Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Rochester


Many files and documents are searched and downloaded without problems. Two of us are heavy users for school and professional work. Only one problem in 6+ years and TWC fixed it next day.

We lose service at least once per month, and when it's something that can't be cured with a simple restart, things get ridiculous. The people who field phone calls claim that they write up repair tickets, but nothing seems to happen to those tickets. As I write this from a coffee shop, we've been without service at home for a week, despite having made numerous calls and having been promised that someone will show up or call the next day. Dreadful company.

Has issues of spikes in the latency which are quiet frequent. Otherwise good speeds and decent service for the price.

Time warner has provided our cable and internet for ten years. They have been good on fixing problems when they occur. I would recommend them if somebody is shopping around. You do get a pretty good product for the price

My internet speed is amazingly fast. The service could be better though as I have to unplug my modem to reset it often. The price is okay but for the service it could be much better.

The speed of the service is the best around my area. I do have the more expensive internet but I feel like it is worth it. It is a lot more expensive than the average though. I don't really have any problems and the few that I have had get fixed quickly.
