Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Buffalo


I have been a loyal customer with Time Warner, but lately their rates have increased dramatically. I mentioned to them that I needed to shop around for a better rate and service and. They never encouraged me not to! Of course I believe my call went to India, and the representative really couldn't understand what I was trying to say to him, wish I could of spoke to someone in the US! Not happy with outsourcing representatives in a another country!

Time Warner Cable is great for their internet, but they are very pricy. Sometimes they like to charge more money without telling you first, so your bills will be more expensive sometimes. I have called a bunch of times to get it lowered and they are good about doing that!
