    Mediacom prices

    I'll probably never make the switch back over but does anyone have the pricing for mediacom in the Des Moines area?

    DVR's?
    Packages?
    HD?
    Premiums?

    I'm not talking about their fake rates that you get for a year.

    Re: Mediacom prices

    I just switched to DirecTV this week. Mediacom with HD, DVR, and the extended basic family was about $86/mo. This is in the Tama area.

    Re: Mediacom prices

    With DVR, HD, Showtime, SportsPak, family cable and internet, it would have been about $160-170 a month. I dropped them(kept internet) and went to Dish Network and pay quite a bit less and get more channels.

    You can get Mediacom internet without any other services, they just charge an additional fee.

    Re: Mediacom prices

    I just can't believe how much internet costs. I mostly use my Pre to tether and would get by with 90% of what I need using that.
    I guess for people gaming and downloading they might need something better.

    Fiber is out in the metro, depending on where people live. I'm stuck with 1.5 unfortunately, co-worker is not however in Urbandale.

    Also he said he kept internet.

    I would think you would have to be getting a deal at that price.

    I have extended, HD DVR, Sports Pak, Starz, and 12mb internet and pay about $140 per month.

    Since I just got a PS3 I think I will get the netflix streaming and drop starz, I think starz is $7 per month and HBO, Showtime, Cinemax are like $12 per month each.

    The digital tier of channels is something like $10 or $15 more per month. I like some of the channels there but not enough to pay extra for it.

    Re: Mediacom prices

    i just left mediacom myself... they constantly keep adding fees... i had a promotion for 20 bucks for a yr with HD DVR and internet then then after it yr it went to the regular price of like 115 which i had no problem paying.. then after 6 months it was up to 120 then like 2 months later it was 125 and finally when i got sent a bill for 145 and i left them.. they did the same thing to my future father in law...

    I didnt want to go through the hassle of switching and asked to stay with them and they told me the best they could do was 135 a month... it was funny a month later they had somebody come back and offered me 60 a month for everything i had previous and i told the gentlemen wouldnt go back to them if they paid me...

    I pay 110 now for dish and qwest high speed and have way more reg and HD channels... mediacom is a JOKE!

    Re: Mediacom prices

    I guess it doesn't matter because I just committed to 2 more years to Directv today. They gave me a free HD dvr so I pulled the trigger. Of course I had to threaten to cancel.

    I wish Qwest would move a little faster with their fiber network.

    So, is this a solid commit or are you still going to take other visits?
