No surprise here: Mediacom rated worst cable provider in nationPosted: May 7, 2012
I used to have Mediacom. Man it sucked. Significant periods of no connection, poor quality equipment, ridiculous prices, and on and on and on. Now Consumer Reports has confirmed my anecdotal experience with their annual survey of cable providers.
Consumer Reports survey: Mediacom is the worst from the Press Citizen, May 7, 2012
Mediacom, the dominant cable company in the state of Iowa, ranked at the bottom of a survey of 50,000 consumer reports readers for TV service, phone service and bundled telecom services. In Internet service, the company ranked only above satellite Internet providers WildBlue and HughesNet.
A common theme for Mediacom among respondents was in the “Value” category for all four services surveyed. Mediacom had the worst rating for value on all four.
The one thing that I can say for Mediacom is that the women who used to work in the Gilbert St. office in Iowa City were always incredibly helpful and friendly.
