  • Location: Redford,Wayne,MI
  • Cost: $45 per month (month by month)
  • Install: about 1 days
Good "They installed drop from pole to house and hook up on Sunday AM"
Bad "used 120 minutes of phone time and one botched order to get service"
Overall "ordered 2Mbps service and I got advertised speed wicked awesome"

First order they hooked me up to their bot phone system after talking to a person bot refused to understand my responses I thought I got the order thru for install the next day but when the time went by I called they said they had no record of me:( after using 120 minutes of cell phone time Saturday they set me up for Sunday lucky service man was only 4 minutes late for that window of time.
The install went smooth.
I gots a Arris TM502G modem rented for $2/month
I got the service protection plan $3/month
2Mbps speed for $42/month
and a total balance of $98 for the install and internet listed above
The balance was due 1/25/13 but I paid it the next day after install
I don't know for sure it the bandwidth is capped
And they do give me the true advertised, speed that never happened with any of my other ISP's

9/1/14 yea still getting what I paid for, only 3 outages on the weekends in the last few months this year. BTW I did the speed tests here on dslreports

Try a true speed test

Try speedtest.net, not the WOW! speed test. Their's only tests between their servers and your modem. Try a real world speed test on servers around the country and prepare to be disappointed.
