Horrible horrible horrible service, never consistent with speeds. During the day when needed most for work, totally unreliable!! I pay for 1000MBPS yet have never seen anything close. I would leave tomorrow if there were another option where I live. If you have another option, save yourself the headache and go with anyone but Atlantic (now known as Breezeline)!!!
