Data Cap Issues and Video Streaming in Clive

Data collected by our market research team suggests that common providers use data caps for their residential Internet packages.

Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Clive

Fast but reckless; not a good value for internet

If it didn't stutter every minute, it would legitimately be the fastest your money can buy - music downloads like a breeze, movies download so quickly your computer doesn't even know where to put it yet, and games don't lag more than 60 ms; unfortunately, no amount of speed can alter the fact that the connection seemingly rolls a dice every minute to decide if it wants to stay stable or not; if you complain enough, you might get free movies for a month, but other than that, customer service more than likely will leave you on your own. When it works, it's very fast, but I'd like to start streaming again, and due to the fact that the connection blinks every other minute and forces all devices to figure out what just happened, means that I would have to restart the stream in the same manner every time it happens. I even tried reducing my computer's MTU size to 1. Literally just 1 byte of data per packet sent, just to see if it could at least reliably send 1 byte of data a time without any stutters; spoiler alert, it didn't. In fact, two out of the four single bytes sent didn't even make it to google.com when I pinged it, and that's not to say that I am the only one affected by this. My father works IT for a mass corporation and can no longer work at home reliably since he literally loses work every time the internet decides to not work. This "problem" manifests itself in many ways, the most notable ones being: -even though the ping is perfectly fine, i cannot reconnect to games -my dad loses his work -my dad cannot reliably connect to conference calls -my stream freezes -the internet doesn't work for the day or -the internet doesn't work, we don't know if it's for the day or week or month (yeah, it's happened) Overall, I give Mediacom a 5/10 - a barely average rating. If customer service didn't give any consolation prize at all, I would have made my customer service rating a 1/5. Reliability, as I have stated above, is a tragic 1/5. I would rather have stable internet than blazing fast internet in this case. Speed isn't an argument, it's a near perfect score. It is incredibly fast when it decides to work. Value is a 2/5, since stability is what makes fast speeds work, if we look at total speed taking into account the stutters, it's mediocre at best.
