Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Littleton
Best of the Best
In the years I have been a customer, I have received premium internet service with immediate response from them. Good price too.
Sub-par on product; great technicians.
Mixed results: I've had CenturyLink for 20+ years. Attempting to leave them because they charge $140 for simple 20/2 MB service + basic phone. Can't get anything faster without going to fiber optic to the tune of $1,000 per month. So goodbye landline. Overall rating on a 5 point scale: Price: Zero. Reliability: 5. Value: 1.8 Technicians: 6 on a 5 point scale, they've been awesome. Sales guys: 2 Empathy from corporate: 0.1
