"Please read my story. If nothing else, you'll get a chuckle! In May, a
door-to-door salesman came through our neighborhood informing" people that
had begun offering service in our area (which has been exclusively
until now). He quoted a price for first and second year service that was a huge savings from our
bill. I did not sign up with him, but went online to the
website and found an even better deal: $50/month versus about $105 for
(for 50 Mbps Internet and Phone only, no TV). I signed up online and scheduled installation. I also took the necessary steps to have our phone number transferred from
. The installer showed up on time on the installation date. He was punctual, courteous, and professional. I have no complaints about the subcontractor who does installations for
. But after a half hour of fiddling around and failing to get a signal to the cable modem, he realized the problem:
had not yet wired our neighborhood! He created a work order for the "network" people from
to come and do the necessary line work. He told me that I would be contacted by
. The next day I noticed that our phone lines were dead, and then I remembered: our number had been transferred to
. Since then we been relying on our cell phones for all phone communication. People who call us on our landline get our
voicemail. Ironically, we cannot access our
voicemail without first having the phone service. When I had not heard from
for several days, I began calling. It is almost impossible to get through by phone to a human at
. I had better luck with "online chat," but the fellow from Bombay I chatted with could only tell me that the work order had been created. He could not give me any information about the status of the order. A few days later I called technical support and waited 23 minutes for a human operator. The tech support person I spoke with said the the work would be done within 48 hours. I asked if they would call me to let me know when the work was actually completed so I could reschedule installation, and I gave my email address and cell phone number. The 48 hours came and went without a call or email. I believe that it was during the call mentioned above that an issue was registered on my behalf with
's Executive Office. I got an email on
webmail (lucky I checked it) containing an issue number and the telephone number of someone in the Executive Office that I should call. I have been calling this number at various times throughout the day for several days. I only get the voicemail of someone who promises to get back to me but never does. I filled out a complaint form on the website of the Tucson government office that handles consumer complaints about cable companies. I have not heard anything from them, and it has been six days. So the bottom line is that you have a company with an aggressive sales force (and a web site) that offers non-existent services, gets you to sign up, and then leaves you holding the bag.

"I have been a
customer for almost 30 years at the same address. Rather than appreciating my loyal business, they seem to find a way of "upgrading"" my service which seems to take features away and increase my cost. Over the years I have come to see them as a predatory company whose ever increasing profits are a function of their ability to monopolize cable service in an area rather than good customer relations. I wish, and have tried often, to find a better alternative to no avail. My internet goes out intermittently and
tells me I must request in writing to modify my bill for those times I am unable to use it. They now threaten to charge me for service calls and their help lines (telephone) are often staffed by people who don't speak English understandably. They charge a lot to "rent" their modem; they try to make purchasing one difficult - they will sell one at an inflated price for outdated equipment. They advertize the "triple package" but just and try to learn which modem to buy (as opposed to rent one from them at $8.00/month.) to add for internet phone service (if I did respond to their high pressure advertizing, would I
phone service each time my internet goes out which seems to happen every time it rains ?). They upgraded me, without asking or giving me a choice, to digital cable which then gave them the ability to block a free community access channel that I often watched as well other channels (e.g., TCM) that I got before. They told me I would have to enroll in a higher tier of service to get that channel and, despite being a longtime customer that is clearly not going to change providers, I would have to agree to a locked two year contract (if they want me to continue to be a
customer, use good service rather than a binding contract to keep my business.) Anyway, the "upgrade" resulted in less channels and I had to upgrade to a new cable box that costs me money every month. I could go on and on, but in summary, rather than reward faithful and responsible customers (I have never failed to pay a bill on time) they take every opportunity to charge more and give poorer service. No wonder they are ranked second from the bottom in customer satisfaction; the lowest company is Time-
and they are trying to merge with them resulting in the domination of almost every
in the country. The thought of that keeps me up at night. . .

Cable Tv reviews in Tucson


Service was poor, the equipment used, and failed often. Continue to raise charges significantly even though we had a set contract amount. Company continues to report an unpaid balance to credit report, even though I sent them and their collection agency all receipts confirming I had turned in equipment and paid the early withdrawal penalty.
- Steven S.

The installation was rather easy and I didnt have to wait overly long.. They have been providing decent service ever since, but they keep increasing the price it seems. I started that out and about $60/ mo. 2 years ago and now I'm up to $80/month. :(. I don't get more than a few basiic
- Ann M.

It took them two service calls to improve the signal at all and the visits were days apart so doing that time we had no cable. I have not been impressed with this provider for awhile. I would like to change but my husband does not think that there is no one else that is any better.
- Linda T.

The provider was late to arrive, but call to notify us. We were charged a service fee which I think was unfair since the home already had existing wiring. The service took much longer than estimated.
- Kristina C.

The installer arrived on time and worked quickly to complete the installation. Very happy with the service provided and the quality of the installation and service. I would recommend
Tucson Cable Companies Provider Name Locked
, for both the quality of service and the price for these services.

thing??!!WHAT A (continuing) NIGHTMARE....! We seem to be locked into this provider based on where we live, but everytime someone comes to the house, something is either left undone or the person sent doesn't have answers to our questions. After two months we still have questions unanswered and things that do not work properly. Out of all the technicians sent, there was ONE great guy who actually knew what he was doing. Honestly, how much time and energy needs to be devoted to this one thing to get it right??!!
- Diane K.

Very professional service. The satellite was installed on the roof without any problems. The system worked perfectly for me and my family. Service problems with the satellite tv occurred during high wind conditions and during the summer monsoons. This wasn't unexpected and we accepted this possibility.
