Data Caps in Olive Branch
Data from our research team suggests that top providers use data caps for their residential Internet connections.

Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Olive Branch
Terribly inconsistent service. Always rotating between offline and online. It's not a hardware problem (we have a new router and modem, and they replaced the cables coming into the house). If I paid a percentage of the bill correlating to the time my WiFi has worked then I should be paying about $1 a month.
Great technician Mike Harrison
Need action, not promises
We have not had dependable service in over a year. A city utility company pulled up and broke a line. Xfinity spliced the line as a temporary fix but never made permanent. We began getting intermittent outages that have progressively gotten worse to the point we lose internet several times a day and at times several days at a time. Service techs come out, know what the problem is, but put in service tickets to repair the line and no one shows to do the work. I like most people, use my internet for more than entertainment and really need a dependable internet connection. I really want to like and stay with Xfinity but they need to meet their service commitments in a timely manner.
I have used this service for several years and love the speed and connection. Great Service!
