Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Chattanooga

Awesome service

I have been with EPB since day one! The company has great customer service and the best Internet speeds in the country. During my entire time with EPB, I have had maybe 3 instances where I had minor problems but all it took was a short call to customer service and it was fixed. I will be lifelong customer!!!

Love EPB!!!

Our biggest regret moving out of the area is going to be losing EPB! Their customer service is superb and their apps are always up to date with any outages.. Rates are very competitive and you will never find faster internet. In fact, they have bumped up our speeds twice at least in the last few years, free of charge. We love EPB!

EPB has spoiled us

When we go to other parts of the U.S., we realize how spoiled we are with EPB's broadband service. Even with the "slow" speed, 100 Mbps, it is lightning fast and highly reliable.

Best in the nation!

I manage internet service at 30 locations in the South East. EPB is hands down the best ISP. Great customer service, great up time, fast speeds, great value!

After living with slow and unreliable internet and poor customer service...

We love EPB. EPB is reliable and customer service is quick to respond. We have had a few hiccups here and there including one billing issue but they work well with customers so it's not so bad!
