Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Mount Horeb
MHTC for the WIN
Moved to Dodgeville in snowy Jan 2016, called MHTC for options, they didn't have a line to the house dug so they ran a new line at no charge for me. Also when they increased their backbone, they upgraded their plans and we went from 10mbps to 35mbps with no price change! They offer faster speeds up to 100mbps but I don't need it. Go with MHTC to get more reliable speeds. DSL doesn't slow down when the entire neighborhood gets on the internet like cable does so I see full speeds all day/night long.
