Cable One chalks up back to school data promo
To coincide with students going back to school, Cable One announced it had lowered the price on its 50 Mbps down, 2 Mbps up data tier to $35 a month.
The promotion lasts for the first three months of service, and is available for a limited time. One the promotion ends, Cable One charges $50 a month for the 50 Mbps tier, or $33 as part of a bundle. Cable One’s 50 Mbps Internet plan offers a 300 GB data guideline and access to ESPN3.
In June, Cable One said it would eliminate overage fees  for its data tiers, and raised the cap on its 50 Mbps from 100 GB to 300 GB.
“We’re very excited to offer new Internet customers the best Internet experience for surfing, streaming, and online gaming at this great new rate,” said Joe Felbab, Cable One’s vice president of marketing.
Cable One, which is a subsidiary of The Washington Post Company and the nation’s 10th-largest cable operator, offers its triple play services to 730,000 customers in 42 markets across 19 states. Cable One wasn’t included in Amazon founder Jeff Bezos’ recent purchase of The Washington Post and other newspapers from The Washington Post Company.
