Cesar L | 2014-06-22

Comcast internet can be really fast at times, but I've had connection issues frequently where I'm unable to connect and/or the internet is really slow. The price is extremely high in my opinion, specially if you combine it with a TV package. I've tried most of the other services available, and Comcast speed is definitely the best (even based on price). Customer Service sometimes is amazing, other times it has been mediocre.
