Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Ironton

Unreliable and slow internet even on clear days

Service seems to be getting worse with the internet going in and out and speeds slow and nowhere near the advertised 30Mbps! Technology’s getting better yet our service is still flakey even in good weather! Promised better service soon with/when new satellite are added but never happened.
