Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Central Point
Rock Solid Service
When I first moved out to Sam's Valley, I was crushed to find that the ISP providing DSL to the house I just bought was cutting off access. This was problematic as I work remotely, and I ended up spending $250 a month through a cellular ISP, just to be able to work. Rogue Broadband came out and did a free site survey, and I found that I was able to get service through them. I've had Rogue Broadband for almost 4 years now, and I can't say enough good things about this company. I've used cable Internet, DSL, satellite, and 4G LTE Internet, and I'm finding that Rogue Broadband is one of the most valuable and reliable. It doesn't even blip when it's raining, snowing, and even when it's smoky! As I work in IT, reliability is extremely important for what I do for work, as I need a stable Internet, 24/7, in case I get called to fix something. Rogue Broadband is more than enough for me to work and stream videos at the same time. Also, the service offers low latency, so online gaming is fantastic, and web pages load almost instantly. Not everyone needs a wireless ISP, but if you can't get wired Internet, contact Rogue Broadband and see if they can service your location.
