Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Bakersfield
We have numerous outages in my area. Although customer service is fairly good, the actual services are spotty. I can't even stream a movie without losing my internet connectivity. We've had techs come out and have been given reasons for spotty service that offer no real explanation or solution. We've been longtime customers but we're definitely a long way from satisfied.
