Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Chapel Hill


If you enjoy billing issues and being treated like a four year old then TWC is for you. Signed up for autopay two months ago and we still are getting late fees. This is the second time in as many months that TWC refuses to take my autopay until its late, then automatically takes it out anyway three days after due date incurring thirty five in fees and asking for two months of payments. When contacting TWC they will ALWAYS pass the buck to a higher up who may or may not get back to you in a timely manner. There are MANY ISPs out there. This one just doesn't get it.
