Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Middletown Springs
VTel gigabit fiber to the home is the best.
I have been a VTel customer since I moved to Springfield several years ago. The service is second to none! I get 12 times the speed I got with my cable ISP on their highest tier package prior to moving here and signing up for VTel service for $25 less per month! I typically get speeds of 850 Mbps - 900 Mbps symmetrical when I speed test which isn't often because it's always flawless and I never have any need to check my speed. VTel is wonderful. It's the reason I live in Springfield, and it's the reason I will stay here. VTel internet is the best internet.
