Consistently the very WORST "service" we've ever had! Weekly outages and near weekly appointments to have a service technician come out. Company refuses to repair obvious problems, such as them having just left exposed cable laying across the street connecting to houses together weeks ago, after repeatedly saying "we're putting in a work ticket to get this taken care of". Why am I leaving a review today? I'm bored because, wait for it, tge "service" is out. Again. And rather than get to work from home, I'm getting ready to drive 45 minutes to work st site today. Again. Spectrum SUCKS.
