When you look at the two companies side by side, you will notice that Mediacom offers more variety on their plans. With the lower starting point, they will attract the budget-conscious shopper. The only issue is availability. Mediacom has a smaller footprint since it’s available in only 22 states. CenturyLink offers internet to 36 states, and their offering is on a fiber network in 21 of them.
Mediacom offers a decent television and cable internet combo. It’s not as good as CenturyLink, but it’s an excellent plan for those who want to have a bundle but want to save a buck. The primary concern again is their data caps. If you are an average user who doesn’t have a large family who streams in every room, then Mediacom will be your best choice. But if you are a gamer, data caps are going to give you a kill screen every time, so we recommend you go with CenturyLink.
