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.

Chet O|2015-08-30

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.
