The Iowa City Press-Citizen is reporting today Mediacom has been voted as the worst cable company in the country in a Consumer Reports survey.
Mediacom, the dominant cable company in the state of Iowa, ranked at the bottom of a survey of 50,000 consumer reports readers for TV service, phone service and bundled telecom services. In Internet service, the company ranked only above satellite Internet providers WildBlue and HughesNet.
Disdain for Mediacom was likely at an all-time high a few years ago when the company was struggling to make a deal to carry the Big Ten Network, which has exclusive rights to televise many Hawkeye football games. That fiasco was resolved just before the 2008 season.
Now, customers are apparently most concerned with getting ripped off. Mediacom was given the worst "Value" score in four categories in the Consumer Reports survey.
So is Mediacom really the worst cable company in the country? Discuss in the comments section.
