Cox continually lies about their speed packages and guarantees of pricing. Their speed never even comes close to the package rate and they try to increase the cost every few months in hopes it won't be noticed, even when confirming a 12 month lock on rates. Crooks.

Randall L. Stephenson, Amazing that AT&T bald face lies and doesn’t keep it’s word. I called AT&T because my bill has always been higher than I was told it would be. The AT&T representative agreed and said she had reduced my monthly bill. She said she was checking on refunds for my past over payments, and the cut off. I called back and the answering AT&T representative said he saw the reduction of my bill and her notes about a refund. The representative then transferred me to an AT&T representative that completely contradicted the last representative and said there was no bill reduction and no notes. What a lying company. Unless AT&T keeps it’s word, I’m canceling and taking legal action. Sincerely, Clarence Jasmagy 619-486-7505 1 N. Mollison Ave El Cajon CA 92021 clarencejasmagy@gmail.com cc: esq.

Mark M | 01-30-2015

Cox Communications internet speed and performance is by far the best hands down. But where they fall short is there bills and price bundles. In the past 5 to 6 years that I have had them off and on, I have never received a bill that is what they quote me and it is not that I am ordering any movies or any extras either. I get my bill and it is always more than what I was quoted. Also there customer service really needs some attention also. I don't know what happened over the years. I believe that they let it go to there head and lost touch with what really should matter to them there customers. Last when I call there office in reference to the bill amounts, they really don't have a good explanation other that is what it is and what is my problem just pay the additional amount and get over it. Or go some where else. Wow great product but lame personnel running the business. That is to bad because sooner or later there will be another provider that can provide a service as good as their's and I know a lot of people that would leave in a heart beat. Thank you

Service is good most of the time. Would like to have faster service in my area (not exactly a remote area). Fastest available in my area is a quarter of what's available in other areas.
