Cricket Broadband / false advertisment/ripoff

1 lexington ky, KY, United States Review updated:

Cricket claims to have broadband speeds on their blazing fast 3g network. The speeds are anything but blazing fast. Youtube doesnt even load, page tranfers are not as fast they should be, give their advertisement. I was overcharged on the sales tax and the activation fee. I bought the modem and called the next day to ask if i could bring it back, they said i could but said the activation charges was non-refundable. I am going to bug the crap out of their customer service to try to get it back. If i don't get it back, i am out 30 bucks.

It is time that people take a stand against these types of rip offs. I would encourage everyone on here that has been ripped off by cricket to report them to the federal trade commission, the BBB, and let them know.

bottom line CRICKET BROADBAND SUCKS

    Their customer service -when you can get a real person- is atrocious ! Not only are they condescending, Ive been told something different by every single person in there !!! I was screwed out of a rebate, offered a 25 dollar discount- didnt get it, and the dormant [censor] started a month ago for me, but I had no trouble the first several months... Im ready to find new service basedd off the customer service alone !
