Eunji J | 08-21-2023

Do not use Astound Broadband. They have the worst service and customer support I’ve ever seen. I asked to cancel my service and got charged in the next cycle, they claimed that the discontinuation request was canceled. Prior to this, I’ve been told I would only get charged for a seasonal discontinuation because I was moving and would not have to pay for installation if I paid the seasonal fee, but then another representative told me I did have to pay for installation. All the representatives say something different and make it so difficult for you to stop service. Do NOT choose Astound.

Comcast cable is the fastest available where I am located but it is bundled with TV which is worse than broadcast. Their service repairmen are not particularly knowledgeable and have wasted my time and money more than once.
