Mediacom Service Commitment Agreement
Congratulations on choosing Mediacom as your service provider! By ordering, installing or using Mediacom’s service you are agreeing to be bound by this agreement (“Commitment Agreement”) with Mediacom for a fixed term (“Term”). This Commitment Agreement is made between you and the subsidiary of Mediacom Communications Corporation that owns the cable system that provides the Services (as defined below). You understand that with your commitment, your monthly rate will increase in accordance with the terms of the offer, and Mediacom may increase monthly package price if it increases or adds to the standard rates for services, equipment and other items corresponding to those in the offered package, so long as the discount from standard prices represented by the initial offer price is maintained during the term stated in your offer. After the term ends, Mediacom may elect at any time to charge you its standard rates in effect from time to time. If any Service (as defined below) is terminated prior to the end of the Term you may owe an Early Termination Fee as described below.

The services that you have purchased (“Services”) and their associated pricing, including promotional and package pricing you receive, if any, are listed in the monthly billing statement provided to you by Mediacom.
