Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Virginia Beach
Poor Speed, difficult to get help
Internet speed is not consistent. Most of the time the connection is minimal at best. Once in a while, the speed works as promised. This is all prior to when the high-speed data plan is exhausted. Once the data runs out, the connection is near impossible. I have spent way too much time trying to get through their customer service by phone and via text. The bills keep coming but not the service we are paying for. If you have another provider, check them out before going with HughesNet.
Henry in promotions department was helpful
Called in because of a promotion offered. When I had switched services, I was told email had been sent multiple times but I had never received it. Turns out email was wrong in the system. I was then told that my offer had expired and I am no longer eligible for my free chrome book. Obviously, I was very upset seeing as that was the main reason I switched providers. After talking more and being transferred between departments, I finally asked to speak with a manager of some kind. When Henry took my call, he very calmly explained to me the reason I would not be able to get a chrome book was because they aren’t partnered with Samsung anymore and the best he could do from his department was to offer me a Visa gift card for $200. While worth nowhere near the same amount, it is still much better than nothing and what I appreciated even more was his relaxed tone even though I was not relaxed. Thank you for your help, Henry.
Speed not limited by other customer usage.
I like Verizon primarily because you do not have to share the same line with other neighbors. You have one set speed. Wired providers offer a fast speed, but if everyone is watching at the same time your speed goes down proportionally.
