Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Rio Rancho


Tech installed my internet and modem today. He was professional, courteous and helpful. A great experience today. Thank you.

If you're looking for unlimited internet with no data caps this is the one

CenturyLink is a good ISP, if you live a mile away from their main box then you'll get 20Mbps, but if you live more then a mile then you won't get fast speeds, and they do have good customer service, good value and good modems.

Data cap needs to be increased or eliminated

After 3 months and 3 notices that I had to exceed my data limit, I received my latest bill from Cable One almost doubling my monthly fee for internet. I called other providers to compare and they offer 1 TB of data for basically the same price that Cable One offers only 300 GB, the speed may be slightly slower but these days, speed is not as much as an issue as data. In today's world where video streaming is becoming the norm, and game consoles are allowing people to download their favorite games directly to the gaming system, data is becoming much more important than speed. Most internet providers have recognized this and have either raised the caps on their data limit or ignore it all together. Cable One needs to get with the times and realize that speed is no longer the selling point for internet, Data is.
