Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Stamford
Optimum...more than OK
We had another provider, but weren't pleased with their customer service or billing errors. We were paying hundreds of $$ per month (cell phones included) but the bills kept going up and we were always finding charges for items that we had not requested or used. Techs were great, but we were having issues with our cell phones, our television and internet...slow or no service, dropped calls, tv blackouts.. When an Optimum fellow came around, I asked him to show me the speed on his cell (impressive for data) and asked for an overview of the company's offer to make us switch... for everything but cell phone coverage. He was helpful, knowledgeable, and answered all my questions, plus gave us a great intro price for landline (which I rarely use), television, internet...all at terrific speeds and easy interface.That was 5 years ago...Sure, prices have increased , and we have had to have our router replaced twice, but at no charge. The techs are superb, they know their job and are always a delight to work with. EVERY single person I have talked with in customer service seems to genuinely want to help, prompt, efficient and problems are cleared up quickly, always with a good outcome. However, some of their policies are absurd....I didn't receive a bill one month and called to find out the address to send the check to. I was told that I had to provide answers to my husband's security questions before they could give me that information. She would not answer any questions regarding our account, even to provide Optimum's own address so that I could pay the bill. Another provider sends us incredible offers, but Optimum's television service is great, and internet good, but not perfect (and we are paying for the best speed available). The landline is something we don't really need, so there may be some changes to our service... All in all I would recommend Optimum and would love to have them for our shore house in Bayville, NJ, but apparently they are not providing wireless service there.
