WOW!: We’ll Stay Cap Free

Competitive cable operator WOW! reaffirmed a commitment not to implement data caps and usage-based policies for all of its high-speed internet customers, holding that it’s taking the “consumer side” in that debate.

WOW! said the promise of no data caps comes amid recently updated internet-only plans and new bundles, adding that it now offers speeds up to 500 Mbps across 95% of its footprint. WOW is also pushing ahead with a rollout of 1-Gig speeds using DOCSIS 3.1 technology, starting in markets that include Auburn and Huntsville, Ala., and Evansville, Ind.; and Knoxville, Tenn.

WOW! now offers broadband tiers as standalones or as part of service bundles, including Internet 100 (100 Mbps), Internet 500 (500Mbps), and Internet 1000, where 1-Gig is available.

“With the increasing use of Internet-connected devices in the home, the rise of telecommuting, online learning, and popularity of over-the-top (OTT) streaming services, WOW! recognized the coming seismic shift and invested early to create a better internet experience without limitations,” the company said in a statement released Tuesday.
