    Slow internet with Mediacom in Ames area

    Anyone else experiencing this? I called the hotline and they were experiencing a large call volume.

    1. They're always experiencing large call volume
    2. Mediacom is always delivering slow internet due to poor infastructure.

    My favorite is theyve started switching people over to a message about high call volume that doesnt even let you wait for someone to talk to. Either automated service or 'call back later'.

    Yeah, retweeting twits will get them motivated.That will make them jump into action. Ask Royce #BeWellMediacom.

    No, but my ICS internet slows to a crawl randomly sometimes... Plus I hate the stupid sign in page I have to visit whenever I log on.

    I have been experiencing problems with my digital cable in Altoona, and random internet drops. Been kind of bad the last day or two.
