Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Granada
Don't change to this company
Internet speed is never what they claim it to be.There is a minimum of two to three issues per month. They always blame their slow speed on something -- it's this tower, it's that tower, it's this wire, it's this setting -- but they have never gotten the proper speed to us. I paid for 10 Meg download but it averages 3 Meg download. Customer service is a joke, you have to wait on hold for 40 minutes to get ahold of somebody and then they never fix the issues. Right now the internet has been down for two days. They are blaming the fiber optic company but will not take the blame in any way, shape or form. LTD Broadband is supplying a service -- if you're using somebody else to run said service, you need to take the blame of other company for your non service. You'd be much better off staying far away from this company.
