"On the phone and during what was supposed to be free installation which it was not. They told me I could record from every room in the house and when I couldn't" they then told me I'm sorry you can only record from one box but I could watch from all them. They then basically told me to live with it or go with amother company I think they are too big for there britches

-Raynie H.

"They're alright. They're just expensive. I pay a lot. They are so expensive. My internet service is very slow. I don't have a choice. Where I am," there are a lot of trees so the service is that crazy.

Cable Tv reviews in Springfield


It’s a basic cable TV, I have no HBO, I have nothing. They are not very responsive for senior citizens. You have to stay on line a long time but they take care of stuff. We have seasonal subscription and they renege on any discounts they offered before originally; which the other provider we use down south doesn’t do. That’s not fair. I would get rid off them but I can’t. Their service is fine, it’s just that they are expensive.
- lynda T.

well we renewed our contract because our handicapped son uses netflix a lot cause he cannot go to theaters to see moves. they did not have a data cap since we signed up and now data cap started sept 1 2015. that's why we left

net. 450 gb per month for 6 users in our house. they said a price lock and no data cap, but they breech contract by raising price to $200.00 a month+extra for data usage. what is my son suppose to do be bored all day. tv and phone service bad s well. internet is a joke. we messaged them on www.faceboom.com saying
broke camel's back with data cap and we're furious about it.
1 thing more imctv is the only company where we live besides direct tv and dish network they have data caps. we wont use them.
- Matthew B.

I don't particularly like them. They are fine and do what they are supposed to do, but I think they charge an outrageous amount of money. They charge $15 for each set-top box and $20 for the DVR every month. I think that is kind of outrageous. We have a bundle with our cell phones, internet, house phone and television and it is about $300 monthly.
- Barbara H.

I give them a C overall mostly because you have to be very proactive or else the monthly rates would be sky high. Every 6 months I call to try to get a better deal. The last time I called I got my bill down from $289 monthly to $209 monthly. With

they have a customer resolution department at their corporate office. That's where you can get things done. It is very difficult to do if I you call the 800 number. My monthly charge is for everything, a full package

They don't show much appreciation for long term customers by continuing discounts on extended service plans.
- Felicia H.

They are very professional. They are respectful. They have great customer service. I think the people that help you when you call in are wonderful; I think they try hard. The three years I’ve been with them, twice when I’ve had to get new cable boxes, you

everything you have programmed in on there. One time they were supposed to be there in the morning, they didn't get there till 5 PM and they were here till 10 PM.

After several phone calls attempting to get a firm price for this service and what the service would cover I finally found 2 reps that actually agreed on both service and cost. At that point i made an appt. to get the service installed. Since they wont tell you when they are coming by you have to stay home from work,

money and hope they show up when you arent out running errands. Im also gated so they cant get in without contact which they failed to do. Fortunately i happened to be out in the driveway when i noticed their truck come by or it might not have happened at all. I was please to find out their modem now contained wireless so i didnt have to use a router which they failed to inform me of so i had to go back and return the wireless router i bought because the didnt give me the information i needed at the time. The installer insisted he couldnt do it without accessing my back yard with dogs. I insisted he could and guess what...he didnt need to go in my back yard. Then he tried to tell me the thing wouldnt work because i wouldnt let him in my back yard. I told him i had confidence in him he could make it work. Guess what....he did. Then he copped attitude and left. I asked him if it was not part of his job to check to see if it was actually working on the computer. He said that was not his job he just installed the box he didnt check to see if it was working. He refused to hardwire the box to the computer and told me i would have to hire an electrician or handyman to do that. It wasnt his job. I guess TWC is all wi fi now.

another thing they forgot to tell me. So after many instruction and frustration after he left i finally got it hooked up to wi fi but then when i went to check the modem it was so hot i couldnt touch it. So i called them back and said hey this is going to catch fire and burn my house down. They didnt seem to care and said they could send someone out in 2 weeks to look at it. Seriously when i touched the wire it was so hot it seared my fingers and created callous like if you touched a hot

. I was afraid to use the modem because of safety. I just had a charger get hot and burn a hole in my floor I didnt want another near 911 experience. I called back and talked to a very nice lady. She even said a supervisor would come this time. She said of course the installer was supposed to check to see if it was working and no the modem wasnt supposed to get that hot The day came when they were supposed to send another person out.. I took another day off work. Turns out she never put in the work order and no one ever showed up. I got blown off again....tiresome. Another day of losing money for no service. This free installation has now cost me nearly $300 in lost wages. So I called back again and was told no one was coming and i should just bring the hot modem into the store to exchange it. Why didnt they tell me that 2 weeks ago. So TWC gives you a month trial which is almost up but i havent had opportunity to try it because the modem wasnt safe and they wont extend the trial time nor will they financially compensate me for the lost time due to their very hot unsafe modem. They now have a monopoly in fast internet with no limit on data. I run a business and the other person here is disabled and watches netflix all day so we need fast and unlimited data. I was very happy with Clear who is going out of business. TWC needs some responsible accountable competition.

I like them just fine. I have it through

because it is fiber optic. Their service is way too much. Their web site is in impossible to navigate. One division of AT&T does not talk to another. It is impossible to resolve billing issues in one phone call. Whenever if I do contact AT&T it is a four hour marathon to try to get any kind of answer. The workmanship when they do come out here is kind of hit and miss. Some of the equipment is good, some of it not. When it works it is fantastic. The best service AT&T provides is the TV signal part of it. I am getting good strength with the internet package I have which is the highest package they offer. Data plans are particularly iffy. I have grandfathered in a limited data plan with AT&T and I would love to take a few things off my package, but if I do then I would
Springfield Cable Companies Provider Name Locked
my unlimited data and I sure don't want to do that. So I am kind of stuck. With your bundled package with AT&T you are kind of stuck for the duration. When somebody does come out for a service call they are professional and everything goes swimmingly. When you have to run wire then you run into problems because they certainly don't hide wire at all. You are lucky if it is not laying on your lawn. The next time you mow your lawn you are liable to chop up the wire.
