Frontier Communications - Phone and Internet Service Are Inconsistent
DURHAM, NORTH CAROLINA -- I have had Frontier phone and Internet service since May 2012. When the service works, it is fine but at least four or five hours a month, the Internet goes down unexpectedly or moves at a snail's pace. The phone is consistently down or my telephone calls are so static filled, it is often impossible to hear the person calling on the other end. This problem usually clears up in an hour or two but what if I have an emergency? Must I wait an hour before I can call an ambulance or can call the police?
During the summer, I was without phone and Internet service for more than a week. The first tech showed up on day five (after my initial complaint) to say that he did not have a bucket truck. He then scratched his head and left. Nearly four days after the first appointment repair date, another technician arrived without a bucket truck which I asked customer service to provide. Thankfully, he climbed a ladder and resolved the problem.
When my bill was incorrectly charged I spoke to a wonderful customer service agent who gave me credit for the improperly charged amount--or so I thought. I paid my bill sans the credited amount and guess what, three weeks later my service was disconnected because the amount I thought was credited was not approved. We are talking about nearly $170.00--not pocket change.
If you have another option instead of Frontier, consider that option first.
