Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Milwaukee
I've contracted broadband service (such as Verizon FIOS) all over the country (from Maryland to Washington state) and have never had an issue with service being unreasonable or unaffordable. I currently pay $49.95 for 1Gb service at my home in Wisconsin and I am locked into that price as long as I have service. Here in Iowa, South Slope wants $199 for it. Seriously, four times more? That is simply taking advantage of people. It does not cost that much to provide the service over fiber. In Iowa, I was forced to go to 60Mb service for $55, so I'm paying more for only 16% of the service I get elsewhere. Admittedly, there are few options besides South Slope but they are being unethical with their prices.
Not getting good service
Spectrum Internet is good when it doesn’t go down. And the cable box constantly buffers and is very slow. I had to replace the cable box several times but still experiencing same issues. On a positive note, Spectrum does give you a great time allowance to pay your bill before they disconnect your service.
Although I've often had to call to have them correct my bill because added charges would show up with no explanation, I have been able to keep them to their promises and I have found their service dependable.
