Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Fort Myers
Mobile Phone Wireless Service
Great service great people to talk to unlimited internet on my phone. Resolved issues immediately when I call. I don't ever want to change from Verizon. Just remember that if you use the cloud and you have to change phones and phone numbers, the cloud will delete your backup from the other phone within 30 days. That should be explained to customers. OTHER THAN THAT--- I LOVE VERIZON.
