Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Burt
We were ecstatic to have LTD offered in our area. Previously, we had satellite service which was awful and expensive. Made the switch to a cell-based service which was ok, but limited speed and data. LTD’s service gave us the ability to reliably use the internet for daily use, kids' online gaming and security. Extremely happy with LTD customer service.
