Mediacom operates in 23 states, with about 2 million television and 750,000 broadband subscribers.
Free Press Policy Counsel Aparna Sridhar made the following statement:
“Mediacom’s egregious actions provide yet another example of a cable company interfering with its subscribers’ use of the Internet. Like Comcast and Charter before it, Mediacom’s actions indicate that gatekeeper network operators won’t hesitate to monitor and meddle with their subscribers’ connections. Mediacom should immediately end its practice of hijacking of third-party websites, and disclose the technologies it is using to read and modify its subscribers’ Internet communications.”
“We hope the Federal Communications Commission takes note of the ongoing misbehavior by Internet service providers, and is vigilant in protecting Internet users."
