Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Raleigh
Internet speed is good
I get 200+ Mbps for the cheapest plan available at the time of writing this review. The only complaint that I have is the price hikes. Internet prices should be the same for old and new customers.
Not a completely satisfactory experience.
Most professional services businesses count on "24/7" reliable internet and VOIP connections to be competitive and provide an appropriate level of responsiveness. This company is reliable MOST of the time, however, if you have an outage you can count on being down for a day or two. Tens of thousands of dollars can be lost in one day so it matters. Further, the company consistently offers slower speeds than sales representatives offer. If you must increase bandwidth and need new equipment to accommodate it, you may be waiting for weeks.
