Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Largo

More money

I became a spectrum customer after my previous company was taken over. They want more money to keep the channels I previously had on my "Sports Package". After that and the bad service on their Guide, I've cancelled any extra services (HBO,Showtime), back to basic, and will be looking at going back to my previous cable provider (WoW!). The (lack of) customer service provided on the phone were bordering on rudeness.
