Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Wausau

Good service for the $$

Customer service: Good, had a tech who was late for the install but Charter advertises on time or $20 credit (which they gave me without much hassle). Reliability: Fairly decent, although they are doing some upgrades around here to get ready for the 1 Gb / 940 Mb service. It usually is working without much issue. Any outages are usually due to the upgrades. The CEO said that they were going for 1 Gig for most areas this year, with a free upgrade to 200 Mbps for those on the 100 Mbps service. Speed: Signed up when it was 60 Mbps, they upgraded it for FREE to 100 Mbps... cannot complain about that. :) Overall Value: Not bad for the price, I have 100 Mbps for $39.99 per month.
