Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Saint Louis
Please choose a different provider
There is a terrible problem with the customer service. No one pays the same price for identical services. Cancellation was difficult. Will not send a final correct bill of what I actually owe. Again it is all about poor customer service. They do not care if they keep customers or not. Very disappointed.
