Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Twin Falls
I've been using T-Mobile for 5 yrs and have never had an issue with coverage from living in California to living in Idaho now. Their no contract or additional add-on fees make it nice.
If you go over your (small) monthly allotment they will offer a higher tier plan for 3 months or terminate your service. The internet itself is pretty reliable, only going down for a few minutes every day but you'll never get your advertised speed.
