Mediacom Boosts Speeds

Mediacom Communications said Tuesday it is boosting its Internet speeds over the next several months at no additional charge.

Prime Plus service will go from 30 to 50 Mbps downstream, and from 3 Mbps to 5 Mbps upstream. Ultra Service will double its speeds from 50 to 100 Mbps down, and from 5 to 10 up.

Ultra Plus will go from 100 Mbps to 150 Mbps down, and from 10Mbps  to 20Mbps up.

Prime Plus and Ultra speeds will increase in early June, while Ultra Plus will roll out throughout the summer.

Speed sells, and is also in line with the new emphasis in Washington on sufficient speed as a measure of broadband deployment and availability as higher bandwidth applications, like streaming video, become the new normal.
