Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Collinsville

Great Company, Great service!!!

I was skeptical of fixed wireless internet and I have to admit they have totally surpassed all of my expectations and delivered a service that is the best internet I have ever had. They also provide the best customer service that I have ever had from an internet provider. I have the 25 up 25 down for $99 plan as I'm a youtuber. I'm very happy with Killiansnet.
