Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Lake Isabella
More for less
We cut our services for television from Mediacom eliminating Netflix and Stars, reducing our television to basic and increased our Internet speed to 100kbps. Now I'm at a bill that's higher than the one with more television channels. The internet speed is also rarely 100kbps and flushes all the way to zero frequently.
