Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Winston Salem
Not that great lately.
I've had Spectrum for a good amount of years and I've not had too many problems until the last year or so. My wifi signal is terrible, my on-demand service hardly ever works and my internet goes out at least every week. I have one cable box and one router.
Thanks to Carinne at the Winston-Salem Hanes Mall Spectrum store for taking the time to help with a voicemail issue (which required her to call Apple and get their assistance to fix the problem). It was all done with patience and professionalism. Some of the others in the store (based on my previous visits there) could learn from her. Thanks Carinne!
Good value and priced just right
I use the internet along with my Roku TV and 2 smartphones. My service is great and streaming is very good.
