    Mediacom sucks

    On the bright side, at least it got through the ISU game before the cable tv decided to completely stop working.

    Nah...the best ones are the "OMG a person actually answered the phone!" commercials. Because of location and the way our land lies we are stuck with Mediacom...and if there's a problem you can be on hold forever. When I get the phone tree asking all the questions, I answer every question with "representative, please"...gets you to a live person a lot quicker (even though half the time they can't do jack for you).

    At this point I wish I was on hold forever. Not only does my cable not work, when I call them it's either busy, or they disconnect me because their "call volume". I just gave up. Part of me just wants to keep calling them to keep their lines jammed up.

    I just assumed that whenever the cable went out customer service just took the phone off the hook.

    If we combined all the "mediacom sucks" threads I think it would rival the RV super-thread.

    Re: Mediacom sucks

    Mediacom is the worst television/phone company in the country. I read that in a Consumer Reports once. Verizon FIOS surprisingly had very high rankings wherever you have to live to get their services.

    Ah - yours is Des Moines based. I deal with the Ames folks. Sorry, pal. Time to break out a movie, I guess.

    Due to a Mediacom service interruption in Des Moines and surrounding areas, our Cyclones.tv channel is currently off the air.

    They actually basically do that now. They'll have a recorded message say 'there is an outage in your area and we are working to fix it. please call back later
