Grande Quality Declining

2.00 Stars

on January 24, 2020

I have been with Grande since 2003. Since the takeover by the new owners, Grande's quality and services have seriously declined. The hardware I had pre-sellout would cover a larger area. The new version of Grande no longer offers true tech support. They only train-employ Customer Service Reps [salespersons]. So if you have any kind of technical question, the answer is "Sorry we have not been trained in that area". I called for a simple firewall question and that was my answer. Grande is being turned into Comcast-Spectrum, all of the giants we all hate. Customers go to Grande for value and a relationship. That is gone now. When a company selling internet service cannot even answer a simple question about how that service works, well you decide, is this where you want to spend your money?

Great Internet!

I have been a customer of Grande for many years. They have provided constant and reliable service, only nature's influence has disrupted their service. I gave 3 stars on Customer Service due to the lack of general network knowledge, or total lack of desire to facilitate my needs when I needed my modem to be factory reset. Most of the representatives have no actual knowledge of how a network works. I have been told, on more than three occasions off the top of my head, that there are only wireless networks, and it is not possible to use an Ethernet cable. They have also informed me that you can not use a router separate from their equipment. For an avid computer nerd, who has been around PC's since birth, 1982, This has caused major distress and annoyance on many separate occasions. Luckily, you can politely ask to be transferred to the IT specialists, or a supervisor depending on your needs, and they are much more knowledgeable and capable of assisting. They offer the fastest speeds, for the most affordable price. No data caps, no data tracking, they don't care how much data you use or how quickly you use it. Setting up advanced routing for private security systems, dedicated servers, online gaming, and pretty much everything else I have been able to think of to trip them up. I have anywhere from 3 to 8 PC's on the network, plus 1-4 Laptops, 1-4 Cellphones, 3 3D printers, a security system, a 5G Cell Booster from Sprint, and 1-2 printers all at once. LAN and WLAN, through the Grande provided modem/router, and a DELL PowerConnect 2716 router. They just upgraded to 1 GIG speeds in my neighborhood, and I have been enjoying it immensely. Overall I thoroughly enjoy Grande Internet service and hope they offer the same 1 GIG when I move soon! I would highly recommend that you switch to Grande if it's available in your area, I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Inconsistent speeds. Responsive customer service line, but good luck booking a service appointment in a reasonable time. I have been experiencing intermittent internet cut-outs for almost a year and they have not solved the issue. Techs make a quick fix, the service comes back on, and they leave without resolving the problem. Issue has gotten worse the more they mess with it.

When we initially got on Grande, we loved it. However like all these providers, they have inched up to where we are paying double what we paid before. In the past if you called them for help, they immediately answered. Now I am on hold for 20 to 25 minutes. We are considering a change.

For me, technical support is the most important criteria. Grande has come through with fast, accurate support every time without the long hold times waiting to talk to a human.

Best Internet Provider, hands down

Grande is fantastic, they offer great internet speeds at decent prices. Right now I get 400 Mbps for $70/mo.

Grande video on demand

on May 01, 2020

I have been a Grande customer for years. I am very happy with their service as a whole. I can actually reach a real person when I have a problem. The only thing I am not happy with is their video on demand. Because of the Covid-19 news updates/conferences, I have had to watch one of my shows at Video on demand. It should be called "Commercials on demand". I have to set through at least 10 to 12 commercials to watch 3 or 4 minutes of my show. That's why I have and pay for 2 Tivo's, so I can record my shows and watch them when I want and not have to watch an endless amount of commercials. It is very annoying to have to watch the same commercials over and over.

Amazing Speed

5.00 Stars

on July 01, 2018

A great internet service provider with blazing speeds, and amazing customer support that actually knows their stuff. My only concern from using the service is the random downtimes that occur every couple months (~8) that can last even up to 2 days. However, they seem to handle the situation very seriously and keep your happiness at their top concern. Another downside is the terrible Arris routers, which I am not subjective or biased to not use, but they are not very good. However, with the price you are spending on such amazing speeds, there is not much to argue about the routers they provide when you can just buy a different one, after all they do not make their own... 4.75 stars, all 5 stars except reliability. Thank you for being an impressive and professional service grandecom, i appreciate the way that you care about your customers and provide this service for such a price.

Customer reviews are an essential part of our mission to make choosing a broadband provider easy.

Our review policy is simple: be helpful, be relevant, and be specific. When writing your review, please support your rating with specific, detailed reasoning.

Before publishing, we closely cross-examine reviews for red flags associated with biased sources. Reviews featuring irrelevant statements or all-caps “rants” are removed, since they are not helpful to consumers looking for fact-based insights.

Reviews that have been considered useful, but contained bad language or content that could lead to legal issues, have been edited to display only relevant information.

Grande Communications Internet Reviews FAQ

Grande Internet reviews aggregated and displayed above are sourced from current Grande Internet customers. As of 2020, 69.6 percent of customer reviews we've received had a favorable impression of Grande's Internet service.

Grande Internet Reviews: How Are They Sourced?

We use IP-verification to ensure that the people leaving reviews are, in fact, on a Grande network. This also helps make it difficult for any one customer to leave multiple reviews. To help reduce “revenge” reviews and rants, we also prompt Grande customers visiting other parts of the BroadbandNow site to leave a review and star rating. This helps balance out the reviews between positive and negative customer experiences.

Why Don’t I See My Grande Review?

Grande reviews shown here are filtered to remove reviews that don’t include useful information, or that are difficult to understand due to “ranting” and confusing grammar. In some cases, we may correct minor spelling errors and typos in approved reviews, but they are otherwise unaltered. Star reviews are not altered or filtered in any way.

Common Positive and Negative Comments in Grande Reviews

Analyzing reviews we’ve receive about Grande Internet service so far, the most common complaints tend to be about customer service. Overall, customers have complained that Grande’s customer service can be frustrating when trying to get help on basic tasks like resetting a router.

On the other hand, positive reviews of Grande have had good things to say about the speeds, unlimited data for cord cutters, and the fact that Grande doesn’t track your traffic the way some ISPs are known to do. Grande gets strong marks for being a fast, privacy-conscious provider when compared with the more corporate Internet and cable providers customers are used to.
