Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Clovis
Great value/Great service
I've had Ponderosa Edge for over 6 years and have been very pleased with speed, reliability and service. They've been very responsive during the times I've needed help. I greatly appreciate that there are no extra fees--just a flat price. The bandwidth I get has actually doubled over the 6 years with no increase in price.
