Independent cable MSO Midcontinent is continuing a DOCSIS 3.0 roll out across the Midwest. They announced that their Pierre and Ft. Pierre South Dakota markets will be turned up on Monday August 17th.
Where Midco offers wideband, it’s branded as ‘MidcoNet Ultimate’ and offers 50 Mbps downstream and 5 Mbps upstream. Its unbundled price point is $124.95. Like their larger MSO brethren, Midco bumps up their other cable modem speeds in conjunction with DOCSIS 3.0 launches, taking their mid tier product, MidcoNet Preferred, to 15 Mbps downstream, from 10 Mbps. Midco also offers DOCSIS 3.0 in West Fargo, ND and Sioux Falls, SD, with additional markets planned. Midco’s wideband expansion demonstrates that DOCSIS 3.0 is not only reserved for major markets.
Are you facing wideband competition? If so, where, and how are you addressing it?
