Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Shrewsbury
Great service for over 16 years
I've had SELCO cable internet for over 16 years and have always had excellent reliable service. I've been working from home for years and haven't experienced an outage that has impacted my ability to work. Customer service is always helpful and they respond to questions in a timely manner. If i could ding them for anything, it would be the seemingly glacier pace of the fiber rollout.
