Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in NYC


Time Warner couldn't find my order. Had three different reps give me totally contradictory info. In the end had one dept blaming the other. Manager wouldn't even take a complaint to fix the order. Cancelled Time warner. Don't use this service.

Whenever I've had to deal with customer service for Time Warner they've been great. So, great customer service. The problem comes from needing to contact customer service so many times. In my previous apartment we had multiple issues with stability and connection and the excuse given was that we were too near other apartments and possibly microwaves. In a high rise. In Manhattan. This is not an excuse.

AT&T Customer

I'm never disappointed with the quality of the site. When it's available for me to be attached, all is good!

AT&T Customer

I've never had any questions! And, I am a question person! The only thing that I have wondered about, was why I didn't have AT&T, before now! I could've had it when I used the cable companies for everything...

Service has been pretty good, the internet is normally fast, taking a couple of seconds for things to load up. There's about three or four different devices that use the internet at the same time in our household, and it tends to slow down, or completely give up because of all the electronics connected wirelessly to the internet.

Internet speed is very reliable and fast but I feel I am being overcharged as the tv channels are just average. I would be getting the same channels with cablevision or another vendor. I only have one tablet connected to my WiFi which enables me to get the maximum speed.

I have done a lot of comparison, fortunately I have options as to who my service provider is. I believe RCN does offer the best deal and have been a customer for over two years. When i have a problem it is solved. Although I would like them to reduce the need to send service technicians (why cant they just send me the modem to install myself?) they make it convenient to set up appointments and the service people are knowledgeable. My one gripe would be with their customer service interface to have a bit of an upgrade. At times I believe the IM function on the website is flawed and end up being kicked out without talking to anyone. It would be nice to have more customer service features available in a mobile app. This would make contacting them easier during times of service issues.

Time Warner is the exclusive provider in my area in NYC. Pro: Internet is as advertised so far. Only occasional short down time. Price is only okay, could be cheaper. However due to the exclusiveness they are not pressed to lower price. Cons: Anything you want to get done in the store is a hassle through dozens of people waiting. Modem and Router cost you monthly rent.

My internet speed is decent. I have a mid range level which works because I just use it for internet surfing and a small amount of online game playing. There are certain times in the day when it lags a little, but overall I'm content. I rarely have an outage, and when I have a problem TWC is pretty easy to get a hold of. My largest complaint is the price of course. For what I have it really should cost about half the price.
