Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Des Plaines

AT&T Customer

I cannot watch movies because I am too far from ATT's "node". When I try to watch a Viedo it get intrupted a few dozen times with the running circle as it is loading. Except for this shortcomming my general service from ATT has be excellent.
