It is really great for our community that Hotwire assigns an account manager. Jocelyn Forsythe is our account manager. It has been a joy to deal with her. She is extremely responsive and competent. We had a problem that needed a tech to get resolved. Jocelyn sent Ricardo to me. Within minutes he solved what seemed impossible to solve. He is terrific.

Having had a few issues with appointments for service, hotwire has , by far, the fastest and most reliable internet for the price.

Emmet was our Hotwire supporter and was an amazing helper. He stayed on the line with me long enough to figure out that I can't get hoHBO Max on my smart tv, so we worked on a tv in my other room. He was so patient, and I couldn't have done it without him.

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

Emmet Frank was excellent in instructing me, over the phone, how to correct my HBO Max subscription which became listed as expired, which was incorrect, to working again. What a friendly and intelligent young man. I was very impressed. Kudos to Emmet!!!!

The service provided by Francisco Ulloa and Anthony - Both Senior Technicians. They work is impecable. Both very professionally, highly recommend them. Ask for them for your next job. Thank you. Greatly appreciate it. I give them 5 stars. Once the services are installed specially the 1GB Internet, is superb. In the other hand, the experience with the service + the dispatcher and the multiple appointments, is below (5 stars).
01:24 16 Nov 21
I would like to commend Laurie. She is very professional, and courteous. She is very committed to satisfaction, and dedicated to excellence. She is the epitome of customer service, and is a great asset there at Hotwire Communications.Many thanks Laurie!

Emmet was very clear on what he was reported to do and answered questions to problems the audience had.

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!

We lost picture and cable connection on the TV we use most plus another TV had not been used in several years because we couldn’t get it to turn on. Yesterday an outstanding young man, Fatos, a Hotwire technician, arrived and very soon both TV’s were working properly. He was efficient, polite and found the problem with each TV right away. Highly recommend this technician
23:22 25 Oct 21
We were lucky to reach Prionna Kenney to help us understand the bill we received. Prionna explained step by step what each item is and the cost. We even had some good laughs. I would like her supervisor to know how personable, good listener and she is very patient I would like to talk to her again, if I should need to work something out again with Hotwire.

For five years, Hotwire maintained the position that my television service and internet were functional, when in fact the service was not connected. Countless service technicians came to my home. They confirmed the fact that the cable was not functional and stated that they would report the problem, citing the fact that a two man crew was necessary to make the connection. The problem was never addressed. This problem would have continued forever, if Mr. Cody Cunning had not intervened in the process. From the moment that he was made aware of the problem, he worked diligently to resolve the issue. A knowledgeable technician was dispatched to analyze the situation. His report was reviewed immediately by Mr, Cunning, who then sent a two man crew to make the necessary instalation. Cody then checked to make sure that the service was in fact working. Mr. Cunning continued to demonstrate a level of excellence, when he resolved the billing problem associated with this lack of television service.Cody Cunning demonstrated the true meaning of customer service. He is an exemplary model, who Hotwire should use to train their customer service team. Thank you Cody for your efforts. Your dedication is truly appreciated.

I called today to perform an account change and Delois Cooper answer the call; before anything was said, I already mention to her her tone of voice was great, soft and respectful. right after, she made a great rapport converstation and assess how happy she would be to help. She did took care of my situation, but she did accomplish it in such a fashion that I am taking the time to write these. She is a great asset to your company. Nowadays that kind of great service is in extinction, more and more we get frustrated on calls, and robots, etc. Every detail of the interaction made me feel at ease, respected, important, that she care, and there was no rush. The more important thing is she accomplish my request smoothly and even guide me why to reconsider. Plain and simple amazing. She should train other employees on the subject.

Terrence Moore provided me with exceptional service. I was in the middle of an out-of-state move, so I was obviously stressed. He took care of all the details without me having to follow-up. I definitely felt like my account was a priority. Highly recommended.

I was blessed to have Mr. Terrence Moore set me up. He was a true professional and a pleasure to work with. I am fresh into my new house and internet is a must in my line of work so it was nice to have it go as smooth as it did to get all set up. I really felt like part of the family with him and he made my set up a priority.Mr. Bo was my tech. It was a pleasure to have him in the house and he was a expert in his craft.He informed me on each step and showed me how to operate every piece of equipment.He was very respectful of my home and my family.It was a very comfortable vibe having him in the home while he worked which was very nice.

Kristi and Laurie truly are Customer Service experts! They go above and beyond to provide the best experience possible! The best part about living in Salisbury is being able to get Fision Hotwire. Clear picture, fast internet, and great pricing. 10 stars!!!
16:14 03 Jul 21
Very recently Account Representative Kerline Kongal and Technician Horace Manning visited my home to observe a concern that arose during a home inspection. Horace knew exactly what to do and a few minutes later all was very ok ! All too often companies do not hear from customers when everything goes right. People don't take the time except to complain. So I thought it important to let you know the caliber of your employees, Kerline and Horace. Very simply The best !!!

Recently moved to a Hotwire service area and Terrance was phenomenal during the entire process from start to finish! Terrance literally had my family of 7 up and running with internet services in less than 24 hours! To Terrance and the entire Hotwire team thank you so much for the amazing customer support! I’m excited to be apart of the Hotwire family!
22:07 14 Jun 21
Had a problem with the tech showing up to early and when I called Hotwire was told that he would have to come back on another day .I called the Hot Wire supervisor for Mystic Point tower 100 and she solved the problem and had the tech come back in less that a half an hour, and then she even called back to make sure every thing went ok..What fabulous service she gave. She is a GREAT ASSET to be working for Hot Wire. If I had a company I would hire her in a heart beat.

Eric Santos is the most dedicated and professional customer service representative at this entire Company. He took the time to review my case, talked to another manager to find and resolve my concern. He was so kind, he replied all my emails, he is the kind of professionals that will make every Company feel proud !!! Hotwire Communications should know that you have Gemstone as an employee, Eric Santos you rock !!! Thanks so much once again. Kind regards, Maria Elisa.

Working with a client of mine and had a related issue needing Hotwire and a coordinated appointment. Explained issue to Hotwire and they responded with having a great tech arrive while I was working on their computer and working together problem was solved. Kudos to Manager, tech and the Hotwire folks.Many thanks to Manager of Hotwire who continues to provide outstanding customer service and great management of the Hotwire group at Boca West
18:24 25 May 21
I have to say that my experience with Hotwire Communications has always been pristine but the level of accountability & follow up is superb. Recently had an outage at my property that lasted well into the later part of the day & I am expecting to hear nothing until Monday because it was the Friday or just have the services automatically come back on. What happened was the representative at Woodfield Country Club contacted the home well after the regular hours to provide me with an update of when to expect services to be working and the very next day, a Saturday, he reached out again to make sure everything was working. Just amazing service and customer service.

Cody has been a tremendous addition to the Hotwire team. Cody has been our Account Representative here at High Point West since the beginning of our contract and has proved to be a great Rep. and an overall great guy. We will sorely miss him but wish him the best of luck in his new position. Cody, we salute for a job well done !!!!

My family was experiencing internet speed hiccups with our wifi. Although the Hotwire techs did the best they could nothing was getting to the root of the problem. We were becoming very frustrated and asked Hotwire to send their very best to fix the problem. Enter Edward Eyerman the Field Operations Supervisor for Hotwire. Edward came to our house and spent almost 2 hours finding, diagnosing and fixing our wifi issues. What's more, Edward personally checked out all our devices to make sure we were getting the best wifi on all of them. Mr. Eyerman's attention to the customer's needs is a lost art and it was very refreshing to see how much he cared for our families internet experience. Edward Eyerman is certainly the Best of the Best. Well Done!!

I want to commend Veronica Anthony on her excellent service. Not only did she have patience over a long phone call but she was able to expedite service to my home. Thank you Veronica!
12:26 28 Apr 21
I expected the worst but got the BEST when I contacted Hotwire on behalf of my mother. The technician, Cory, reviewed her entire setup to give her the best possible computer experience even though her PC is outdated. When I called the office, Daniel Moreira and Marysol both helped me by answering all my questions and offering solutions. Terri Burgess took ownership of another issue, making certain when she went off her shift that my service call was logged properly. I give the whole Hotwire Customer Service Team 5 stars!

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.

Thank you so much for your kindness and help.

16:08 13 May 19
We use Hotwire services at home and at my work. Responsive customer service. Great internet and TV connections. I appreciate Hotwire being an active participant in our community.
13:45 08 May 19
The transition from Fibrant to Hotwire was a quick and smooth experience. The customer service with Hotwire has stepped up their game. 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!!!
19:07 06 May 19
We were Fibrant customers and the transition over to Hotwire was pretty smooth. We've since added phone lines through Hotwire's VOIP. Those especially are a great deal in comparison with other VOIPs out there. Plus they were tons easier to work with than Ring Central.
21:16 03 May 19
Hotwire is good for our community. I wish more people knew that Salisbury, NC had gigabit fiber.
20:10 03 May 19
We were switched over from Fibrant to Hotwire. We have a complicated business and residential system. Hotwire has been very helpful and responsive. Their fast speed and great customer service are giving them a great reputation!
19:05 03 May 19
We just made the switch from Fibrant to Hotwire and are very happy with everything. Customer service is great!
18:51 03 May 19
I have seen a lot of people giving negative reviews and I really don't understand it. We use the service at home for internet, television and phone service and I have never had a single issue with it to date. The customer service people I have dealt with have been helpful and professional. If ever a problem does come up, I am confident that they will do everything in their power to resolve it quickly and efficiently.
18:35 03 May 19
We're getting ready to move and I'm so excited about switching to Hotwire! I can't wait to ditch my cable!
18:01 03 May 19
Our experience with Hotwire has been wonderful! We love the fast internet service and customer service is excellent.
17:52 03 May 19
I was with Fibrant for 4 years and I have recently moved and was converted over to Hotwire. I am a very pleased customer. The conversion went well and everyone that was involved was very nice. Everything about Hotwire was explained to me in detail. I have since enjoyed my TV and internet without any problems at all. The package I also went with was very reasonable. I strongly recommend Hotwire.
17:39 03 May 19
5 Stars for commercial use! 0 outages so far!
16:57 03 May 19
My internet and phone connection are both much better with Hotwire! Glad I made the switch!
16:49 03 May 19
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.
16:41 03 May 19
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.
16:16 03 May 19
Great speed, just works and no outages..
15:36 03 May 19
Hotwire has been a wonderful sponsor for the arts here in Salisbury. Their staff have always been very pleasant and professional to work with!
15:08 03 May 19
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.

I love Hotwire!! The best internet I have ever had! I stream a lot so I need fast dependable internet and Hotwire gives me that! Never any issues!

I love Hotwire Communications cable, phone, and internet. The changeover for me was the best thing I could have done. The internet speeds and cable are exceptional and friendly local customer services when needed. The installers were kind and the process was amazing. Thank you Hotwire.

I had a problem with customer service and wrote a review. Their social media customer care contacted me and figured out what went wrong and explained everything and solved the problem. GREAT job! Thanks

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.

Emmet Frank does a wonderful training.A good listener and engaged on making sure any questions are answered.If you need to become familiar with your Hotwire services I definitely recommend taking the training class.

Terrence Moore did an amazing job assisting me with setting up service. I cannot give a full 5 stars without knowing what type of service I will receive when its installed. Company should also provide a chart of service cost BEFORE sign-up.
06:06 22 Jul 21
Terrence Moore displayed the services and professionalism desired of every customer service client. He was able to explain things clearly abs concisely and made sure I was set to go abs be how to get quick access to help 24/7! I truly enjoyed working with Terrence to understand the system, my choices, other options and that in general, I was a a happy client. Worth service like that: I’m a happy client!

An employee of Hotwire Communication name Mrs Deloris Cooper is a very good asset to your company. I had been trying to get upgraded to America's Top 200 for over a week. I got connected to her today and she has been great. Her knowledge, cooperation and attention to her job in helping me get what I have been asking for is unbelievable. Mrs Cooper has accomplished more in 2 hours than others have in 1 week. You need more employees like Mrs Cooper. Thank you Mrs Cooper for a job well done.

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.

Terrible customer service! And not to mention you really can’t receive any help with the biggest issues after 5:30 PM
13:07 09 Feb 21
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.

Many problems with the internet
22:41 04 Jun 20
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.

Glad I've read these reviews prior to our community considering switching our current service provider. Doesn't sound like the type of customer service we need especially with a long term contract.
02:35 08 Feb 19
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.
20:28 22 Oct 21
Got this service two weeks ago. In this time we have lost internet twice. The first time I reset the modem and got the service back. This time it’s been 6 hours and counting without service. I called the customer service number and could only get a recording saying that service was out in our area and they would call my number (robocall) when it was restored. No option to talk to someone to find out what the issue is. Would not do business with them if there was another option for high speed internet
12:33 17 Sep 21
Great customer service and internet speed. Unfortunately, the TV service is horrible. I feel like I went back 20-30 years in technology. Very poorly executed in every aspect including the remote. I'm switching my TV service back to Comcast so I can actually replay premium channel movies after they have started, create easy to access favorites and have direct access to streaming apps. And I'll be able to see the backlit remote at night! Let me know when your technology becomes current.

My router was working in one apartment and I moved to another apartment in the same building and now they say my router is outdated don't work and they want 200 dollars for a new one. I left the old router on and a few hours later I had internet and it was working.
20:59 22 Apr 21
Field techs are great people. Service is excellent when it’s working. If something breaks or if the service goes out in your home, it’s usually down for days. It appears that they have very poor internal quality control and communications between various departments.

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.
14:28 07 Nov 18
I live in a community with dozens of Hotwire customers. Hotwire advertises their extensive network of fiber optic cable. We've asked for that many times but still have the outdated technology.
13:27 23 Jan 17
Tech try really hard to please but are poorly trained. We're newbies but already our internet went down & we had to call & then 2 technicians came out. Internet service is fine when working same speed as Comcast who had the worst customer service on the planet.
16:51 19 Jan 22
Worst internet service I've ever had. It is unreliable and their customer service is unhelpful. They are the only company that services my building but I don't think any of the residents are satisfied with their service. I hope management makes a change soon.
22:00 13 Jan 22
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.
04:18 17 Dec 21
What a joke….the internet never works. Don’t know how this company is still running. And terrible customer service.
00:48 17 Dec 21
The absolute worst internet I’ve ever had. I can barely stream movies, and I’m constantly disconnected during zoom meetings. It’s incredibly frustrating to work from home like this. Pretty sure they paid for all of the positive reviews on here. My friend also uses Hotwire and has the same issues that I have. Don’t waste your money.
16:29 15 Dec 21
Business Service is out.Customer support was basically no good.Rep not returning calls.Last time it happened I ask the rep how to get out of the contact. I was told I had to pay the complete term to get out.
01:02 13 Dec 21
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.
03:38 12 Dec 21
We live in Boca Lago community. They use to have Comcast. Not sure why they went with Hotwire. It’s terrible. They do not have up to date movies and they are not in HD. If you go to network the shows that are pretty old. Hotwire really needs to update there system. Comcast is so much better.
00:49 10 Dec 21
THE WORST ISP EVERPLEASE DO NOT ALLOW YOUR HOA TO CONTRACT WITH THIS COMPANYconstant problems with internet , alot of packet loss to servers with fiber optic connection . honestly hate them so much and im trapped using them because of my hoa.
06:53 07 Dec 21
Horrible. Service goes out at least once or twice every month or months. Today the service has been out since 5 pm. Almost 2am and nothing, because no one is working on it. I miss Xfinity but I'm trapped in Tailwinds with HOTWIRE, which is super expensive for lousy services and quality.
01:49 07 Dec 21
This is the second time within 4 days that I have no internet service the last time it was out for 2 days and it looks like it will be at least until tomorrow. Hotwire service is terrible. Meeting with HOA this week to remove Hotwire from our community ! This is ridiculous that we lose service so often!
13:20 06 Dec 21
Customer Service by Laurie and Kristi Great 5 stars.....Issue with Hotwire terrible...this morning Monday Dec 6 2021 will be the 4th time in 3 weeks i have had to deal with the same issue....They fix the issue and 2 days later change it back...it is 100% on Hotwire....They did not follow through on promises made when they took over from Fibrant and it has been nothing but a fight for them to honor the grandfathered in clients from before...Small business owners who need UPLOAD and Downnload speed are just thrown under the bus...

18:57 03 Nov 21
Ok two weeks ago I paid my internet but I saw I made a mistake of paying twice so I call hotwire immediately and I explain what happened so they said they will report the issue about the billing twice to a supervisor and they told I to wait 7 business days to receive the refund so then the seven days pass no refund so I've call them again this pass Friday ask to speak with a supervisor they told me a supervisor was on the line and to take care of the matter another few days pass no refund call them this morning I found out I never spoke with a supervisor that Friday it was another customer service rep they lie and deceived me they're are the worst internet company I've been so don't every trust them and they service with them THEIR VERY DISHONEST TO CUSTOMERS
22:46 20 Oct 21
Absolutely terrible. They overcharged my account and were not able to resolve the issue while on the phone with me. They told me it would be handled by their supervisor and gave me an order number (1672839). They have kept me completely out of the loop. No voicemail, no email, no letter. Now, I came home to no internet and I cannot get anyone on the phone or find out what happened. Beware of being ripped off by them.
12:40 19 Oct 21
Probably one of the worst ISP out there. I’ve been trying to get more speed in my apartment for over 4 months and they haven’t come, they are not making more money, and I’ve called countless time, they say they’ll call back and nothing. Their sales representative Theresa will contact you the first day and won’t speak to you ever again. They have connectivity issues pretty often and the speed is laggy most of the time.Customer service is hit or miss, depends on agent (agent will laugh at your face since they think they know more than you) Worst part is I can’t switch since the building where I live has a life-long contract with them.
13:24 15 Oct 21
TRRAAAASSHHH COMPANY !!! Absolute garbage !!! Don't ever let these clowns charge you late fees . The company SCAMS !!!!They put you on auto pay then 2-3...
15:52 12 Oct 21
THE WORSE NIGHTMARE.If you have a choice please stay away from Hotwire communications. Calling customer service for technically assistance is worse than a nightmare. They can never help and they constantly lied. I reached so many times via email and phone to the manager account for my location Chandra Manley, And she never responded, no my emails no the phone calls. In almost 2 months she answered once and said I will call you right back and she never did. If you work from home you will be without a job very soon.The technicians arrived home and they explained clearly that they can’t do nothing about the problem, that all the system problems were at the main office location and they asked me to reach out the account manager for the location, and this account manager never ever responded the phone calls or email. Is impossible yo communicate with this person.Just a nightmare paying for a service that doesn’t work.
19:30 08 Oct 21
Hotwire is not a good company for anykind if arrangements at all. Dont let me speak on there customer service not helpful. I was told by representative that its 24 hours to speak with a manager wow what kind of business are they running. Hope somebody buys them out customer service not helpful and worthless.
00:13 06 Oct 21
Worst than Comcast. Lose cable about twice a week. Totally ridiculous. Who ever made the decision to go with them didn't do there homework.
14:06 18 Sep 21
Whoever works the customer service lines need better training, Sandra in particular. I would never recommend this company.
15:11 15 Sep 21
I have texted questions on our site two times and have not received any response.Your tutorial stinks. There are two people talking at once. And it's full of advertisements.Have called your office and the technician didn't even know how to set up my TV to receive Netflix and furthermore did not ever hear of a Netflix modem.Very disappointed and very much miss AtlanticBroadband.

Worst customer service. I bought a plan and it says that is working perfectly but instead I can’t stream properly the image in my tv. The lady in costumer service told me that I should use a cable from the router to my tv even when they are in different walls
15:02 22 Aug 21
**THE WORSE**If you have a choice please stay away from Hotwire communications. Calling customer service for technically assistance is a joke. Either they can never help and your constantly lied to.If you work from home your screwed!!The only technician that is knowledgeable and willing to help you is Duane S. He’s the only good honest person with this company.
20:04 20 Aug 21
I really hate Hotwire with a passion. So many issues. I hate that I’m forced to use the service because of my community.
14:23 14 Aug 21
They "know" about issues for months, but don't know how to fix it. Only reason I'm stuck with these scam artists is because of the property I live at.
15:25 11 Aug 21
Hotwire way behind in their installation in Costa Del Sol. They are also "dragging their feet" on repayment of funds expended by residents due to late installation. My one year old HP computer (Intel Core i5-9400 CPU@ 2.90GHZ, 64-bit Operating System - 12.GB (11.8 GB useable) Two clean up programs used weekly including driver updates. My computer opens programs the same speed as with our old copper wired ATTPS: On first customer service call, I was given a stern warning that if the remote complaint was "my fault" I would be billed for the technician! Technician on arrival immediately said I had had the "input" set incorrectly. Strangely he went to his van and came back with a new remote and it worked. He left without acknowledging the problem with with the remote. Be wary of this company and examine your bills with a fine toothed comb!

Update 2: Well, I am still without internet. They installed it... twice now...both times the internet has been gone in less than a day. When I called about it they tried to fix it remotely but said they needed to send someone out to the home. They scheduled an appointment for 5 days later. Not ideal, but fine. The day before, they call me saying they need to change the time of the appointment to a time that wouldn't work for me. They said they would call me back the next day to get a new appointment scheduled. It's been over a week.Update: After Posting online, the very next day I received a few calls offering to assist with the situation. It turns out that there was some confusion about whether the company could even service my address. The day after that a technician came to my house and determined that yes, it is covered by the Hotwire network. An install should be occurring next week so I look forward to having a fast connection! I definitely wish the delays could have been communicated more clearly from from the beginning, but every person I talked to was kind, even when they were unable to help.Original Review:I have been trying to get internet set up for the past month. Call after call, they keep saying they will call me "tomorrow" to schedule an appointment. A month in I would have happily moved to another company; but they have exclusive control over the Fiber in the community so I can't do that. I will happily update this review once I actually receive internet service, but it should not take 10 phone calls and hours of holding in order to get an installation scheduled.

My community switched to hotwire because Comcast had too many outages. Hotwire,in the 5 months we've had them, have had three times the outages Comcast had in the last year and the outages are hours and hours and hours long. Customer service never has a single answer or estimated time frame and they're all named Ann for some reason. Avoid this piece of trash company. hope it burns to the ground.

Worse customer service ever. Worse experience ever. Run away. They miss appointments and show up 6 hours late and leave because the technician "couldn't find parking" LIES. They are unorganized. Unable to answer questions or don't have access to information. They hang up the phone on you. I've spent 4+ hours on the phone with them and been trying to get internet setup for days.This company is a joke, unprofessionable, unreliable, and will only waste your time.
23:09 03 Jun 21
Absolutely the worst internet service provider I've ever had the misfortune of being subjected to. TRASH
00:45 29 May 21
Absolutely terrible. 10 days to get a tech out to install. 10..... It's 2021. Having an issue now on a Friday night of a holiday weekend and they can try nothing remotely just a tech Sunday morning. A joke.
13:35 21 May 21
Pathetic service and no regards for someone else’s time. Sadly I had no choice since my apartment complex is only wired for Hotwire.

Made a billing error, promised to fix the mistake already twice, and 2 months later still cannot get it corrected. Customer service person was horrible and aggressive, did not find the record of the issue and kept repeating: "this is not my mistake" while representing the company. To be fair the second person was much more competent after i hung up. But the first one is the one who made me write this review. I would fire herUpdate to my review above (May 2021):I wish that 2 months later I could have provided the news that the issue has been fixed and the company has mitigated the problem. Unfortunately this is not only not the case but it just keeps getting worse:1) I had 5 customer service calls since then.2) Every customer service call lasted 30min - 1 hour until they pull up all the backlogs from the previous conversations and I repeat my story again.3) After every customer service call I was PROMISED by the customer service person that the issue will be resolved in 24-48 hours, and they would contact me to confirm4) As you can imagine nobody ever contacted me back after any of our conversations within the promise timeframe, and I had to repeat the process again5) Customer service people were saying that they see the backlog of my calls, but don't know why no action was taken within the company - and just kept submitting the request internally through their system with no actionsMy questions are: a) Why do you promise that it will be resolved in 24-48 hours 5 times in a row with no result, and why do I need to believe you this time? b) Why is there no action take inside the company despite the log in the internal system? c) If there is a problem - why nobody contacts me back, but put it on my shoulders to call again and waist my time repeating the same storyI know some companies can be chaotic and ignore individual users, but this is beyond unacceptable. Maybe their strategy is to make this process so painful for me that I just give up and settle this erroneous bill. But i wont! This now a matter of principle to me.Reading some other reviews below it seems like a common thing to do for them - generate random invoices, and then make it your problem to prove they are wrong.The bottom line - if you ever have a customer service issue with them - this is going to be a nightmare for you at no fault of yours. I am only using them because of the HOA. If you have a choice - stay away from them, it will save you a lot of nerves!If I could leave negative starts for the customer service - I certainly would!

The hotwire on demand menu is difficult to navigate if you want to watch recent past episodes. The episodes take too long to appear on demand . Terrible set up. They should use the Xfinity model much easy to navigate. My community switched from Xfinity. Big mistake.Xfinity to Hotwire
17:40 01 May 21
Hands down the WORST service out there
13:21 27 Apr 21
If I could give a “0” star review I would. We were forced to use this backward company when we moved into our new home. I have to believe someone got paid a lot of money for this company to still be the ISP after 10 years. Service is slow and very spotty. I work from home so dependability is of primary concern and we do not have that. When there is an issue you can’t even get them to answer a call or chat. They ghost you. I may have to get a hotspot from my Mobil carrier if this doesn’t get better.
19:57 25 Apr 21
I keep receiving false bills from hotwire and now even from the collection agency. I can only warn to open an account with hotwire. you may ruin your credit history.
03:14 13 Mar 21
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.
12:06 09 Mar 21
I've never seen something on Yelp with such polarizing reviews. Everything is either a 1-star or 5 star. I had my first experience(s) with Hotwire and now...
11:25 07 Mar 21
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.
20:11 06 Mar 21
Not good...at all.Forced upon neighborhood.Need Comcast back

16:16 19 Feb 21
Scheduled this instalation two weeks out asked for a day off from work, the "technician" came out at the appointment time 8am-11am(8:15arrival). 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.
16:02 05 Feb 21
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!
22:10 03 Feb 21
Terrible communication in every way. I like the product but don't care for the company.
17:29 27 Jan 21
Absolutely Terrible Company. If your apartment complex is in an exclusive deal with this company, run away and don't look back.
18:25 19 Jan 21
I HAVE CALLED 9 TIMES TO TRY AND GET HOME SECURITY SET UP. NO CALL BACKS. WORST COMPANY GUESS THEY DONT LIKE NEW BUSINESS
23:58 14 Jan 21
16:47 01 Jan 21
If I could I would rate Hotwire communications a -5(negative 5). The internet, TV, phone CONSTANTLY goes out. I will never recommend hotwire to anyone.
16:46 25 Nov 20
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!
20:36 16 Nov 20
terrible customer service; sat on hold for more than an hour. Business internet is down which means phone lines are down; I will be switching services ASAP; now with Spectrum and could not be happier!!

17:22 10 Nov 20
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.
21:40 09 Nov 20
Do not trust this website. Looking for a rental car online at hotwire Says $18 A-day 33 after taxes or different car for 20 but get cheaper prices on the app download the app so I do that and the same cars $19a day 34 after tax??? False advertising do not get the app! It is cheaper online!!

Horrible service and horrible customer service. Our community made us use this terrible company! Don’t use and run away when they start lying to you!
16:57 09 Oct 20
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.
01:06 03 Oct 20
Mike Honorio is terrible to deal with. We left our unit in February and he is still trying to charge us an additional 2 months despite having tenants take over immediately following our leave. He is trying to collect TWICE on one unit. Horrible customer service, if I were you I’d RUN from Hotwire.Update: No one has reached out, they couldn’t care less about their customers.
15:19 01 Oct 20
Not an easy bill to pay, couldn't get online to work. So you have to buy a stamp or walk in to office in Salisbury. Covid made it hard to walk in.So service turned off non-payment.Now the fun part. 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 ... = /

A contractor cut my cable. Have been trying to get them to come out but they won’t even set up a date. The last call I had with them the person on the call said she’d send an email to a supervisor. Then she hung up. Still waiting on the supervisor with no internet or TV. Terrible customer service.
13:43 04 Sep 20
These people shouldn’t even get no one star I have been waiting on someone to come and install internet and cable since Tuesday and have heard nothing this is crazy. I haven’t even used y’all yet and I am already to the point where I’m about to cancel all services
15:32 31 Aug 20
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.
16:31 10 Aug 20
Absolutely the worst customer service with any company I have ever dealt with.Been without internet for almost a week, cant ger no answers.....STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY!!!
21:27 05 Aug 20
Since I've got my cable turned on by hotwire they have been giving me issues. Lost a payment, cable was turned off because I was late 35 dollars. I do not recommend this cable service to ANYONE. Its always something and I'm very displeased with the company at this point. Worse service ever

We recently moved into this community which forces us to use Hotwire communications internet .I upload videos online for my business.I am not exaggerating but I unable to livestream and get my business going . Their internet connection is terribly slow and upload speed is nuts.I called customer service they charged me extra $99 per month to get top speed but still I amUnable to livestream .Their terrible customer service is late as on hold and I am loosing so money because of them.NEVER EVER TAKE THEIR SERVICE IF YOUR BUSINESS IS ENTIRELY DEPEND ON INTERNET .
12:38 15 May 20
Worst communications company ever. They are the communications/internet company in my neighborhood so I have to use them or pay their fees on top of the company I would like to use. They have the worst service ever....don't use them if you don't need to......
23:12 14 May 20
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.
02:23 28 Mar 20
Most awful internet I have ever had. Less than 1mbps download speed almost every day for three years.
15:11 11 Mar 20
They are the internet provider of our subdivision and the internet is consistently slow or not working. We have outages on a weekly basis sometimes for 2-3 days at a time. I would never recommend their internet to anyone.
02:41 12 Feb 20
Horrible,run as fast as you can.
22:04 07 Feb 20
I am forced by my leasing company to have this travesty of a company as an cable and internet provider. I experience constant disconnects, issues with connectivity when we only have 2-3 devices connected. They signed an exclusive deal so no chance of competition which is understandable when you can’t compete on quality of service
17:34 20 Jan 20
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.
08:13 02 Jan 20
I just moved into Grand Paradiso community in Venice. This service is the worst. Bringing the community down. Older folks dont care as much as the newer younger residents do about what they're watching. I cant stream anything. This is the worst ever
22:42 27 Dec 19
Refuses to carry NBA network because it costs THEM too much... maybe that’s what you should be using our exorbitant cable bill for.
14:15 29 Nov 19
I have this internet as a part of my HOA package and it’s terrible. The prices to upgrade are 3 TIMES as much as other providers. At any given time my internet will slow down to a crawl making me unable to work from home without paying exorbitant prices!!!!! I’m going to request we change internet companies as soon as possible!
02:49 15 Nov 19
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.
15:36 01 Nov 19
Worst company I’ve ever had internet with . Save yourself some money and don’t go through them even if you have no other company to work with . Their customer service is awful as well . In order to get your money back because of a mistake on their part it will take 6 weeks . And chances are you won’t receive it ( I never did ) . Every associate you speak to will tell you a different thing .
16:38 25 Oct 19
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.
19:31 08 Sep 19
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.
16:13 08 Sep 19
I wish Google had a rating below 1. I have lived in a community I just love that is tied into a contract with Hotwire. The service is disturbingly awful. Spotty at best. Broken at worst. There have been countless days and weekends where our entire neighborhood was getting either no internet service or less than 1Mbps download speeds. This company is a joke.
00:03 08 Sep 19
ABSOLUTELY THE WORST SERVICE EVER!!!!!
19:10 18 Jul 19
They’ll randomly show up at your door and tell you something is wrong with your box instead of making an appointment. Nothing was wrong with my internet or cable boxes. Unfortunately, I moved to an apartment that only accepts this company for internet and cable.
16:23 03 Jul 19
How this place is still in business is one of the mysteries of the universe. Horrible horrible customer service, outrageous prices, the only reason anyone stays with this company is because it’s the only service offered at an apartment complex. If you work for Hotwire..........GET A NEW JOB!!! This company will be with Blockbuster and Kodak. Gone!!!!!
20:09 24 Jun 19
John with Hotwire was completely unable to be of any assistance with my call and concerns. Not a good way to start with a new provider. The customer service team should be provided with information to assist the customers. 🙁
10:27 19 May 19
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!!
19:23 17 May 19
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??
03:52 10 May 19
This company is garbage. Screwed up the price on my bill and are too incompetent to send me a new bill with the correct price. Have spoken with no less than 10 representatives who say with conviction that they will take responsibility to resolve the issue and absolutely no follow through.Audio on cable goes out, how does that even happen?
02:43 01 May 19
Internet and cable went out in half our neighborhood. They tried saying my house is an isolated incident and someone will call me in the next 24 hours. I WORK FROM HOME! Support tech sounded poorly trained and uneducated in his field. They dont care about customer service because they trap communities in contracts and ownership of fiber optic cables. They dont care about service, people or communities! They only care about the almighty dollar. Horrible company.
12:16 27 Apr 19
Horrible! The worst!Fribrant was much better than Hotwire! Hate that they took over! Worst customer service ever! DO NOT USE THIS SERVICE!!!!!
02:40 11 Apr 19
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....

Didn’t have a choice when my city provider switched to Hotwire! Canceling today. HORRIBLE service in every aspect.
05:26 13 Mar 19
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.

WORST cable TV and internet provider I have ever experienced. Save yourself from a horrible experience and use another service company!!!
20:32 17 Feb 19
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.
01:12 10 Feb 19
Sorry sorry sorry company.

19:23 07 Jan 19
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
14:29 19 Dec 18
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.
14:23 18 Dec 18
Horrible customer service, erroneous charges, and complete incompetence. Beware of this company!
11:53 22 Oct 18
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!

Fiber cable my A**! The worst internet ever! It is down 3-5 times a week! DO NOT GET THIS 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.

Worst cable service l have ever had like there 30yrs behind unfortunately l'm stuck with them

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.

ZERO customer service. I cant believe I'm saying this but they are worse than Comcast. 4 months and still we do not have service that works properly.DO NOT USE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
21:15 12 Sep 16
Do not do business with them. Terrible!!!!!!!

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.

Terrible. They never answer the phone.
