How Mediacom compares to the competition

Mediacom seems like a steal for the first 12 months when we compare its Gigabit plan to similar ones from Xfinity, AT&T, and WOW! But after a year it becomes the most expensive of the four, costing up to $139.99 per month, depending on where you live. Plus, Mediacom has data caps you can’t remove with an additional fee like with Xfinity.

In our latest customer satisfaction survey, Mediacom ranks thirteenth out of 15 internet providers, placing it behind AT&T, WOW!, and Xfinity in overall satisfaction. It also ranks thirteenth in customer service and reliability, while its best ranking is eleventh for speed satisfaction. In contrast, Xfinity has the best speed score of the four in our survey, followed by AT&T.

Will Mediacom provide faster speeds than a gigabit?

Customers in Iowa should begin to see the benefits of Mediacom’s new 10G Platform by the end of July 2023. The company announced the transition from its hybrid fiber-coax (HFC) network to this new platform in February 2023, citing West Des Moines residents as the first to see faster download speeds and symmetrical speeds without the need for a fiber-to-the-home connection. According to Mediacom, customers soon will see the following:

  • All upload speeds increased to 100Mbps—the Internet 1 GIG plan included
  • A new Internet 1 GIG symmetrical tier with 1,000Mbps upload speeds

Mediacom has been slowly raising the download speeds of its three non-gigabit plans since early 2022.

What is the 10G Platform?

The 10G Platform is a project spearheaded by CableLabs to bring symmetrical 10Gbps speeds to cable internet subscribers. It uses a combination of technologies, including fiber optics and DOCSIS 3.1 and 4.0 standards, which already support 10Gbps download speeds. This platform allows Mediacom to deliver 10Gbps speeds without digging new trenches and installing new fiber-to-the-home connections.

The name 10G is short for 10Gbps and is unrelated to the 5G term used for mobile, which is short for “fifth generation.”

When will Mediacom offer 10Gbps speeds?

Mediacom doesn’t provide a specific window for 10Gbps speeds, but the 10G Platform that enables 10Gbps wired speeds is rolling out now.
