    Mediacom Speed Increase

    Has anyone noticed their Mediacom internet speed increase above the level you are paying for? I have the 12 mbps service, but have been getting around 24 mbps download speeds lately. Some glitch?

    Not seeing it. Getting around 11. Maybe call customer service and complain?

    Re: Mediacom Speed Increase

    currently a 13.97 download and a 1.75 upload. The download might be a little higher but the upload doesn't seem too good.

    How can you tell the difference between 11 and 24 unless you are using torrents?

    Thought I'd check since you mentioned it. Getting 16.4 Mbps download. It used to be right around 9 Mbps. Something has changed. Now it's hitting 18 Mbps.

    50.68 download. 5.54 upload with the new Wide Open West package in the Chicago suburbs. We have a three way competition in my town. Reportedly Verizon will be the 4th. It's nice to get quotes and pit one against the other.

    Re: Mediacom Speed Increase

    I'm part of a test of online speed by the FCC and saw this thread, so checked the data from my device. On March 22 the speed increased from the 11.75 to 15.75 and has held at the faster speed through today.

    Re: Mediacom Speed Increase

    What does mediacom charge for basic internet? Need speed fast enough to stream netflix. Can you sign up for only one year at a time?

    Mediacom is not contracted service. You can start one month and then drop it the next if you want.
