Midcontinent has been the best ISP I've ever had. I cannot complain about my 200Mbps connection from them. But I'll take a Gig, when they offer it here in 2017.

hrm do i want gigabit so baddddd. to bad i have time warner and the comcast buyout is screwing us all.

The only nice thing I have seen coming from Time Warner Cable is their new Maxx service which will be a free upgrade to everyone.

It will be nice once midco finshes up I will have the choice of 2 different gigabit providers. Between midco and paul bunyan communications nearly all of northern Minnesota will have gigabit. Love it.

Free is deceptive.

 

Existing customers will get upgraded based on the tier of internet they are paying for already. In my case, I was paying for "Turbo" internet speeds, which were 20/2. When I got my "free" upgrade, the speed went to 100/10. 

 

Of course I already purchased my own modem, but if I was leasing it, I would have had to replace mine with a new one.

 

My father-in-law got upgraded to his new speeds with a $10 charge on his account above the standard internet cost. Unfortunately TWC didn't bother telling him that he needed a new modem, so for the last 4 months, he was paying an extra $10 and still stuck with a DOCSIS 2.0 modem.

From what I've read, it appears they are replacing incompatible hardware after the upgrade is available. At the end of October, I had to have a technician come to my house to figure out why I kept getting hiccups in my connection as well as an inability to maintain a steady wifi connection. He replaced my SB6183 modem and gave me a new Arris DG1670A as well as said he would have to check the entire run between my house and the source of internet to find out why my internet is jumpy and not solid. He also told me it would be better for me anyways for the upcoming changes that TWC is making in my area. (this is when I looked up what he was referring to and found TWC Max) I have looked and haven't seen any changes in my bill since the swap
