Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Fairfax

Great Customer Service

My Uncle has been having issues with his TV and Cox came out this week to figure out the issue. Tech was wonderful from start to finish. He was very knowledgeable and pleasant to work with. He fixed the issue and answered all questions. Didn't feel rushed. It's nice to have that type of service especially now. Thank you!

Avoid new Fios Home router and Fios TV One set-top boxes

I thought it would be nice to upgrade my three set-top boxes to Fios TV One (main box and two Minis). After installing them, I learned that you need to upgrade to an expensive new router or they won't work so I paid $300 for the Fios Home router. After about 26 hours of my labor, 15 calls with tech support and customer service and three weeks of elapsed time, I have no TV service. Every support tech and every customer service rep tells me something different (and contradictory and often plainly ridiculous). I find the expensive new router no faster or better than my Actiontec MI424WR router. So now I have wasted $300, a $50 upgrade fee and 26 hours of my time, and I have no TV service. The advertised wireless TV streaming feature does not work at all and the voice remote barely works and constantly reboots itself. If your current Fios gear works, stick with it. Upgrading is not worth the risk. I may switch to Youtube TV--it's reliable and cheaper, and you don't need to rent set-top boxes. I don't want to cut the cord, but what is a person supposed to do? I have no TV service and can't spend any more time fixing it.
