Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Milton
Xfinity internet from Comcast is great. It is reliable and have a good speed. What I didn't like was when I got a bundle package (TV +Internet) then decided later on to discontinue the TV services and keep the internet only, my internet bill went up to the roof. An incredible bill of $107.32 per month. Even though I like the service, I'm very disappointed with the price I ended paying. Overall, I recommend just being careful with the bundle packages.
