1) with a phone line for $100/mo. We don't have a quote on the metro-E yet (they're looking into getting us our own CMTS as well, but we're looking at at least 100Mb symmetrical with our own traffic management)
