Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Melbourne
Reasonable Rate for ethernet connection
I appreciate this test service and it confirms that my internet is providing a good rate. I'm going to use this same tool to check my wireless rate as well.
CenturyLink service is amazing and tech spent extra time making sure my disabled Mom in a nursing home could call her family! Awesome service! Highly recommended!
Needed to connect multiple locations for a central server and we thought our only option was ATT Metro-e-service when we learned of Florida High-Speed Internet and their ability to create a reliable WAN at less cost we gave it a try. Best decision we ever made. FLHSI is reliable and fast and saved my IT budget thousands.
