Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Ogden
Customer service for billing
There was a mistake on my bill. The customer service rep Jack was friendly and helpful and referred me to the agent that took care of my account and credited me with the overcharge. Thanks Mike. Thanks Xfinity for taking care of your customers.
Good wifi service
Great internet for the price. We were warned that within a few years we may not be able to get service due to houses and trees. We always received quick help through customer service.
I give Vivint a 4/5. Still some improvements to be made but for a young ISP, they have exceeded my expectations. I’m glad someone out there is challenging big cable companies.
50 down 10 up plan fixed wireless
Getting as advertised speeds. Paying $89.95 per month period, no rents or fees or any extras.
Perfect for me
I have read many of the reviews and have had the service for well over 2 years. I never had an issue and can watch video perfectly. I have also noticed some of these reviews when HughesNet has never priced things the way many in here have claimed. I have paid $52 for two years on a 10 GIG plan. I have watched tons of videos and never had any buffering, at all. Never had a problem.
Hughesnet is the best
I have been reading the bad reviews on this website. First of all, Hughes does not bill people $150 when most plans are $84.98 for a 20 Gig Plan. Someone posted a 20 Gig was $150. Some others have posted made claims that are totally fictitious. These are clearly not Hughesnet customers. Yes, sometimes you might get a $99 lease setup fee as of last year. The only way you will pay $150 is if you have a $99 setup fee on the promotion. Hughesnet goes by Promotion to Promotion and none of the agents has the ability to go against the promotion. Not to mention, Hughesnet is not in competition with other companies in your area. You are not obligated for service because if you fail the required Credit check then you are not obligated to have the service. I am posting this response because quite a few of these people have never had the service. For the record. I am an employee.
A little pricey, but great connection and speed.
