Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Branford

24 months commitment trap

PROS: They want to help you but they are helpless to increase speed. The only thing they can offer is to increase your 10GB quota as a gift for not leaving them but remember there are good unlimited plans in the market. Good during a natural disaster because it connects via satellite. CONS: 24 months contract which is not mentioned during the initial purchase/installation process. You will be charged $400 for early termination. There's also a 10GB quota limit and then speeds slowed. Not good for Internet-based TV.
