Is Mediacom worth the cost?

We think Mediacom is generally worth the cost. The service is reliable, fast, and well-priced (especially at the beginning). The Wi-Fi equipment is also excellent. There are a couple of caveats, though: you'll want to make sure you can stick with Mediacom for the entirety of your contract (at least two years) to avoid early termination fees. We’d also recommend avoiding the lowest-tier plan. While the price is excellent, the data cap is very low, and overage charges can add up quickly.

Switching to Mediacom?

If you’re switching to Mediacom, you’ll want to be aware of the upfront costs. While the package prices are low, there are a number of fees you’ll have to pay on your first bills. These include the installation fee, a Wi-Fi certification fee (whatever that means), and an activation fee.

Savings tip: Mediacom often has sign-up promotions for first-time customers. Call 1-844-716-2788 to ask a rep about current deals and discounts.

Canceling Mediacom services?

Canceling Mediacom isn’t as straightforward as some other providers. Since the company requires contracts, you’ll be on the hook for an early termination fee if you leave before your term is up.

Mediacom’s contracts vary in length—if you have a one-year term, you’ll have to pay up to $120 for early termination, and if you have a two- or three-year contract, you’ll have to pay up to $240. After calling customer service to cancel, you’ll also need to return any equipment you’ve rented.

Negotiating tip: Most providers will bend over backward to retain you as a customer. Before canceling, try calling in and asking for a better rate.
Costs to consider:
  • Self-installation cost: N/A
  • Professional installation cost: $109.99 (but often waived via promotions), plus a $10 activation fee
  • Equipment fees: Start at $10/mo.
  • Additional fees: $49 Wi-Fi certification fee, $49 service call fee
  • Contract length: 1-3 years
  • Cancellation fee: Up to $240
