Atlantic Broadband — Poor service - no service
This USED to be a great cable tv company...no more. For over a YEAR, many people have complained about several TV stations where the digital picture is constantly freezing up for as much as an hour or more, preventing people from watching those stations. The local tv stations has been flooded with complaints in the past year, but Atlantic Broadbank WON"T FIX THE PROBLEM! They don't offer refunds on your bill either for this lack of service. The problem both I, and other residents have in my area is this: THE CABLE TV COMPANY IS A MONOPOLY, PURE & SIMPLE.See Top 10 Worst Companies in Miami Beach, FLIN A HIGH-RISE BUILDING, WE CANNOT INSTALL TV ANTENNAS, WE CANNOT INSTALL SATELLITE DISHES, AND WE DON'T HAVE THAT NEW "FIOS" CABLE SERVICE EITHER!
I have a friend who lives on Long Island, NY, and his town has ALL of these services available for homeowners there. He got rid of the local cable tv company years ago: they still try to sell his townspeople cable tv and THEY LAUGH AT THE CABLE TV COMPANY!
In my metropolitan area (some of the highest priced real estate in the country) the damn phone company NEVER EVEN INSTALLED DSL INTERNET SERVICE (a 20 year old technology)! We are at the mercy of the cable tv company for tv AND internet service. They know this, and won't inprove the system (obviously to save money, whether the service is adequate or not). The lesson here: MONOPOLIES ARE NO GOOD FOR THE PUBLIC. When a company has a monopoly, they don't care if the customer drops dead or not. They will only take action if there is a mass uprising of the customer base, OR: somebody else moves in with the same product and better service. BEWARE!!!
