Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Valley View

I've used SOL Broadband for 10+ years

Understand that folks like me in the country have limited options so comparing wireless line-of-sight Internet to high-speed fiber in the city is silly. I've had satellite, cell and even tried ISDN. SOL is the best service available in this area and I experienced downtime maybe twice per year and one of those is scheduled maintenance. The price is very reasonable compared to cellular data or ISDN. Satellite is a non-starter for me because they do not offer unlimited access and if you've ever had satellite TV when it's raining, you'll understand the other problem with satellite, not to mention latency if you're trying to work over VPN to your office. I work from home 3-5 days a week and recommend SOL highly.


Fiber with great speed even in my rural area!
