Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Mount Vernon
Okay service, TERRIBLE customer service and policies
Called to end service due to move. We ended up keeping service one extra day (after the end of billing cycle) and was told by a customer service representative they prorate; they don't. Got charged another entire month of service for one day. The representative either lied or was not informed, but they will not cancel the bill or accept my partial payment. Horrible policy and customer service despite the misinformation given. Would never recommend.
