Great Speeds

Signed up for Mediacom after having a very slow and nonfunctioning DSL connection. Had to wait for them to run a line to my area but all in all well worth getting cable connection. Right from start have had a 58 Mbps download and 6 Mbps upload consistently. What I signed for is 50 Mbps/5 Mbps so am receiving a little higher rate. Have only had 2 calls to support and the connection was fixed quickly. Both times it was in their plant so no one needed to come to house.

Great performance, Fishy pricing

I have been satisfied by the uptime and performance of Mediacom broadband for many years. The pricing strategies are not straightforward (which is a complaint I have for this whole industry).

Worst Service Ever

I have been with Mediacom as there is no other alternative. My modem needs to be reset three times daily. The modem has been changed, used Mediacom modems as well as personal with no improvement. Customer service is ok but internet speed of 100 gives you 15, 20 if lucky and speeds of 60 give you 8, 10 if lucky. Stuck in quick sand.

Too expensive

Due to financial concerns I am thinking about dropping my cable service and keeping internet. I was told my internet would be $89/mo. That is ridiculous since I have a friend that pays $49. I don't use the phone but am paying for it. If I could get it for $49 I would be happy. I have also been losing service on a regular basis and have to go back and unplug the modem.

Great ISP

I haven't had Mediacom before and was so surprised at how satisfied I am with this cable company. I would recommend it to anyone.

Mediacom bad

Over 2 years now, bad connection speeds, slow, high ping. I have been kicked from gaming because of high ping and slow speeds. Mediacom will fix temporarily, then go down again and again and again. Cannot get them to fix permanently.

Poor customer service

Service is fine as long as it is working. If there is a problem, it has proven difficult to get it fully addressed on 2 separate occasions.

Price high for the speed available, slows down during prime time, works fine for streaming all the time.

Not good

I am a gamer, and when my mother purchased internet service from Mediacom, she asked if it would be strong enough for me to play video games and her to watch Netflix at the same time. The man said yes, so we believed him. After having it for almost 3 months. I hated it, and my mother didn't want to change providers. So basically my family has been living under a rock because we can't connect to anything, not even Google. Also, when the power goes out, Mediacom goes out for at least 1 day which they don't even compensate you for. If you are planning on getting this service, think again.

Inconsistent speeds.

The internet service is great during the day (non-peak hours); however, evening or slight peak hours diminish from 80-90% (100 Mbps to 1 Mbps). Service tends to try to blame these fluctuations on the modem or wireless connection in the home wireless. However, the correlation between time of day and speed is very clear and consistent, despite an upgrade in Modem. That is not suggestive of a "in home" problem.

The speed is very good but customer service is very bad.
