A pleasant surprise from Mediacom

I decided to check my Mediacom e-mail account this morning and it had this lone e-mail sitting in the Inbox. I guess Mediacom is doubling the speeds for my area…and many others as it turns out. I currently have a 1.5 megabits downstream and 128 kilobits upstream. After the upgrade, I’ll have a 3 megabits per sond downstream and a 256 kilobits per second upstream.

It’s supposed to happen Feb. 1….here in a few days! Anyway, here’s the e-mail:

Think twice as FAST. With Mediacom Online.

We’re doubling the capabilities of the fastest Internet
access available. Now, Mediacom Online is twice as fast,
with download speeds up to 3 megabits per second and
upstream speeds up to 256 kilobits per second. This upgrade
is automatic and will be effective February 1, 2004. All
you need to do is sit back and get the low down on the
fastest downloads around.

Please note that your service may be down for a few minutes
between 2 a.m. and 5 a.m. from January 28, 2004 through
January 31, 2004 as we install this upgrade to the system.

We hope that this work doesn’t impact your work in any way.
