Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Worcester
Over charged and under serviced
On year 1 of the contract, you get all you see. Starting year 2, they swap movie channels with less desirable ones, stating it's an outside company that we have no control over it. But they have that built in to the plan before you even look at it. Sign a new one and you get it back. When finally pressed for an answer, they point to the fine print you signed at the end of the transaction.
The best representative ever
Mindy in the billing department, I hope u are reading this or get acknowledged for this statement I am about to give. I have had the worst experience of all with Cox and I was on the phone with 6 different representatives who kept telling me different reasons why I was getting billed a ridiculous about of money and I had to repeat my story for 2 whole hours before I met Mindy from the billing department. She helped me understand that I was not getting over charged for opening an account or by transferring accounts. Mindy explained to me that there were charges not meant to be there and she took care of it. And she explained to me what I was getting billed the remainder for and I was so relieved and understood everything she told me. In such a state where I was so angry, she spoke to me in a calm but vocal voice to where I can hear each word. I thank you so much Mindy for helping me even when I already canceled Cox. I wish you forever patience in your job in the future.
Tech from Albany NY helped me get my internet up and running within minutes. She was very professional, I would pick her any day to help me or my family members with our Fios internet problems. Thank you.
Never any trouble
I get great reception throughout New England and download speed is fast.
Mediocore Internet Service
The internet speeds that are advertised are seldom realized. The service seems stable most of the time but the bandwidth is most definitely lacking.
