WOW! internet overview

WOW!, or Wide Open West, is one of the larger regional cable internet providers, covering select markets across nine states, in the Midwest and southern U.S. to reach over seven million customers.

If you happen to live in an area serviceable for WOW! internet, you’ll have up to four internet plan options with gigabit speeds available in select areas.

What we like

  • Speeds as fast as anyone – With download speeds up to 1,000 Mbps, WOW! can compete with the big national providers 
  • Customizable Wi-Fi service – Get built in Wi-Fi with your modem rental, or upgrade to premium Wi-Fi service and add Wi-Fi extenders where needed
  • No contracts – No contract is required with WOW! internet service

Things to consider

  • Limited availability – WOW! areas of operation are less broad than you’ll find with most other providers, which can make transferring service difficult if you move even a short distance away
  • Wi-Fi fees can add up – Premium Wi-Fi service will add a fee on top of the modem rental fee, plus an additional fee for each Wi-Fi extender you need

Choosing the right WOW! plan for your home

In most locations, WOW! has up to four plans to choose from. All are competitively priced compared to similar plans from other providers.

WOW! internet equipment and fees

Like WOW! speeds and pricing, you’ll find their equipment and fees to be just as good or better than many of the larger providers. WOW! also comes with the option to upgrade your Wi-Fi equipment and add extenders, something that isn’t available from all providers.

➤ Standard Wi-Fi – starting at $14/mo. with an option to use your own equipment

You can rent a modem with “built-in Wi-Fi,” also known as a gateway router, for $14/mo. It’s your standard modem/router combo, and will should serve a single floor house up to 1,500 square feet just fine. Those in larger or multi-floor houses may want to consider upgrading to whole-home Wi-Fi to ensure the signal reaches all areas of the house.

There’s also the option to use your own Wi-Fi equipment, which comes with its own pros and cons. Or, if you opt for the Gig plan, the equipment is included at no extra charge.

➤ Whole-home Wi-Fi – starting at an additional $9.99/mo.

Mesh Wi-Fi systems are increasing in popularity as they are capable of providing a stronger connection with further range than the standard router. WOW! offers mesh Wi-Fi hardware to boost your connection starting at $9.99/mo. WOW! waives the $9.99/mo. fee for subscribers of their gigabit plan.

Wi-Fi extenders are a key component to mesh Wi-Fi connections and are available from WOW! starting at an additional $5.99/mo. each. Consider adding Wi-Fi extenders, or “Beacons,” on any floor the router is not on, or anywhere you want to ensure a strong connection.

➤ Data caps – none

There are no data caps, so you can stream, game and download all month long without fear of slowed speeds or overage fees.

➤ Contracts and early termination fees (ETFs) – varies

No contract is required with WOW! Internet 100 plan, which means no early termination fees if you need to change your service or cancel when you move. However, to get the best rates with the 200, 500 or Gig internet plans, a 12-month agreement is required. The ETF is $165, but decreases by $15 for each completed month of service. 

WOW! also occasionally has 24-month agreements, in which case your price is guaranteed for a longer period of time, but the ETF is higher. In those cases, the ETF is $345, and still decreases by $15 for each completed month of service.

➤ Installation – $50, free with most plans

Standard installation for WOW! internet comes with a one-time fee of $50, but WOW! is currently offering free, no-contact installation with all online orders.

WOW! internet FAQs

How much is WOW! internet monthly?

WOW! internet plans start between $39.99-$74.99/mo. To get the lowest available price, you must sign up for autopay and paperless billing. Renting a wireless modem will add $14/mo. to your bill, however, you can opt to provide your own compatible modem and router to avoid that charge.

WOW! uses coaxial cables to bring cable internet to your home. In some areas, WOW! uses a combination of fiber-optic and cable lines to deliver faster speeds.
