I am so glad that I made a trip into the Hotwire communications store in downtown Salisbury. I met two lovely ladies - Laurie and Kristi. Kristi Bradley took care of me and I was thrilled with her friendliness, her efficiency (in no time flat she showed me the different bundles and rates) and her true concern for my purchase. She was super all-around and I told her that I had to let her boss know! Thank you Kristi for taking the time to treat me with such courteousness and respect in the middle of your hectic day.

OUTSTANDING!! I would like to tell the WORLD what an AMAZING job Hotwire Communications has done in transitioning my Community, South River, in Martin Cty from Xfinity to Hotwire. From day one, every detail was explained and supported in every area. My Technician, Joe Ortiz, and his entire Team were efficient, professional and extremely friendly and they worked together like a "fine-tuned" machine. All the Supervisors (James Tuccio) and "On-Site" Representative, Shadrina Concepcion, were very knowledgeable and patiently answered all my questions. Thanks to ALL of these exceptional individuals, this was the GREATEST "Communications Customer Service Experience" I've ever had!! I LOVE my HOTWIRE!!! 👍😎❤

We are extremely pleased with the service and support that we get from Hotwire. Appointments are easy to get and the technicians are skilled, polite, respectful and efficient. If the tech is running late, we always get a phone call. Tech support on the phone is also helpful and a pleasure to deal with. I cannot recommend Hotwire any higher.....

I was so frustrated dealing with the Raleigh salespeople and decided to visit my local branch. Laurie was so helpful, patient, and encouraging. She knows her work and did an excellent job in assisting me. I recommend to anyone to pay your bill, get technical support, etc. locally. It was much less stressful for me.

I gave 5 stars because I believe the tech in Boca Woods Country Club needed some recognition. Miguel is incredible, knowledgeable and understanding. He was the only one we would recommend and now I just heard he got a promotion. Even though I’m sad he won’t be coming to fix any of my crazy issues I am pleased that he did get the recognition he so deserved. Please make sure he knows this. Thank you for putting up with my puppies.

Update!!! Hotwire has really stepped up the game.The service is great .... when it works. We lost service for a day last week but they identified as a community service issue and it was fixed that day.We lost service again yesterday morning together with neighbors and several other people in our community, but Hotwire told me they won’t have a technician until Thursday. I told them to please try to send someone sooner- I am working from home and depend on the internet, but all I got was “they will try”. Some of my neighbors were lucky and were promised an appointment for today. Hotwire won’t acknowledge that this is an issue within the community despite the fact that multiple neighbors lost service at the same time and my request to please talk to a supervisor wasn’t granted either.

I met Hotwire Comms when I moved to the US. I was a residential customer and the service was excellent. At this time I lived in Promenade Doral and I couldn't believe the latency and speed I had in 2014/2015 to browse and play online games. Today I have the pleasure of belonging to this family as part of their work team. Very happy to visit the Technology Center and expand the future with them.

I wanted to take a moment to let people know what great service Hot Wire provided. I was relocating my TV to a different wall and was told by my handyman to get Category Five cable. I was headed to Home Depot when I noticed the Hot Wire Truck heading to an account. The technician kindly got out of his truck and offered me some cable and gave me his card in case my handyman ran into trouble. Sure enough he had trouble with the project. No problem. Why? I called the gentleman’s name on the card, Jean and he came within minutes. Not only did he walk my handyman through the process he made sure all my equipment was hooked up correctly. Thank you Jean. I would have given 10 stars for the Hot Wire service if I could have. This was an example of a person and a company going over & above. Thank you!

I have to say, I have rarely if ever been impressed by the above and beyond help that customer service can give (mostly because I feel nowadays people don't put any emphasis on friendliness at all). But oh my word, I want to take a minute to rave about Kristi here at Hotwire in Salisbury. She is hands down the kindest, most helpful and sweet woman I've ever dealt with in a company! She was friendly, made me feel totally comfortable with her immediately, went way above and beyond to help with our issues, just one of the nicest and warmest people I've had the pleasure to meet. Hey Hotwire! This woman deserves a raise and stuff! She's amazing 🙂 She truly made me feel like our issues mattered and would be fixed asap, and through all her hard work and talking with their techs out and about, she was able to have our issue resolved same day and I cannot thank her enough (and the lady from the front of the store was so kind too but I sadly can't remember the name but thank you to you too!!). Thank you thank you thank you so much to you Kristi, I'm thankful that we had the issues pop up, cause I was able to meet such a wonderful person and truly cheered up my day 🙂 The issue being fixed was just gravy!TLDR: If you're in Salisbury don't use the 800 number to get ahold of Hotwire Communications, go to the main street store or look up their local phone number online and get ahold of them that way, and I highly recommend dealing with Kristi cause she knows everything about her job so well, and makes you feel like your problem matters and you matter. She's awesome and their internet services are awesome too! I'm sure there are plenty of great people there, but I wanted to sing the praises as it were, cause they are deserved. Many thanks!!

I wanted to take a moment and write a review on how outstanding this company and service has been. I’ve had Hotwire for about three years in total and I really have enjoyed the service more so than Comcast. Karen S. was the rep that helped me in my Southwest Florida community.. I had a billing issue at the very beginning and she was outstanding in making sure everything was corrected as well as making sure that the account was always accurate. I would give her a five star rating as she should be a role model of other employees to try to model their customer service experience like. Thank you for a great company in Fision Hotwire

Bravo to the account manager for my community near Sanibel, FL, for the manner in which she handled an issue affecting all 194 subscribers. Customer service was of no help to me, and I finally got to this wonderful lady by doing some digging on my own. Not only did she "bird dog" the issue, but also she stayed on top of it, and kept me informed of the progress. Cable companies, in general, do not have very good ratings, however, I have had many companies in the last few decades, and Hotwire stands significantly above the rest of the pack. I only wish they could have more employees like the one who helped me out!

Shonda was courteous patient knowledgeable and listened to everything I had to say About my experiences so far.She explained the services that were included also helped me to get connected to the basic cable available in the community. She was also able to straighten out a billing issue while we were on the phone.After a rocky start I found Shonda to be a breath of fresh air who helped me with every issue I was concerned with and created a new satisfied customer.ThanksJohn F

TL;DR: Internet is fast, reliable and customer service is great. I have had one night of no internet in 4 years and they bent over backwards to get me back up ASAP.I have been a Salisbury Fiber customer since the Fibrant days and I had begun to see issues where my internet was going out for between 60-180 seconds every day. I spoke with Hotwire Support and they let me know that my issue was the older Fibrant equipment on the side of my house. The very next day they had a technician out to replace the equipment on the side of the house but there were still some issues on my line that had to be ironed out. First thing the next morning, the tech was back and got it all squared away and perfect within 20 minutes. Throughout my entire time talking to Hotwire, the account manager Chris and the technician Mike where in constant communication about what was going on and offering alternative solutions to help mediate the the spotty internet that I had for that night. They both went above and beyond to make sure that I was taken care of. Some folks may only leave 5 star review for perfect service and never let companies who have issues make up for them, but I sincerely appreciate, and would much rather pay my money to, a company that works to fix their issues and make sure the customer is happy. Id wholeheartedly and unabashedly recommend Hotwire Fision to anyone and I am looking forward to continued great service from them.Also, since some companies love to advertise speeds that I never manage to get, I wanted to include screenshots of multiple speed tests I did. I pay for 300Mbps up and 300Mbps down and Id say that I am actually getting those as real world speeds.

HOTWIRE SALISBURY NC:I was looking for an internet service for my mom. We needed to put security cameras in her home for mainly health concerns. She had began falling alot but refused to leave her home to live with any of us. Shes holding on to her independence. We wanted to make sure she was ok, everyday. We live in different cities , but we wanted to see that she was alright. Most of the internet services in Salisbury North Carolina are very expensive. But not Hotwire, comparably speaking. I spoke with Laura Searcy at 114 Main St, Salisbury, NC 28144 and she was so pleasant. She was very knowledgeable of their products, services, as well as the promotions being offered. The service goes in Oct 9, 2020 and I can't wait to bring my mom out of the stone ages with Facebook, streaming, computers and the like. Thank you Hotwire of Salisbury and Laura Searcy for helping me to make my moms life happier and helping to give us peace of mind.

They are quick to address any and every need of their customers in a timely manner. The speed of the internet they are providing out ways any other service provider in the area. It is not just the everyday customer service representatives. The whole staff of Hotwire is working to provide a better experience for the community for Salisbury. I look forward to the days to come with Hotwire. Keep up the Great work!!!

Hotwire is our choice for high speed internet. It is the only source for true symmetrical high speed fiber. That is important to my company because we do not just download we send content all over the country to clients. And to send big, big video, photo and graphic files you need high speed fiber.

Switching to Hotwire has been great for my small business. They provide fast and reliable internet speeds. My employees and I have not experienced any connectivity issues since switching to them as our service provider. The customer service team has been professional and friendly during my interactions with them. That being said, I’ve barely talked with them since the service has been so exceptional. Hotwire is an excellent addition to our community and I would highly recommend their services to anyone in the area looking for fast and affordable internet.

I am a big fan of Hotwire. I am just not sure why you would consider any other provider if you live in Salisbury, NC. I have Hotwire Internet and every time I do a speed test I am getting the bandwidth that I pay for. I have never had an outage. No other provider in Salisbury has the bandwidth available to its customers that Hotwire does. I have 1 Gbps service from Hotwire. The best that AT&T can do is 10 Mbps and that is over DSL which is delivered via copper wires that have been around for who knows how long. Spectrum can do "up to" 1 Gbps, but every time I ran a speed test with them before switching, I never got the bandwidth that I was paying for. Plus with Hotwire, I don't have to rent a modem. If you are a cord cutter or someone that just values blazing fast Internet that is reliable, Hotwire needs to be your provider. I attached a screen shot of my speed test. As you can see, I am getting 917 Mbps download speed. With overhead and processing delay on the interfaces, this speed is spot on for 1 Gbps.

With hurricane Irma threatening Florida we evacuated from the Keys to our home on the West Coast of the state. Unfortunately a renter of our home disconnected our Hotwire account accidentally. One hour later a service lady got us re-connected. I can only thank Hotwire for the great training and help we received. Her name is Shakeya Jones and I appreciated her assistance greatly.

In Bonita Springs, SWFL, they installed a complete community with a new fiber optic system. The install team for neighborhood cable was efficient and unobtrusive.The home install team did a complete job inhome neatly and rapidly, maybe 2/3 of a day.The basic internet at 100Mbps has never needed buffering for Amazon 4K movies, Netflix or VUDU.After two months, I haven't needed to call for any reason.Bravo to Hotwire. Splendid performance. Came from Comcast.

The ONLY reason that Hotwire is getting a high review and if i am honest, keeping my business is due to two people at the office in Salisbury. Their names are Shenoah and Lori (sp). Hotwire has been double charging our account every month and letting one sit in our account pending for a week. I have yet to get a supervisor on the phone. The customer service supervisors have been "unavailable" everytime i have called and will not call me back. Terrible way to run a business and handle your customers. Shenoah and Lori in Salisbury are their saving graces. My problem was handled quickly with them.Thank you to them both. No thanks to the supervisors of the customer line.

Very unstable internet connection. Called multiple times and get told “a tech is being sent out”. This issue is not being taken seriously.Building is 1818 Park in HollywoodWe don’t have a choice of internet provider. Many residents work from home and this is a very frustrating issue to have.It’s 2022. Internet should not be dropping out like this. It actually just dropped right NOW as I am writing this. I had to switch to mobile data to even post this review!I would like to know what I am paying for! Bc I am not getting the service I need.Update: We finally got ahold of Nicklas, who was unaware of the problem until later that evening. Even after multiple people calling, multiple times, the account manager had zero idea we were having an issue. The first level Hotwire support is not relaying the messages to the higher ups. The solution is always to "send a tech out". That is fine if there is a unit issues. But when multiple residents are having issues (which I stated to each support person), it is more than likely a building issue. Sending a tech out to the unit will not only waste Hotwire's time and money, but my time also.I would like to give Nicklas credit for being quick to solve the issue and his level of communication with my neighbor who got ahold of him.We need a more direct line of communication for severe issues.

Internet goes out every 30 minutes or so and for only a few minutes. It has gone out 13 times over the past 6 hours (ping testing). Neighbors confirm same too. Support takes too long to pick up and then says “we don’t see an issue”… of course you don’t, but then we’ll sit on the phone and it will happen again and only then they’ll try to solve it. Also, it took a week for them to finally respond to a building wide issue and guess what, ITS HAPPENING AGAIN a month later. Same bull that I have to deal with when calling support, no call backs from supervisors, no one working on the weekend to come figure out what’s wrong. Our apartment is forcing us into a contract with them otherwise I would never ever be their customer.Update: Finally got a supervisor and then the account manager for my building as a whole involved and they sorted it out Sunday night. I'm happy again, but they definitely have a major flaw with what the phone support people can see and that needs to be solved by their customer support management team.

I usually don’t take to time to write reviews or comment on my experiences with specific companies. Today, I felt compelled to tell my story. I am new to a community just northwest of Atlanta. Most of the major communication companies do not service or partially services my address. Anyway, I established internet services with Hotwire (no problem there!). It was a smooth installation. The problem began when I decided to add home phone service. As of today, I have been waiting for 7 days to have my phone activated. The technician appointment was rather timely but then all the trouble started. Each phone number they wanted to assign was invalid (2 numbers). Then, the 3rd was assigned but I was told the Voice/Tech department had to activate my line remotely and give me my phone number. I was also advised that it could take 24 hours. Then, told to wait about 2-3 hours….but, wait! Again, I was told to wait 24 hours. I have talked to 5 different reps on 4 different days trying to get my phone activated. I will say that all of the reps I spoke to were very nice and did their best to alert, send emails, and get my issue resolved. Unfortunately, the results are the same. I was informed that the company recently migrated to a new system and was having come issues and backlogged. Uh, I think they should have told me the first day I inquired about the service. At least I would have known what to expect-a delay. At this point, I have lost all confidence in Hotwire to activate my phone service. Hotwire has lost credibility. In addition, they appear incompetent. I have wasted hours calling, being placed on hold, and waiting for a rep to answer the phone to end up in the same place as I started-no phone service. There is definitely a disconnect in their process. It’s very disappointing. At this point, I’m choosing to cancel my order and seek phone service somewhere else. I have wasted enough of my time. Good job Hotwire!6/4/2020-***UPDATE***This is an update to my previous post regarding my experience with Hotwire Communications. After my post and cancelling my request for phone service, the accounts manager, Korry Robinson called me to discuss what transpired. He apologized and explained why the process did not go as smoothly as expected. To avoid any more delays that he advised that he would be handling the situation if I still desired to obtain phone service. He made some calls and reach out to the appropriate teams to expedite the phone activation. He was prompt in his follow-up and informing me of where the team was in the process. To ensure that all bases were covered, he dispatched a technician to check the phone line in my home. I am happy to say that I have a working phone now. I know things happen but this is the type of customer service that is worth mentioning. Korry, thank you for going the extra mile and keeping the communication lines open to get this issue resolved. For now, I have added another star to the rating.

On 1/22/19 I called Hotwire Communications to schedule internet hookup at my new apartment. During that call it got disconnected with no attempt made by the representative to call me back. I called a second time and got my hookup scheduled for 2/4/19. My move in date was 1/26/19. I would’ve liked to have had it sooner but was told that was the earliest option. The scheduled time was 1-3pm on the 4th. I left work so I could accommodate the service technician. They never came. I called and was told the installation was actually scheduled for March 6th. The phone representative was apologetic and called to get more information. This call also accidentally disconnected. I called again to confirm the same. The second representative got me in touch with the first who let me know the service technician’s supervisor wasn’t available and that I could not speak with his supervisor. The next available installation date was 2/13/19. I explained this was unacceptable to place me back in rotation after this error occurred. She said she’d pass the message along to the technician’s supervisor.Here’s the problem with Hotwire Communications. They have a contract with my building and get paid out of my monies whether or not I choose to do business with them. As a result, they have exactly ZERO motivation or concern to serve their clients at this building or any other in which this arrangement exists. I would gladly pay more to a competitor if I wasn’t forced to pay them through my rental agreement. I plan to take my personal time to end this agreement with my building as quickly as possible. The other reviews here speak volumes. I have nothing against the people of Hotwire Communications. The problem lies in their business structure and organization, as well as the legal contracts in place that allow them to neglect clients while being paid anyway. Imagine if you could get paid for your job but not have to do it. Would you ever go to work? What do you think is human nature suggests?02/07/2019 Update: I was able to obtain a call from a supervisor that evening who was very apologetic for how I had been treated. It sounded sincere and they diverted a technician to my place the next morning who installed my services. The fact that an effort was made to right the wrong made a lot of difference. It should have been done the right time, but I feel it is justified to increase my rating from one star to three.

Our homeowner's association switch to Hotwire. I'm sure they did it thinking we would be getting more for our money, but there are a few things they probably didn't know that people should know before switching. First, we lose service at least once a week. This sometimes can be fixed by re-booting the system. Sometimes it takes hours for the service to come on again. It is annoying when it happens during a special event or sports event.The options we have On Demand are not as good as we had with Comcast. Hotwire's On Demand doesn't have CBS. We can't find many of the shows we had on Comcast. We have supplemented our Hotwire service with Netflex and Hulu to get shows not available through Hotwire's On Demand. This takes away from the savings we are getting from the switch.The wireless internet router they supply is weak. We don't get WiFi throughout our home. (Only 1500 sq.ft.) and don't' get WiFi at all out on the lanai or garage.Ask the questions and weigh what is important to you before making the choice to switch.

Zero customer service! HOA switched over to hotwire when our xfinity contract ended. Rented an extra eero box. First bill, they billed me the wrong amount (overcharged by 34%). Over two months in, still unable to get the billing fixed or get a credit. Made multiple attempts to resolve via phone, web submission, chat sessions, more phone calls. Launch manager says I need to be patient.Now they have updated the rate sheet to the higher amount that I am being charged so I doubt this will ever be fixed. I cancelled the eero box rental and I am taking it up with the HOA board.Internet and TV work fine, but good luck getting any customer service.

Wife and I were less than impressed with Hotwire internet and so we decided to try another service. My complaint is that when we cancelled Hotwire, we had just a few days earlier paid for the next month of service, and still had a few days of prepaid service due to us in the then-current month. Four months and two very trying phone calls later, we are still awaiting a refund for the service we paid for but did not get.

Hotwire is the worst company to have internet with, slow on weekends and goes sometime down for no reason. After calling them, and resetting the router, did cannot fix the situation but after few hours your internet comes back just like nothing happened. This happened to me so many times. I spoke to crystal Health which is the concierge for Bella vista apartments, she did not let me place a word, and was so defensive. Choices were not an option, nor discussion. An aggressive tone was there at all time during our discussion. I hope this will change soon, and Bella vista apartments break the contract with Hotwire.

We have been in our new home for quite some time now and we still have our internet wire laying across our lawn.

Hotwire is horrific. They destroyed my living room wall with six different boxes attached to the wall, approximately 18 wires extending from those boxes. It’s unbelievable the destruction that was performed in my home. I used to have two wires hidden behind walls and just popped out to be plugged in. Hotwire completely destroyed the tidy clean appearance I had in my living room.I was told by the techs, ‘we don’t make things pretty so hire someone to do that for you’ and suggested I buy a piece of furniture to cover the three By three foot area of my wall now covered with unsightly boxes.The best part is I was removing the wire from xfinity…that’s been in place for twenty years and I shut down one of my TV’s so apparently Hotwire hooked into existing cable wire from xfinity. It’s just one nightmare after another with this company. Don’t ever use this company!! I’m so disappointed my HOA chose them to replace xfinity. I’m just disgusted

This company is the WORST!

Worst and most unreliable internet service I have ever experienced. If you work remotely and are thinking about living in a community with Hotwire for you internet services, be aware of many outages. I moved in my neighborhood in December of 2021. I thought that having internet and cable as a part of my HOA fees would be great! I was very wrong. we have had many outages that have lasted a minimum of 12 hours to a maximum of 2 days. It is impossible to work from home knowing your internet WILL go down at any given time. BEWARE!

It cuts in and out multiple times a day for the last 2 months. I wouldn’t get this awful internet if it was the last internet company in the world unfortunately I’m forced to use it because the apartment complex signed a cheap deal with them, xfinity would never do this please just pay the extra for a better internet if you work from home and need internet to work.

Been waiting for 2 months and have been told a supervisor will be calling me back every time I call (once a week). Get your act together Hotwire your worse than COMCAST!!!!!

WORST company and billing/customer service people I have ever had to deal with. They’ve taken months to resolve an issue…like literally over two months and counting. Every time I call I have to re-explain the whole issue to a new person, they tell me it will take a week to review everything, I never hear back and have to call again. Now they cut off my internet service. If there were any other internet providers servicing my area, I would change providers with no hesitation.Update: This issue is now going on SEVEN MONTHS. They shut my wifi off every single month, I call, they say they’re still reviewing my information. Now I was just told after calling for the 7th month that the information I sent was apparently unacceptable. Worst run company ever.

I am forced to use Hotwire in my condo association. I scheduled for an install three weeks in advance. Install was supposed to be 8 to 10 AM. At 10:30 I called and was put on hold for 30 minutes. After five calls and 2 1/2 hours on hold at 3:30 in the afternoon I was told somehow I was not put on the schedule even though I got emails and text confirming. They finally sent someone out the next day again later than scheduled finally got install done. Fast forward two weeks my entire system went down can’t access TV called in after three resets can’t figure out what the problem is-and they need to send a technician out 2 days from now. I would pay them not to have the service. It is awful. Two cans and a string would be better.! Two different TVs and two different issues.

Customer service is terrible! We’ve been trying to set up an appointment for almost a month. I’ve called and called and when someone does call me back it’s only to say they’re going to call me back. We waited for over three hours on Monday and no one showed up. After I called our Rep who has only answered his phone once ( and not on this day), ironically we received a phone call from a lady in Ft. Lauderdale who told us our Tech called in sick. She said she would see what she could to to move us up on the schedule and would call me back. Two days later I called our Rep again and left a voicemail. When he called back the next day he said he would call me back after I expressed my frustration, but that has yet to happen. Today (5 days later), I received another call from a lady in Fort Lauderdale who explained that the appointment we have next Wednesday ( which we were never told about) had to be cancelled because the Technician decided to go on vacation and she had to reschedule us for next Friday! Once again I explained we’ve been put on the back burner for a month. She said she would escalate our installation and would call me back! Didn’t happen again. This is the service our condo association is contracted with and we are new customers. After reading all of the negative reviews about Hotwire, we will be talking to our Board about changing service.

They do a very poor job of communicating with customers. We had an appointment set for installationon 3/6/21 and the tech didn't show up in the 2 bour window. I called customer service and was told my appointment was. rescheduled 3 days later without notifying me. When I asked why the agent could not tell me until I pressed her for a. answer and she admitted they are short staffed with field service techs. If my Condo Association didnt have an exclusive contract I would take my business elsewhere. I would Never reccomend this company because they don't keep their word.

I saw the Hotwire utility van pull in my driveway and leave 5 minutes after arriving they NEVER MADE CONTACT OR STEPPED OUTSIDE THE VAN?!! No call no email no text of any issue,giving them the benefit of doubt i wait until 10:30 for them to them me there was an issue with my breaker? They will contact to RS once they fix the problem?And we all know how those call backs go. Lesson Learned back to spectrum i go 🙁 and i was really excited to try them out.

I’ve been calling since MONDAY, trying to get internet service. I was transferred several times, didn’t report the representative that transferred me after I asked for his name because of the way he was talking to me. I spoke with someone Tuesday and she told me I have to wait 72 hours for a response. My landlord told me I have to send over a copy of my lease agreement. I did that, and proceeded to call the next day to speak with someone in regards to that. They told me because of my area code they would have to get a representative to call me back in the area I’m in, and I should receive a call pretty quickly. Well it’s Friday, I still don’t have internet or an appointment, or call back. And I’ve been calling for the past hour and a half. Of course no answer. When someone calls back, make sure it’s a manager!

This is not a consumer friendly company. We are having a periodic problem with one of the tv boxes in our home and Hotwire will not replace the box to that tv set until a technician comes out and states that it is the box that is the problem. So now we have to wait until the tv box fails again (which it did 6 days ago and 2 days ago as well as today) and then we will not have any tv service until one of their technicians can be scheduled to look at the box.. This problem has been going on for several months. Seems like Hotwire is competing with our prior carrier, Comcast, for the least consumer friendly company!

There are many providers for TV and internet service; however, the technicians do not know or understand how to program a remote when you have a Smart TV. I would not recommend this company to anyone. Customer service is lacking, pick up from their store, your remote control, and no follow-up after techs have been to your home, to finish the remote instructions. I'm still using 2 remotes after 2 months.

This was the only Wi-Fi allowed through my apartment complex. Didn’t need cable, but they said cable was free included with the Wi-Fi that was $100 a month. Not only have they been charging me the last 4 months after I moved out and disconnected service, I found out Wi-Fi was very cheap and they were charging me for cable, HBO, and DVR boxes I never asked for. If you’re stuck in an apartment building forcing you to go through Hotwire, run. And run fast.

You have to physically walk in to main store to have service restored. that is not a typo.Otherwise look at one or two days before someone responds to your request. Do not listen to customer service, call technical support. They will tell you go in to main office reconnect service.This is from a tech provider ... = /

I'm supposed to have 200 mbps internet connection but it barely reaches to 40 mbps, if we are lucky enough to have a connection.Hotwire recommended me to upgrade my modem, router and computer. After all extra expenses I still have no reliable internet service.My son takes online classes and exams. Right in the middle of his online exam the connection goes off and he has no chance for a second attempt.I really wanted to support it since it was local and ran by the city but after being sold to a private company, there is no reason to keep it.

Legitimately the worst tv and internet. It goes out weekly. WEEKLY! Our entire neighborhood is stuck under contract for another 5 years because of the developers, so we have no choice but to just deal with it. Our FB page is literally flooded each time (read: each week) with confirmation numbers of reports to Hotwire because if you call, they say there’s “no outage” or “no reports of issues” when there are at least 49 of 111 homes who have already called...at least right now while I’m sitting on hold. Sometimes when it goes out, they will say that it’s raining “somewhere”...like as in somewhere in the US. Yes, it is likely raining somewhere in the US, but it’s a beautiful day here and our services aren’t working. Avoid this company at ALL costs. DO NOT BUILD in a community that only offers them as an option. You will regret it for at least 7 years and if, like us, your contract renews every year for another 7 years, you will basically have to work from Starbucks to get anything done.

I currently have Hotwire Communications as a part of my apartment complex lease. It is the worst and slowest internet that I have ever had (I do not game, stream movies, download large files, or other activities that may impact the speed of the internet. Essentially, I pay $70 per month for little internet and very poor cable options. In addition, the customer service from Hotwire is deplorable. If you enjoy spending hours on hold trying to get one question resolved, while paying too much for very poor service than I suggest you look at Hotwire for home internet and cable.

After setting up my internet, I asked when my first bill would be due, they simply said “It’ll be sent to you”. Well, it wasn’t so then 2 payment dates passed. Without any sort of paper bill or email notification. Contacted their customer service and apparently the individual who set up my account “didn’t have my email address“ (eye roll). I made the payments and set up auto pay, the third payment came out fine. So randomly, I logged into my account and find that despite auto payment being set up and my card info being all correct the fourth payment was not taken. My email is entered as well and I still wasn’t notified of the issue.The chat people are nice, but unhelpful. I pay all of my bills online and always have, I have NEVER had so much of a single issue with any of my bills. It’s frustrating. So save yourself the stress and find someone else. I don’t know how difficult it could possibly be to take out a basic monthly auto enrolled payment and then email someone if it doesn’t go through. This is the 21st century for Pete’s sake.this company is incompetent at best.

I absolutely hate our service! Cable has has freeze ups and random green squares on our tv screens on both TVs. Internet you have to provide your own router which we WERE NOT TOLD when we ordered our service. While the techs were at our apartment my husband had to run to Walmart to buy a router. If we have a need for tech support we have to know if it's a router problem to call Netgear or a service problem to call hotwire. The techs came did our install and installed the router on one wall and on the complete other side of the room the cable. We wanted them together as we need the blue ray wired to the internet for our streaming. I called to have the router moved and the price to do this was starting at $85.00. I could go buy a new blue ray for $20.00 lee than having them move it. I hope the mngt of our apt complex changes policy soon so we can get rid of hotwire and go back to xfinity like we had prior to moving here. Just horrible and completely disgusted

If I could leave ZERO reviews it would be too many stars. We are bound by our HOA to use Hotwire. They provide terrible service, and their internet speeds are dismal, if not non existent. I had to have another company install an internet line, so that I could work from home at added expense. Hotwire doesn't care - customer service is non existent. Horrible internet speed. How does less than 0.1 download sound to you? What a monthly rip off - for 13 years.

One star rating is too generous. Hotwire does not deliver service levels as stated in a contract with our HOA, not even close. Many residents in our community work from home and are unable to be productive due to non existence of internet. It is unacceptable and they continue to ignore trying to resolve the issue in a timely manner, often times ignoring complaints made or denying there is an issue at all.

If you want the worst internet this is the company to go with and big apartment communities like uptown in n Cape Coral use Hot wire that have 10 year contracts sometimes longer uee Hotwire for internet and cable TV. Always check your cable / internet options before trying to get an apartment that uses the worst company.by the way Uptown costs hundreds of dollars just to see if you qualify and if you don't qualify you'll loss that money after you're jot qualified, so it's like giving them hundreds of dollars for nothing except being told you can't live here, rich people scaming hard working people out of money while doing background checks etc that cost uptown next to nothing!!

I also had a terrible experience with Hotwire during the changeover from Fibrant. First, it took 6 hours. SIX FREAKING HOURS to get any internet into our building. Then, we found out after the tech left that several switches and a gateway had been rendered inoperable. That left us to decide if we wanted to try the fix a senior engineer had offered but was not supported by the manufacturer or replace the equipment. We chose to replace. Finally, our caller ID has stopped working. When you ask tech support they advise that this function is contracted to another company. This is the case for at least 2 other businesses in the area as well. Also it seems a bit odd that all the positive comments are the only review these people have written. Almost like an attempt to bury the real people who have actually had similar experiences to mine... This company has been a nightmare and every person or business in the area that has dealt with them feels the same. Do not let these reviews that are disingenuous at best and outright lies at worst fool you into trusting this company. Did i mention that they also removed a tv from the wall and failed to mount it back??

Hello all...I’m here to join in on the horrible Hotwire reviews. If you’re not required to use them...STAY AWAY. I move down into a new home and there was no fiber wiring done. I’m going on week three and still have no internet. Upon calling them, I got few promised call backs. Most of my phone conversations were met with answers consisting of “I don’t know” and extremely long wait times to speak with people that couldn’t help me.I watched them tear up my yard yesterday digging for fiber and I am still waiting for services. Also the job done on wiring was pretty terrible. I don’t recall ever having (or seeing) a setup with wires hanging out of the wall...One technician did come out to connect the TV services and he was pleasant.If you don’t have to deal with them....RUN AWAY! There’s a reason they have 1.7 stars...UPDATE - 4/10/2019Appointment was scheduled for someone to come out and fix internet. Someone showed up a day early while no one was at home and NO ONE showed up when we actually planned to be home for the real appointment. Also, cable still laying above ground in my yard....

Hotwire is the single most awful company I’ve ever used. Literally EVERY single Hotwire product I have in my house breaks down constantly, and when it does work it has the worst performance I’ve ever seen. For instance, one of the product I have is their Fusion WiFi router and half of the time it would take you over five minutes just to load anything and the other half of the time it just fail. The only reason I’m using this garbage is because my neighborhood is requiring everyone to use Hotwire. And because of this reason I despise my neighborhood for even associating themselves with this abomination of a company. In short, to any who’s even considering buy anything made by Hotwire, DO NOT BUY IT! It will be the worst investment you’ll ever make.

These people are scammers. Never open an account with them. They make underhanded deals with apartment communities to scam you together. By the time you’ve been paying the bill in yyour rent for months Hotwire sends you their bill which has never been paid. I’m 650$ short so far. And I use Google fiber only. Still paying for service I can’t use. Thanks for nothing Hotwire scam machine.

Hotwire is a FAILURE! There is no service function. I pay some $91 per month to be placed on hold for 21+ minutes when I called to increase my service. There is no 'management' involvement to call. Whatever you do, Avoid Hotwire... - Bill Hackaday Jan. 07, 2019

Hotwire holds a decades old contract at our neighborhood, Riomar in Sarasota FL, where they only provide 3-10 Mbps (all of the homes around our neighborhood have 300Mpbs and faster connections). They refuse to negotiate, to upgrade our network or allow another provider to come in and replace them.We are down on a daily basis and anytime after 4PM the speeds are less than 3Mbps, below our contracted rate. It is impossible for our children to even do their homework. Forget trying to stream Netflix or other services.Even our phones which some of the elderly residents rely on to dial 911 do not work a good portion of the time.

This is actually a review I should have done years ago but I feel that I need to do. This company does not try to solve customer's problems, at least on the residential side. I would connection problems when it rained or when they were working on a different unit in my complex. If there was tech working next door and my service was disconnected. He wouldn't look at what he did to disconnect me. As I work from home, I've lost several days of work because of the poor service I received from Hotwire. The other tennants complained as well. My complex eventually successfully sued to get out of Hotwire's contract and was able to have Comcast/Xfinity to service the complex. I am completely satisfied with my new service. If Hotwire plans to stay in business, the need to do a whole lot better with customer service!

Horrible company... was on hold for 18 minutes to be helped about an outstanding bill. This is the first bill I have received from them since I have acquired their service 2 and a half months ago. Come to find out the lady that I signed my contract through butchered my email address. I even emailed her about 3 weeks ago about not having my account number or have received a bill and I still have yet to get a response. This company makes Comcast look amazing. Another note their customer service is the worst I have ever had to deal with.

This is the worst cable provider I have ever had. Almost every time it rains, our community loses our local cable channels, and when you call them ( if you get an someone to answer ) you get the run around and no clear cut information. It really is frustrating!!!!!!

Horrible company and they obviously don't care as long as they can cash your check every month. Have been with them for 7 months, Internet is a constant problem and this weekend the whole service went out and they said they'd be happy to have someone out Thursday. There is they? It was Friday evening when they got the call. Work from home in more often than not I have to go somewhere else to get an Internet signal, 3 trips to repair the problem and still the problem has not changed.

Stay away at all cost if you can.I got connected with hot wire on December 11th 2017. Since then, multiple attempts have been done to try to rectify the problem with the signal.Several time per day every thing goes out, no TV, no phone, no internet. They have change fiber optic, modem, receiver, they have even changed the port to which I was connected and even done some other work remotely. I am paying about $200.00 for this . The worst is that they have an exclusivity contract with the complex where I live.I found out that it seem that this is practically the only way they can have money coming in. luring some multifamily housing company to lock in a 10 years exclusivity contract with them.do yourself a favor, if you can get an other provider, please, do so.I only have one moth left with them, according to what they say. Apparently I have a 6 months contract with them. Funny, I never signed anything.when I am done with this none existing contract, I will use my darn phoe as a hut-spot. probably more reliable than Hotwire.

Town home complex I live in must have a exclusive contract with Hotwire. I cant chose anyone else. Cable is down a lot and so is the internet. Cable is down just now and the internet is very slow, the customer help desk has a busy dial tone and not even a recording. I've lived in many different places and they are the worst Cable and Internet provider i've had.

Wait times on hold are crazy! Currently on hold for over 18 minutes and counting. No music to even let you know that you are still connected. 24 minutes now.32 minutes. 41 minutes. They are making Comcast look so good right now. 49 minutes and still on hold. Finally got thru after an hour and gentleman was very helpful.

RUN FAR AWAY! Just like other users said, if I could give them a zero I would. They have THE WORST customer service I have EVER experienced in my life!Words cannot fully express how much I hate dealing with these people. But unfortunately, they have an agreement with our HOA and I am stuck. They miss appointments, they put you down for one time, but then show up at another time, they hang up on you, they have ZERO social skills dealing with customers, and the list continues.If you have a chance - DO NOT sign with them. AND, if you're looking at apartments or homes, ASK if they're a provider - if they are, RUN!

your company is a joke. Schedule appointment, doesnt show up, tells you "oh, we meant this day". dont use. And Hotwire, dont copy paste your generic "we apologize for being worse than Comcast" ridiculous garbage i see you posting on all the negative reviews. How bout instead you take ownership. Our satisfaction obviously means nothing, and you saying the opposite only ticks us off more. Your company is a joke.

Don’t use Hotwire! Unfortunately we have no choice in our community. I have spent hours on hold (the hold music must be designed to make you deaf or insane— or hang up). I’ve been bounced from one department to another. We’ve had promises of call- backs that never happen. The latest was a no- show for installation. When he came the next day, he didn’t know why he was there and didn’t have the equipment needed (not his fault). I will say, those who have come to the house have been pleasant and professional.

Probably, the worst experience one can have when it comes to basic internet service. I have internet with them due to the fact that the association i'm affiliated with, signed a contract in which only they (hotwire) can provide our internet service. My internet speed is 1 mbps, yeah, ONE, probably the one of the lowest speeds, if not the lowest speed in the country, with no option for upgrade. Let alone the fact that the service barely ever works, half the time i'm just sitting down and looking at a webpage load for half an hour only to realize that the service has been dropped. It really baffles me the fact that this company is still alive and hasn't shutdown yet due to pure negligence probably from corporate. It simply can not get much worse than this. Take your service somewhere else folks, hopefully you can see this in time.

Hotwire is "baiting" consumers on search pages offering deals they do not honor. This is an illegal practice. I was baited for a car rental @ $10.99 per day. When I hit the link the prices were not even close... This experience "alienated" me from ever considering Hotwire at anytime and to share this information with friends and relatives. #deceptivebusinesspractices

If I could give this company half a star I would! They locked into a contract with my complex which they are now taking to court to get out of and I am SOOO happy! The internet never works! It goes out for days and when I call customer service, all they do I say unplug it and plug it back in. The amount I pay for is ridiculous and the speeds is so slow!!! The representatives have the worst attitudes and the techs have no clue what they are doing when they come out. I am tired of waking up everyday and having to unplug my box because the internet isn't working.. I should be credited for the amount of time it doesn't work. You pay for 30 days worth of service but it goes out for 15 of those days!!!!DONT get this service and if your complex only uses them then MOVE! Now I see why they lock places into contracts...they know they are delivering a horrible product and no one would voluntarily choose them.

They are the worst costumer service company. They are very shady about their business, they will add services to your account without letting you know and than later they will sant you a nice bill after 4 months in the mail . No other bills will come to your mail , just one notice saying that they will disconnect your service and you are past due , it's too late but than , nothing you can do, you just gone have to pay that bill that you never asked for and never sign up for or they will send you to collections . If you had a choice , don't doooooooo business with them. Look at the paper work 10 times and if possible video tape the conversations with them. They will do everything to get money from you. Good luck.

STAY AWAY!! This is by far the worst internet company I have ever had. They locked a contract with my community and we are forced to use them. If you are using them test your internet speed!! I have been pain for 50Mbps and if I'm lucky I get 10. I have been calling customer service once a week for the past 2 months and all they can say we are working on it, but can't provide a time frame. I'm on three months now with slow internet.

THE WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE and TERRIBLE PRODUCT. My internet has been out for 2 days and I have been calling at different times of the day to wait over 25 min before someone decided to answer the phone. When they finally did she told me it would be another WEEK before they could come out. Are you serious? The lady never apologized for long wait times or the fact that they could not get someone out. She was snarky and if my apartment complex didn't have a contract with them, I would cancel it all together. ABSOLUTELY LIVID. I have had Comcast, Uverse, and Direct Tv at different locations throughout the years and have never experienced anything like this. WORST COMPANY I HAVE EVER DEALT WITH.

Our community recently signed a contract with hotwire. MISTAKE! The only positive is when we do have service the picture has more vibrant colors and it is clear. However the negatives strongly outweigh the positives. Almost everyday we either lose the entire picture, the sound will be gone, or the pixels may be scrambled. I notice nothing different with the internet. When you do have an issue, they rarely fix it over the phone and seldom show up for appointments. Keep in mind we may have our TV on 4-5 hours a day at the most. Most of that time is just for noise. Choose another company. This one is not worth the aggravation.
