I am a newly subscribed internet provider with a stand broadband Waco Texas. The internet is very slow and unreliable speed keeps dropping, unable to scream unable to play your PlayStation games unable to watch Netflix All it does is buffs. I have called numerous time to take support only thing they want to do is restart my modem and send a signal back to my home. I was with spectrum before and it was the same thing seem like we're paying for service will not getting very poor service.

Our experience with Spectrum was an absolute nightmare! We tried to transfer services from Colorado to Texas. The techs came to our house FIVE times and could NOT figure out how to install Wi-Fi or TV. Customer service had extremely bad communication with the techs and vice versa. Two weeks later they are trying to get me to change my cell service that I did not ask for. I never want to hear about this company again! Horrible communication and total lack of communication and service
