Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Sacramento
Been pretty reliable.
Good company, slow speeds.
Now I am just a renter and this internet is provided by the landlord, the landlord also has his own custom router installed so this could be attributed to the problem with the slow speeds. I have dealt with 3 blackouts in the last year that would range from 2 days (which was at the start of COVID) to about 30 minutes. Their Customer Service is fantastic, well-informed people who are kind and patient. I do not know my speeds because of my landlord but I have about a 10ms ping slower than my mates to the same servers when we live a block away from each other. I get a usable 2-16mbps down depending on the time of day, and a consistent 20mbps up. Great for upstreaming video when I am hosting video tutoring sessions and uploading recordings online, not so great if I need to download files.
