Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Woodstock
Decent, but expensive
Comcast Internet service is decent, although the upload speed could be improved and the 'data usage plan' is just a money grab.
Limited Hot Spot use
As a Verizon wireless customer, if I pay for unlimited data then I should be able to use it as I please. But after 15 GB, they slow it down. I use my hot spot to stream movies and TV. Comcast Xfinity keeps pilfering me with fees and their rates keep going up.
