Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Covington

Wasn't bad until..

It has been stable with decent customer service, but way overpriced for the speeds available. Now there is a data cap.

Thank you!

We absolutely LOVE our new service with Lumos! We now have HD TV, telephone and fiber optics Internet and could not be happier.
