Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Madison
Service was absolutely the best!
So, what with the "stay at home" in WI, both hubby & I are working from home on laptops. Over the last month, my lowest speed has been a .15, to where I have to go into a branch. The tech was awesome, checking & replacing our fittings and found that a cable outside had either been chewed by critters or chopped by maintenance. We are now running on wifi at 220mbps+ and better than that hardwired. We're paying for 200mbps so we're absolutely thrilled! Thanks for being the perfect tech!
I'm really happy with Spectrum!
I was looking at canceling Spectrum only to save money, at the cost of no convenience. Rep from the Austin Retention Dept took my call and offered me a $24/mo savings! SOLD! This is more financially manageable and still gets me great internet! Spectrum! Keep employees like him, they are your backbone and your image.
Good service but too expensive
I've always gotten good service -- I've never had to schedule customer service with Charter. But it's just too expensive. $190.00 for a phone/T.V./Internet bundle. I can't afford it anymore. It's just too much.
5 Stars--Hands down, the most reliable provider in the NW
Competitive rates, Same day turnaround on quotes, with excellent Customer Service. Bandwidth, speed, and latency delivered reliably, and as advertised. The most "solid" provider in the PNW. Thank you!
TDS has been reliable and helpful but limited bandwidth
We have been TDS customers for 15+ years with DSL connection with speeds of 3-4 Mbps. In our neighborhood they "rent" phone lines from ATT (Westmorland neighborhood- Madison, WI). I don't have any specific complaints aside from the slower bandwidth. Because of work needs and the slower bandwidth, I will be converting to a different ISP.
