Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Harlingen

Good customer service, Bad Internet connection

I have had Spectrum for years and it has always been good. Recently I have had intermittent internet connection. Internet drops and goes out as it pleases. I had 3 technicians come to check and replace connectors, cables, and modem. The problem still persists. They told me that there was nothing wrong. The customer service reps were very helpful though. I wish I could be more patient.
