Excellent Service and Support

Westelcom exceeded my expectations in Service, Support, and the Speed of the connection.

Much Better than others

Working great. Very fast service and my download speeds increased from 47Mbps to 467Mbps! Nice people, too.

Too pricey

Customer service, speed, and reliability are good, but I only have internet service getting charged for $75 a month then I saw the statement, will increase by $4 next month. After a good price for about 2yrs, they will increase just like that, cant switch because there are no other company services in this area.
