Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Portland


Have not seen any increase in service just continual price increases. Speed varies on internet connection so much so some days that it is useless to even try to get anything done. Currently shopping for another option but market is limited here.

They blame our router/modem for our slow internet. The price keeps going up for our slow service. They know they have no one to compete against so customer service doesn't matter.

The folks at the other end of the Time Warner Cable support line provide varying levels of customer service. Some are excellent and some are demoralizing.

Time Warner Cable is the only option for DSL in my area, therefore unless we want to do without high speed internet, they are the company that we have to go to. I think the price of internet is too expensive. I think that TWC has terrible customer service. I have never spoken with a person in their customer service department that made me feel confident in their abilities or in the abilities of the company. And lastly, and somewhat most importantly, the speed and ability of our wifi (even though we have the newest and best router that they offer) is terrible. Even being in the same room as the router doesn't help.

Time Warner Cable has virtually no competition in the area so they feel that they can set whatever standard they want for service and price. It's not terrible but I feel that it can definitely be better.
