Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Sarasota


When it's working its great. The problem is the it's not reliable. Ot goes down at least three times a week. You would be streaming a movie and all of the sudden it's gone. When it's up the speed is enough to support two or three devices.

Very good availability. I haven't noticed any downtime in the last three months. I do notice some slow down during certain periods but otherwise excellent service.

Comcast has had almost 100% availability since I started using it over a year ago. I have noticed periods of slower performance in the evenings. I believe cost for Comcast ISP service is on the high side compared to other ISPs.
