Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Los Alamitos

First day, great start

Just moved into a new apartment here in Fountain Valley. I requested the service online, and the kit arrived within a couple of days. The self-install process was easy and painless, and internet speed is exactly what I'm paying. Hopefully, it stays consistent, but thus far I'm a happy customer.
