Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Staunton

Good value for what I get but not what was promised

I pay $29.99 for promised 60 Mbps. It has never passed 20 Mbps to my knowledge and when I have tested, it has usually been below 10 Mbps. Nonetheless, I have found the speed sufficient. But I'm getting much less than 25% of what I am paying for and the price is going to almost double. Now it is going to be raised to $49.99 but with no improvement in speed.

Ridiculously high pricing, good product

Good product and service, but ridiculously high price.
