Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in McAllen


Fast speeds. Have multiple devices using the wifi with minimum lag. I just need to upgrade my router for better performance.

Time Warner has a fairly decent price and it gets the job done, however the speed isn't too amazing and their customer service could be improved. My cable that provides internet for my home is still above ground in my backyard after the last time they were here. Called for the tech to come put it back in the ground where it used to be, and still nothing. Do not know if it is "fine" to be above ground, but it is unsightly and a constant hazard when it comes to lawn care and my feisty dog.
