Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Apache Junction

Poor reliability.

Mediacom internet service is so unreliable that I have to unplug and restart my modem every day. I pay for 100Mbps speeds but average about 7.5. And if the modem has been plugged in more then 8hrs. I have to turn it off and back on to get it to work again.
