Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Henderson
I have the bundle package which includes internet, all premium channels, WIFI, and telephone. I'm disappointed due to the fact that most of the better movies are filtered to the movie hoarders such as Netflix and Prime Video and the remainder are filtered to the premium channels. Not happy!
Internet service ok, cable not so much
The internet has been dependable for the most part (mostly just regular maintenance). However, plans get expensively fast for decent speed. The cable box on the other hand is the worst, it lags so much at times it's practically unusable. When trying to search any on-demand functions, it sometimes takes minutes for button presses to update, it also can take 20 minutes to scroll down a list of on-demand shows to find the show you want oftentimes overshooting back and forth many times due to excessive button delay. The box often gets confused about what channels are supposed to be in your plan and what channels aren't. Telling you that you need to subscribe to channels that you should already have. (This happens a lot with On demand as well when trying to watch things like HBO On demand.) If you call and complain, they tell you can upgrade to a newer box at a monthly price increase.
