ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Mediacom Cable says it is improving services as it prepares for possible cable competition- from a new company called L2-Networks- for the first time. 

Mediacom now offers about 50 High definition channels and plans to add 25 more soon. They also plan to roll out faster Internet service.

Company leaders say competition from a new cable company that hopes to enter the market within six months will benefit everyone.

"Competition is good for a company and it's certainly good for customers and Mediacom continues to meet that competition by providing good products and services, launching new products and services, and also providing a fair and competitive price for what we offer," said Mediacom's Sally Bloom.

The company says digital television has increased the demand for quality service because picture break-ups are more obvious to viewers. They say they are constantly working to improve their service.
