Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Morgantown
Absolutely only internet option available at service location
Customer service is great, everyone is friendly and helpful. However, satellite internet is exactly what you would imagine. Nonexistent on cloudy days much less rainy or stormy weather. Of course, it would be nice to have access to the internet to receive weather updates during severe weather. We were told when signed "the contract" that satellites still received signal just fine during stormy weather. Sometimes even sunny days there is reception issues-I believe they blame it on solar flares? I would compare it to slow broadband on good days and dial-up (if it's working at all) on bad days. It is definitely not worth the price but unfortunately, we have no other option at this service site, not even a landline.
Good when it works
Poor customer services. The Internet is fast but goes out a lot. Half of the cable channels don’t work. It cannot use on-demand.
We have had Bluegrass for a number of years. It has worked well. It bogs down from time to time but for the most part it is fine. Cannot stream and be online at the same time but other wise fine.
