Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Salem
Excellent service for a high speed connection
Wave has been excellent service at a fantastic price for a high-speed connection. We have had maybe 3 loss of service in 14 months that lasted for maybe an hour.
Comcast's Internet service meets my expectations, but their X1 services leave me feeling discontent about their services overall.
Contrary opinion: Comcast is good
It may be a regional thing, but around here Comcast is good. I have always had courteous and helpful contacts with customer service, good experiences with appointments and installs. I am a Triple Play customer and I feel it is price competitive to other customers. Rarely (almost never) goes down.
