Understanding Your Internet Data Usage
In an effort to continue to deliver the experience you’ve come to expect from WOW!, we have introduced data usage plans to residential customers in Chicago, Augusta, Knoxville, Panama City, and Southeast Michigan markets. Rest assured, whether it’s working, learning, streaming, or gaming, the average WOW! customer will consume far less data than their plan allows and only a small percentage will ever be impacted by overage fees.
You’ve probably heard about data usage plans from other Internet providers. WOW! is committed to going above and beyond industry norms. While most providers offer 1,200 GB of data/month, some WOW! plans offer up to 3,000 GB/month! 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.
