Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in New Bedford


Comcast has slow start up and the service techs don't show up when scheduled wasting your day. They also go up on prices without notification knowing you're on a limited budget.

I have been using Comcast for over 30 years or more, I think since they opened up I have been with them, I have had my ups and downs, like sometimes my internet would run slow or my television wouldn't get reception or my phone will go out.. Often they fix it with a signal or sometimes they would have to send someone out to fix the problem, 80% of the time I have had no problem with the person they send but you always get a couple that think they know everything when they don't or the attitude... In total I can honestly say that 90% I am very happy with my Comcast/Exfinity service, I am glad that they are starting to get better working people not only for the outdoors or door to door but also on the phone for you when you need help.. Before 40% could actaully speeak English at least now 70% can and that you can understand what they are saying to you...
