Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Scottsboro
Not Reliable Constant Interruptions
Customer service is always pleasant and seems to be concerned about the issues we are having. The problem, they can never seem to get it right. Internet service is constantly coming and going. When we have any hint of rain, all bets are off, just a matter of how long the interruptions will be. Speed is decent, reliability is the concern. Thankfully they are not providing power, candles anyone?
