Data Cap Issues Around Surprise
Data from our researchers shows that popular ISPs in Surprise currently place some sort of limit on data use for their residential Internet packages. Data caps are disliked because customers view them as a tactic for limiting "cord cutting", while providers insist they are a necessary strategy for managing network traffic. In either case, the issue is the same: streaming services, which easily eats up one to seven Gigabytes per hour.

Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Surprise
Excellent Field Representatives
I was having trouble with Cox internet, it was working intermittently. A service call was scheduled but I had to wait 2 days. Upon arrival, Field Service Representative Lot Ledezma immediately worked on the issue. As a home business, internet is crucial in communicating with clients/vendors. There was no record of the issues I explained and no immediate reason for the problem. Lot was kind enough to give me his business card so that if I had the problem again to call and let him know. Again the problem arose, I called Lot and the very next day, Lot and Field Technical Specialist Robert Godlove attacked the situation I was having. Through troubleshooting techniques and daylight diminishing, they replaced items and solved the problem with excellent results. My internet runs faster than before and no more down time to deal with. As a long time Cox customer, I want to sincerely thank these men for caring about Cox customers and Cox for hiring the best to resolve my issues.
