Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Riverton

Internet service

Internet service always drops and we will go without internet at hours at a time before coming back. I was paying $80 a month but the price jumped to $100 for a basic internet only plan. I can't justify paying $100 a month for service that doesn't work most of the time. They sound like a great deal at first but after 1 year, they will just jump your price.

4/5 Stars

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.

Vivint internet experience

I've been happy with my decision to switch to Vivint for my internet. The price has been what I was promised and the service has met my needs.
