WOW introduces service usage plans for residential customers

(AMN) – In an email to customers WideOpenWest Finance, LLC also known to consumers as WOW notified customers it would implement a monthly data usage plan effective October 1, 2022. Many customers were notified by email of the upcoming changes which include data caps, and overage charges dependent on consumer service packages provided. The previously uncapped and unthrottled data plans were popular with customers. You may read a copy of the email provided to customers below:

Account Notification:
Important Update to Your Internet Plan

Dear Valued WOW! Customer,

Every day, we’re working hard to ensure all WOW! customers have a consistent and reliable network experience. In an effort to ensure this consistent experience continues, we’re writing to let you know that we’re introducing a monthly data usage plan for your residential Internet service.

This change is effective October 1, 2022. Rest assured, the average WOW! customer will consume far less data than their plan allows and only a small percentage will be impacted by overage fees. Unless you’re using servers or file-sharing applications that consume extreme amounts of data, it’s highly unlikely that you’ll go over your data allowance.

If you do go over your data plan, we’ve got you covered. The first time you experience a data overage, we’ll proactively waive fees. For any subsequent data overage, increments of 50GB for $10 will be automatically applied for the remainder of the current calendar month. Total overage charges will not exceed $50 per billing statement no matter how much data you use.

Here’s what we’re doing to make sure you feel confident that your Internet service includes enough data to work, watch, and surf to your heart’s content:

  • We’ll notify you via the text and/or email addresses in the customer contact information provided by you if you approach your data allowance.
    • Don’t miss a message – head to login.wowway.com to ensure your contact information is up-to-date!
  • Wondering how much data your household uses? Your data dashboard at login.wowway.com/services will help you understand your monthly usage.
