Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Waterville
I pay for high-speed internet, they promised 100Mbps speeds and I am lucky if I get 40. And the only time I get the 40 is after I run speed test 3 or 4 times. My first test run is always under 10Mbps and sometimes under 5. When I spoke to a rep while testing, I got a 78. Still short of the service they promised to provide.
