Spectrum internet is slow on a good day, and non-existent on a bad day (i.e., most days). Our internet goes out at least ten times a day (I notice because I work from home). Even when using an Ethernet cable, the internet manages not to work. I have tried calling customer service and was only able to reach a recording. When I selected the "Have a representative call me back" option, I was called back promptly, before being "transferred"--to a busy signal. Every time I go to Walmart I am harassed by Spectrum employees asking who my internet provider is. I tell them, "You guys. And we hate it." After trying all the options available to get what we pay for, we're still being charged for a service that works maybe 40% of the time. If we had any other option, we'd take it. Horrible, horrible provider with equally ridiculous "customer service"--if "service" can even apply to a recording.

My internet service is good, but they are continuously going up on the price without any added value. I'm looking to find something less expensive for the same service.

The service and speed of my internet is great. I wish the pricing was a little lower. But I would recommend to others.
