CableOne has introduced a new residential 50Mbps plan for $45/month. They’ve changed up how they do their residential internet. Changes are coming to the business packages, but I don’t have those details yet. Here’s the breakdown in the changes:
Daily caps and bandwidth throttling have been removed. Hurray!
Economy Plan: 1.5Mbps down for $20/month. 1GB/month throughput limit. Go over the limit for $10/GB. This is pretty much unchanged.
Standard Plan: 5Mbps down for $50/month. No commitments. No limits. No caps. No throttling. No tricks.
Preferred Plan: 50Mbps down for $45/month. 1-year commitment required. 50GB/month throughput limit. Go over the limit for $0.50/GB.
There’s an in-browser warning system for users who are approaching their monthly cap. Unlike cell-phone companies who love to bill people thousands of dollars for going over their minutes, CableOne gives any user fair warning of what their status is so that nobody accidently goes over their limit. It works with any browser on any OS. Although, 50GB/month is quite a bit. Even if a person has two Xbox’s, five PC’s, watches Netflix, and plays World of Warcraft online, the 50GB allotment is enough.
As usual, getting a bundle of services will get one a better deal. For example, (according to CableOne’s website) $75/month and a two-year committment will provide the 50Mbps Internet, Cable TV, and phone service.
