    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'.

    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.
