Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Crystal Lake


We were happy with our service and rate. However, just got the bill and it has jumped to almost twice what is was. We called to find out what happened, and we did not receive an answer. Our only options were to purchase TV service for an additional fee. I am tired of paying for poor service, and I do not want television or a phone! Not only that, but I found a lower priced offer on the Comcast website and selected it to purchase, but they called me back saying that it was not available. I have nothing good to say about Comcast. There is no reason we should be paying these insane fees for something that is necessary in today's world. The rest of the world is laughing at us! And what happened to net neutrality? Aren't we not supposed to have to pay more for better speed? I am one very unhappy customer.
