Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Ghent
Charter Spectrum Internet IS available in Ghent, NY
It’s been two months since the launch of Spectrum Internet and despite what New York State and some friends of mine might say, it is a great service. I remain cautiously optimistic since I’ve had it for only two months, but so far so good. Customer service lacks in knowledge of my specific area and so that is a problem. Otherwise, I’ve had yet to encounter any rudeness whatsoever. Overall, the service is reliable, fast, and so far it’s been worth the money.
