Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Baltimore

Good customer service

I went to the Xfinity site at the Rotunda in Baltimore, MD. I had an excellent experience. I want to thank the rep for his help, he answered all my questions, set up my phone, made sure all my information downloaded. He was pleasant and the customer service was awesome.

Exactly as Described

I've been using their 10/5 service for almost four years and it has been exactly what I expected. They provide a reliable 10/5 connection for the price we agreed too. I've used a speed test many times and it is almost always is as advertised. Their support has been top-notch. They are a little expensive, but it's understandable given the technology employed. Overall - very satisfied.

It works, mostly

Most of the time it works well. I haven't really tested the download speed, so I'm not sure if we're getting what they promise. We have occasional times where the video streaming gets hung up. They did just raise the rates on us, I'm not sure what their excuse for that was.
