Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in West Salem
BSpeedy internet service
I have been with BSpeedy for several years and have excellent service from them and quick response if a problem arises. The only reason I am searching other providers is because of health reasons and we need to move closer to my daughter who lives in Wheeler, IL. I just hope I can find a provider as good as the one I will be leaving.
