CableOne is now offering 50Mbps business plans as of today. The old business packages will continue to remain available. This chart (that I snagged from CableOne’s photocopier) shows their month-to-month pricing. However, there are bundled rates and other saving available.
It wasn’t that long ago that CableOne made their 50Mbps available to residential customers. Now with their DOCSIS 3.0 technology fully implemented, both business and residential customers alike will have to seriously consider the power of 50Mbps over the offerings of anyone else.
However, throughput limits are in effect on some of the packages. Any current CableOne customer can log into their account and see their current throughput to determine if the limits will effect them or not. Also, CableOne uses an in browser popup warning system to make sure that users are well aware of the potential of exceeding their limit.
There are a lot more questions to answer for any business considering a move to CableOne. What are the bundles? What are the potential savings? If phone service is added, will that save money? What about existing contracts? The thing to do is to speak with a CableOne Business Account Representative. Every business has unique needs, and they are the only ones qualified to fully answer any question for any situation.
The CableOne Business Account Representative that we do business with and prefer is Maryanne DeMarco. She prefers to be reached on her cell phone at (928) 202-1963. Tell her Hill Top IT sent you.
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. If you’ve got questions please call us, we know the top people at CableOne and how to get things done.

Just a few minutes ago, I opened Internet Explorer to read a newspaper article, and saw this at the top of my browser page.
Introducing the new CableONE In-browser Notification system! Basically, an in-browser pop-up telling me that CableOne will on occasion send me important notifications through my browser, and that this message will keep showing up until I click the big green button. Here’s what I think: Continue reading »
