About Mediacom

Mediacom Communications is a hybrid fiber-coaxial cable internet provider headquartered in New York. It mainly provides internet service in states just west of the Great Lakes: Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, and a few others. You’ll also find Mediacom near Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, and in parts of Florida, Georgia, and Alabama.

Mediacom is currently upgrading its core network to bring faster speeds to smaller towns. However, the company plans to deploy the CableLabs 10G Platform over the next several years using the DOCSIS 3.1 and 4.0 cable modem standards. That means Mediacom could soon deliver symmetrical 10 Gbps speeds over existing cable TV lines. The first trials began in 2020—Xfinity followed Mediacom’s lead in 2022. 1 2

For now, customers can enjoy download speeds from 100 Mbps to 1,000 Mbps in nearly all Mediacom cable internet service areas. Mediacom increased its download speeds in March 2022 (except for the 1 GIG plan), including a boost for the Connect2Compete Plus plan.3

FAQ about Mediacom

What is the 10G Platform?

The 10G Platform is a project spearheaded by CableLabs to bring symmetrical 10 Gbps 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 10 Gbps download speeds. This platform allows Mediacom to deliver 10 Gbps speeds without installing new fiber-to-the-home connections.

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

When will Mediacom offer 10 Gbps speeds?

Mediacom doesn’t provide a specific window, but Mediacom Area Operations Director Lee Beck stated in April 2022, that the company plans to deploy the platform “in the coming years.” 4
