      Midcontinent Communications is a cable and internet provider in the upper Midwest United States. They claim to be the fastest internet in the region, and the best deal on cable and internet bundles.

      Midcontinent does have the best deal. They have a “69 Buck Bundle” which is digital cable, high definition channels, a trial at a premium movie package, and “high speed” broadband internet — all for 69


      dollars per month. The commercial shows a Midcontinent robot knocking out a robot of another provider, but if you have the money, most other providers are preferable, especially for your cable television.

      Half of the time on my television, the Nickelodeon channel (and a few others) fail to play. The screen will go black and Midcontinent’s notice will say “ONE MOMENT PLEASE — your channel will be available shortly,” only for the channel to never appear. My channels from TBS through Discovery Fit and Health are all garbled and blocky in picture and sound and therefore not viewable.

      On top of this, these are people from the upper Midwest, so don’t expect a friendly or attractive interface. If you do, you will be disappointed. If you want to watch something On Demand, there is no back ...

      button. If you don’t find a program you like in, say, HBO Documentaries, you can’t go to the main HBO menu. You have to hit Exit and retrace your steps into the On Demand menu.

      These are minor annoyances in themselves, but they add up to frustration. This is not to say all people with Midcontinent will have the problems with reception, but it IS to say

      that our cable was poorly installed, and if you choose Midcontinent, yours may well be, too.

      With that said, I will say that the internet services are a lot better than the cable, and I recommend them. I have experienced no problems with my Midcontinent internet access. However, as a whole, Midcontinent simply lacks professional experience because it is stuck in a sparsely populated region of the country.
