Qwest Complaint - Terrible Service - Phone/Internet
Qwest has provided the worse service I have ever had with a phone or internet company. We will start with the internet.
Internet: For the past 6 months my internet will constantly go up and down. When I say up and down it will drop the DSL and then recycle and come back up after a minute or less. When you try and resume what you were doing it drops out again and will cycle through this 4 or 5 times in the period of 5 or more minutes. The most times I have counted, 32 times in 1 hour. When I contact Qwest about the problem they tell me there is noise on the line and would I like to have a service call which of course I would have to pay for. The thing is the problem is outside my house since I can connect the modem directly to the service box and it still has the same problem. I had better service when I had dial up.
Phone: This is actually a billing problem. I was behind on my payments due to unemployment and requested a extension for disconnect which they granted. The payment was sent off to Qwest they received it and cashed the check, then cut off my service. When I contacted Qwest it was a weekend so the billing department was closed and I could not be helped. When I finally contacted billing on Monday morning and asked them why my service was cut off I was told they never received payment. When I explained that according to the bank it was received and cashed. The representative acted was like I was a criminal trying to pull one over on them. It took 2 WEEKS to resolve this problem and after it was resolved the next bill I received had no credit for the 2 weeks that they had me shut off, that took another month to resolve.
Overall I would rate Qwest a 2 out of 10. Lost payments, horrible internet service and a 50/50 chance you will get a rude customer service agent.
