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.
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.
