Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Clayton
Excellent Service and Support
Westelcom exceeded my expectations in Service, Support, and the Speed of the connection.
Streaming 1 day per cycle only before internet is capped
I can stream Netflix for a day and them the internet is reduced so much that Netflix won't even stream. I'm basically paying for 1 day of unlimited access and the rest of the month I'm watching DVDs. It's not worth it so I'm cancelling.
