Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Elkin

Portable, but limited Mb access

You pay per Mb. it gets more expensive the more you use. If you use it mush for movies or other video intensive purposes, it gets very expensive fast. We rarely watch videos but run out every month on the 2nd highest plan they offer. Seems faster than the dish satellite we used to have. Nice if they would make the system competitive with cable. We can't get direct wired cable where we are.
