I am on mediacom for the moment and it's OK but I'm really upset at them
right now. My wife's grandpa died and I was going through their bills last
night to figure out how to cut costs and get a working budget for his wife.
Mediacom has been charging them $70 per month for family cable (no digital,
no extras). When I called they started by thanking me for being a customer
for 28 years.
I asked them how to get a lower rate and they literally said they only give
lower rates to new customers. When I told them I was going to switch
to satellite they gave a $10/mo discount for 6 months.
