Data Caps Around Baytown

Data collected by our market research team shows that popular providers currently place some sort of limit on data use for their residential broadband plans. Data caps are a public issue because subscribers see caps as a tactic for limiting "cord cutting", while providers insist that they are a reasonable strategy for managing network traffic. In either case, the problem is the same: over-the-top streaming, which can eat up anywhere from one to seven Gigabytes per hour.

Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Baytown

Horrible service, speed

Don't even think about trying to speak to a real live person unless you have an hour or so to spare waiting on hold. The automated line takes forever to navigate through. Their wireless system is antiquated at best and promised speeds are for hardwired connections ONLY. As soon as Spectrum comes to the area, I'm switching. I hate the monopolies of certain areas that these cable/internet providers have. It limits consumer choice and forces us to have to deal with these corporations who try get the most amount of money out of their customers. Definitely try to find another company if you can. Xfinity/Comcast is not worth it.

Data cap unacceptable

Service is good, support is good but data cap is unacceptable and $50 extra for unlimited data plan is quite expensive but overall it's good. What they need to do is increase their speeds and remove that data cap.
