"We have had Century Link internet, bundled with our land line, for more than 5 years. We are paying about $35 per month for the internet service according to" our bill. Over the last 2 months, we have experienced constant "drops" in our internet service, with different computers, where the internet simply goes dead. Today, I called in because the service has been dropping all day. After waiting more than 1/2 hour on hold, their computer told me there is nothing wrong with my internet service. I talked to a technical support technician who told me the same thing. What is clear is that Century Link does not have the line and amplifier capacity to service our neighborhood, where the average home is 2500 square feet and each house probably 2 or 3 computers. So tomorrow I am going to start looking for another internet service, where we are not tied into a 1 or 2 year contract which we can't drop if the service is as terrible as Century Link.

"After repeated calls to repair the system we decided to change our service from
to AT&T. We filed for the change on January 13, and were" assured that paperwork had been filed with
for the change of service on January 14th, 2015. We were informed that a change of service might take as much as 10 business days. When AT&T came out to install our new service on 24 January we were told that
was holding our phone numbers hostage until at least February 6th.
has been stalling this entire time in order to have another billing cycle to bill us for. This is terrible business practice from a company that has failed to adequately repair problems with their installation of equipment at our home. All we want is our money back from the extended billing cycle enforced upone us by
and the immediate release of our phone numbers, which is common industry practice.

Everyone I've spoken with here has been polite, and seemingly wanting to help, but... they have not been able to deliver what they are selling yet. After Numerous calls routed to their call center at Cablelynx and having a company tech out 3 times they have not been able to get the internet right and deliver the service I ordered and paid for. Prior to ordering the service I was told by both
Tacoma Internet Service Providers Provider Name Locked
and Cablelynx that what they call their high speed turbo (up to 50 mbps) was available at my address. I spoke with many, many people at both
Tacoma Internet Service Providers Provider Name Locked
City Hospital and Northeastern State University about internet providers in
Tacoma Internet Service Providers Provider Name Locked
prior to deciding what service to install. Despite many unflattering reviews, based on
Tacoma Internet Service Providers Provider Name Locked
/ Cablelynx's advertisements, the services featured on their website, and what they told me over the phone, I ordered their service. I Ordered and paid (by check at time of install) for the most expensive package they have at ($139 per month) for advertised speed up to 50 mbps. I'm Lucky if im getting 2- 3. Many times less than 1. I'm even having trouble with
Tacoma Internet Service Providers Provider Name Locked
email, much less web browsing. Forget about trying to access services like Netflix, it just hangs and hangs on this ISP's service. Numerous calls to their service center. I've recieved several reasons for why I'm having problems like they didn't have my order correct, I had not ordered their fastest service, that I had ordeed their enhanced package, not the turbo, ... That for some unexplained reason my modem had been set at residential speed level, etc... Again, I'm paying over $130/mo just for internet, and getting somewhere between 0.8 and 3 mbps. That's using Speedtest and numerous servers including their own sppedtest.ark.cablelynx.com. Last tech who came out yesterday admittted he was not getting much better from the connection and modem they installed. That's not even up to the advertised speed of their lowest priced ($59/mo) package. At 2 - 3 mbps I'm getting less than 20% of what I am paying for. Blamed it on the bandwidth. Couldn't do anything about it. His solution to the problem was to drop me down to their lowest price package, even though I was not getting anywhere near that speed either, and credit my account. Waiting to see how quickly that cedit happens. I was told they are in the process of upgrading infrastructure and that things should be better in another month or so. I'm assuming I'm dealing with professionals who understand the importance of providing service annd value to their loyal customers. I'm also assuming the people running this businss know they cant advertise something they cant deliver, and collect money from people under these circumstances. Perhaps the Oklahoma Corporation Commission, state utility regulators, and the FCC can explain this better than I can. I would like to be here again, in another month or so, and provide a glowing review of this company and their servce. Presently, I'm sitting tight, along with many friends and interested third party observers, waiting for them to deliver on my now adjusted, credited, slower, lower-tier internet service package, and hopefully, something closer to that 50 mbps they advertise for

The above amount included WIFI services for a year and installation. Just about everyone in our area outside city limits use their service. It is the best we have had in the nine years we have lived here.

tl:dr -
Tacoma Internet Service Providers Provider Name Locked
didn't port our phone number and we've been given multiple deadlines that have been missed. Either
Tacoma Internet Service Providers Provider Name Locked
is giving us the run around or has become completely incompetent.
On Monday January 5th (I believe), I called to switch my phone and internet from Dish to CentruryLink. I was quoted a great price ($45 a month for 20Mbit and unlimited phone).
The person told me that it would be set up the following Wednesday.
Note: I don't think I explicitly asked to "port" our number nor was I asked. I did say I wanted to transfer from Dish which I assumed implied that we wanted to take our number with us.
I called on that day (
Tacoma Internet Service Providers Provider Name Locked
7th) and was told that it would actually take effect the following Monday (
Tacoma Internet Service Providers Provider Name Locked
12th). I wasn't particularly happy with that because it meant that we couldn't cancel Dish until then but
That Monday came and I called Dish to cancel but was told that
Tacoma Internet Service Providers Provider Name Locked
had never requested to take over our number.
Again, I called Century link (still
Tacoma Internet Service Providers Provider Name Locked
12th). Talked to a supervisor and he told me that they would expedite the transfer within 2 days but that it was scheduled to complete on January 21st. This time, I completed the 3rd party verification for number transfer, which the first person I talked to didn't have me do.
I will update as things progress.
Those two days passed with no action and I called back. The person I talked to seemed to have never heard of expediting a number transfer and told me to wait for January 21st.
It is not January 22nd and the transfer hasn't happened. However, yesterday (the 21st), our internet stopped working and we don't know who to call because we have two companies supposedly providing internet access.

I just received my January 2015 bill. I have landline and

.

raised the cost of the modem
150%. According to the representative, if you have
Tacoma Internet Service Providers Provider Name Locked
you have to use their modem. I live in Kentucky, so I called the public service commission to

a complaint, only to be told that, per the Kentucky legislature, the commission is only allowed to handle complaints related to landlines. The commission was never given authority to handle complaints about internet service, so providers can raise rates anytime and any amount in Kentucky.

We were having unreliable connection with TWC. Couldn't
Tacoma Internet Service Providers Provider Name Locked
the DNS a lot of time, slow connection speed (even though) we paid for there "Ultimate". My setup in the house is top notch and I can guarantee I had connectivity to TWC systems. After a month "talking" (there has to be intelligence on the other side of line for a conversation" ) and them complaining that it was my perfectly working hardware was at fault. The "discovered that the 3 repeater in my area were all "BAD". It took on tech who had a clue less than a day to fix the issue. Guess what my so-called bad hardware in my house now work fine when there is connectivity to TWC system. I guess you can't get mad at the dog for cleaning his butt in the living room and you shouldn't expect much more out of TWC.

Excellent provider so far. When there was an issue with the connection, I was able to talk to a customer service agent who was able to walk me through the problem.
