Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Russellville

Continous price hiking with no explanation or contact for resolution

Customer service via Suddenlink's website is non-existent concerning billing errors. The only means of resolving issues is face-to-face, or phone calls (medical issues prevent me from speaking). The cable signal is reliable and fast, but existing customers are billed for upgrades to entice new subscribers. Monthly bill is raised approximately $5.00 every 2-3 months with no explanation. I've been a customer for several years, on a fixed income. Alternate options are relatively few and far between. I've inquired about resolving the issue and have been handed a phone number to call each time. Only option is disconnect, wait 30 days, and begin as "new customer".

Only "broadband" carrier in area

I've had Suddenlink in my area for 5+ years. Suddenlink, however, would receive a hard 3, I've had connectivity issues, a low data cap, and lack of promised throughput. On a good day, I receive about 60-70% of my bandwidth. That being said customer service will reach you in about 10 mins which may be a little faster than normal and they always try to help.
