Data Cap Issues and Video Streaming Around Edinburg

Data from our research team shows that common providers currently place some sort of limit on streaming for their home broadband plans. Data caps are controversial because subscribers view caps as a strategy for limiting "cord cutting", while providers maintain that they are a necessary strategy as they struggle to manage network congestion. In either case, the issue is over-the-top streaming services, which can eat up anywhere from 1–7GB per hour.

Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Edinburg

Grande Quality Declining

I have been with Grande since 2003. Since the takeover by the new owners, Grande's quality and services have seriously declined. The hardware I had pre-sellout would cover a larger area. The new version of Grande no longer offers true tech support. They only train-employ Customer Service Reps [salespersons]. So if you have any kind of technical question, the answer is "Sorry we have not been trained in that area". I called for a simple firewall question and that was my answer. Grande is being turned into Comcast-Spectrum, all of the giants we all hate. Customers go to Grande for value and a relationship. That is gone now. When a company selling internet service cannot even answer a simple question about how that service works, well you decide, is this where you want to spend your money?

Good Value

Great value for your money. Not very fast but constant speed about 99% of the time. No down time.
