I have been very pleased with the lack of outages in my area. I have both an At&t along with Xfinity (purchased so we hopefully never loose internet). Many of my companies data backups run to my home. So internet for me is extremely vital.

Constantly inundated with calls to upgrade. Bait and switch tactics attempted by them.We don't want a contract. Speed is slowed down and we have to wait a good while for a page to load. We will be switching soon.
