Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Billerica
Good product but terrible customer service
Verizon FiOS has a good product with terrible customer service backing it up. Their "agents" are a little more than glorified salespeople who have no clue what they're talking about unless it comes to finding some additional service to charge you for. Their call system is absolutely terrible which starts out with a bunch of computerized prompts that you must go through each and every time under the guise of account security but are no more than a nuisance. If you are lucky enough to reach a real live human being, you are treated to a very polite, very well meaning person who has not been trained in the slightest and has little to no clue what you or they are talking about. FiOS is cheap for a reason, they have fast internet and literally no other redeeming qualities.
