Internet has dropped twice this month and it's only the 7th. Super frustrating when I have homework that needs to be done and am in the middle of it. Prices are fair for a service that is unreliable.

I had NO idea that I was being charged separately for wifi/ cable. When I went to At&t for cell phone. I'm not satisfied with the 3 bills I'm getting. I should have stayed with Mediacom and Straight talk. Thought they would be better but they are worse. Live and learn. I thought I was paying for both as bundle come find out only paying for one. So wifi been disconnected. This terrible my cable/ wifi have never been turned off before. Until I go with At&t

I don’t know who needs to hear this, but when you are finally getting to cancel this sorry service, make sure to cancel before a new billing cycle begins because they will not prorate your bill. On top of that if it’s conveniently right when your year ‘promotion’ is up be prepared to pay the inflated price for service you won’t even be using.

Matt A | 07-06-2015

Mediacom internet is a reliable company, with high speed (sometimes requiring you to talk to their support staff to fix connection speed issues), but they have recently introduced data usage caps which leads to overage charges. Once you go over, you pay for each 50 GB block of data you consume. If you're over by 5 GB, that's one block. If you're over by 50.001 GB, that's 2 blocks. Many users won't hit their cap, but family homes with people who stream video and play video games online and download the games from the internet will be up against the data cap each month and will have to cut back to avoid overages.
