    3.26 and .95

    My shit's weak. I've never been happy with Mediacom and their advertised connection speeds vs their actual connection speeds.

    I used to have mediacom for a long time, both the mediacom max and the mediacom standard, they both tested around 10 down and 1 up quite frequently. this fiber just became available to me a few months ago, only cost me about $10 more a month. although a lot of websites wont transfer data to you fast enough to capitalize on the fiber speed but on big downloads or youtube you will see the benefits
