Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Whitewater

Expected really bad service but got really good service!!!!

I live in Palisade, Colorado in a sparsely populated area that has no cable service and the phone lines are too far away from the phone office to get DSL service. So the only way for me to get internet service was by satellite or broadband from Rise. Satellite got good reviews but was too expensive at about $75 to $85 a month. Rise was much cheaper but had horrible reviews for providing service at all let alone 15 to 20 Mbps and many reviews said that they were being overcharged or told they had excessive data usage. So, what to do? I decided to give Rise a try since they were just now (December, 2018) offering a no contract $29.95 month for 12 months with no penalty for cancelling at any time. they gave me 50% discount on installation and free first month also. To my happy surprise, the sales people were not lying to me when they said Rise was installing new, better equipment and that i would see all my charges as they quoted them to me in my account. For about the last month or so that i had them start my service, i have gotten 15 to 20Mbps service steadily and my bill is totally accurate and as they said it would be. I am very very happy with Rise Broadband and would highly recommend them as they have given me everything they promised.
