Sheri D | 11-04-2023

We have found it infuriating to get service on our internet service. The Tech person insisted on trying to solve the problem via phone call, which messed things up more and then we just received a bill for $100. We already paid an outside tech $100 to come in and fix it. Even the thought of having to call xfinity gives me an anxiety attack. We will be changing service soon.

Overall, My internet service is average at best for speed. At certain times of day there is the usual slow down of downloading times making it very frustrating for completing applications for work on Line.

When thinking internet we all want reliability and affordability. I have tried the different services in the area and reliability of AT&T DSL is five out of five until we get the bill and they have charged a fee for data that makes affordability of the service go out the window. The cable internet is oooohhhh so nice with Comcast .. affordability on the other hand is terrible .. with the Data era among us .. we need unlimited at a flat rate so we can use our desk tops again!! Seems like my phone is all I use anymore and sitting at my desk signed on to anything but my cell phone 4g is the way to go .. truest it's a flat rate . AT&T you get an A for speed but F for price .. Comcast gets AAA for cable internet and high speed but affordability .. D- the area doesn't seem to be price friendly so break the bank or head back to dial up ..
