    Is anyone else having problems with Mediacom internet service?

    I can login in to some websites but not every one-Freedom Communication, Go to lmeeting and my email server all give me an error message.

    Same here - called and they said they were having issues in the area. It is somewhat better but not fixed yet.

    I only go to SoWal and a few other sites. I haven't had any trouble with the internet, but my phone service went out but its back now.

    Slow as molasses over in the Eastern Lake area - I called Mediacom to complain and was talking to a tech on the landline when the tech said "I'm going to take over your modem" Well he did, recycled it and cut me off as I have phone service from Mediacom. Never heard a follow up from the gent. !! It could be worse and we could have COMCAST" You can check your speed by going to speakeasy.net/speedtest but it is v e r y s l o w

    Most third world countries have better internet service.

    My speeds are all over the map. Three speedtests today have all produced vastly different results.
    From .36mbps to 10.15mbps... Thing is, at all those times, I was unable to load even simple websites.

    After 2 years of Mediacon, all I can say is DSL is your friend. Centurylink, $30/month tacked on to my phone bill, 3 Mbps = speedy internet, no problems with streaming Netflix instant, and it NEVER goes out. (Man, did I just jinx myself or what?? I'm knocking on everything wood...)

    Is this still happening this morning?

    I had guests from Cassine call me between 5:00 - 7:00 central yesterday (Monday) and they couldn't get through to some web sites, while others they could but it seemed slow. Simple pings seemed to work (usually). Ran speedtest several times all with speeds around 7Mbps so it didn't sound like a connectivity issue, but the intermittent web site responses continued, despite rebooting routers and computers.

    Mediacom wasn't reporting any service issues in the area on their web site, far as I could tell.

    Doesn't seem to be a problem this morning. It was spotty and slow as molasses yesterday. My usual 12Mbps connection was down to 4.5Mbps, which MediaCON says is unacceptable.

    Carol G, 3Mbps is about the speed of my phone being used as a tethered modem. Seems really slow compared to 12Mbps, even though it "never goes out." I'm surprised you are able to stream movies at that speed.

    BTW, MediaCON never reports any service issues in our area. I guess doing so messes up their statistics and bragging points.

    I'm still having the same issues this morning. Some web sites won't load, some will.

    This sort of sounds like a DNS issue - I haven't been having problems these last two days, but I don't use the MediaCom DNS servers, I use Google Public DNS:

    It's worth a try.
