Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Natchez
Makes you count data usage as if your life depended on it.
Can't comfortably watch Youtube, Netflix, Hulu, etc. comfortably without putting the video to an ugly quality just so you don't go over the cap. They increase the speed over the time I had their service, but what good is bigger hose when you still have the tiny reservoir to draw that water from? It just makes it easier to mistakenly go over cap. Get your own router, install DD-WRT on it, and monitor your data closely. It's like we're still in 2005 or something with this slim selection of ISPs, and they like it like that. I'm actively wishing a competitor comes along.
