Windstream has the worst customer service I have ever seen. I wanted to give them business at my home for phone, internet and TV and after 1.5 months I am still waiting for service. They hooked up my phone and left the line lying in my back yard for 4 weeks before finally coming to cover yesterday. After covering the phone no longer works and I have to wait another week to get someone to fix which I am sure I will have to pay for service during this time. Also nobody can tell me when they can hook up my internet, I have spoken to 8 different customer service associates and 1 manager and they all give me the same B.S. response. Don't waste your time ever calling their customer service and if possible use any other company besides them. I am in the process of hooking up with another local company and will never recommend using Windstream to anyone!!
Windstream bought our local phone company, Kerrville Telephone with the blessings of our city fathers who...
Since signing up for a Windstream land phone in January 2008, I've rcvd non-stop harrassing mrktg calls 2-3 times daily. All come in identified as "Toll Free Service, " but when I call the number, a sales rep answers, "Windstream." I've exhausted almost all local options for stopping these calls, including cajoling, pleading etc with the local company here in Lincoln, NE, and begging the caller (an 18-yr-old college student named "Brad") to stop. Now I'm writing the state atty general. No my Do Not Call defense doesn't apply, since Windstream is my phone provider. If this is CEO Jeff Gardner and Exec VP and Mrktg Chief Ric Crane's idea of selling DSL to hapless customers, they need a refresher MBA course (did they really sleep thru their original classes?) Judging from the DSL service they provide, I can see why they're desperate for new customers, and why the company is repurchasing $400 million of its own shares (generally a poor use of company revenue, unless there is a highly unusual reason).
I am so upset with windstream right now. On my windstream home page for emails i had a folder called STUFF. Tonight around 7:24 pm i am typing a response to an email i had in my stuff folder. Well guess what, all at once mt email that i was working on disappears a message comes across about something not being right then zip it is gone also. So I'm thing that if it went to lala land it might turn up in my trash folder. Nope not there. So i look back in my STUFF folder yeppp you guessed it all my saved stuff is gone i look back to the trash folder nope not there. Called da tech rep what a clueless answer i get from them "its not suppose to happen we don't know where it went and we can not get it back." duhhh what happen to my stuff, all my info, pic's gone, - amm i hate windstream right now. Its stuff i can not get back.
Since Windstream has taken over CTC I have had nothing but problems. Today when I tried to connect to get my...
I recently called and asked for a quote for a highly advertised Windstream Communications Bundle Package. We could not believe the price and my husband and I jumped thinking we have just made a steal of a deal. Once installation began though, things didn't look so rosy. We didn't have the channels in the dish network part of the package that we were promised. When I called to bring this to their attention I was shocked that they then told me these agreed upon channels would now be more. I also was told that most everything promised to me had been misquoted. If you are thinking of getting a bundle package please take the time to read my article.
Windstream Bundle Packages: Buyer Beware About the Quote You Receive and Hidden Fees : Written by Layla Lair
Windstream has dominated the area so that they are the only service provider other they Time Warner Cable to provide phone and internet service. Competition is also good. The consumer needs to be able to choose the best service provider and not be stuck! First Jannell Jackson is the absolute worst sells person I have ever met. She has no clue to what she is selling nor has an idea why to meet the needs of the customer. She continues to receive huge bonuses, trips and sales person of the year only because she is the ONLY person who sells equipment for the commercial division for Windstream. She sucks!!! The fact that the people above her are clueless to the fact she has no idea as to what she is doing makes a statement by its self.
Second, customer service and accounts payable department are horrible. Over the last several months we have been over charged for our service by about $1,500.00 and even though we have tried numerous times to resolve the issue, we continue to receive bills with the same fees and no resolution. To top that, Windstream has now cut off service for our business fax line. Nice!!!
I though Windstream was governed by the utilities commission. That is my next step to take action against this company. Someone needs to step in a shut this company down.
My telephone service was disconnected May 16 2007, and my internet disconnected June 19. I was billed for telephone service for 2 months after my service was disconnected and internet for a month after it was disconnected.
I called their customer service and they insisted I give them a debit card number to "make it right" or they would turn me over to collections.
When I pointed out, that according to the customer service reps OWN records that he pulled up, I got no service and was over charged by almost 200 dollars, he argued with me and said I OWED them and would pay, or be turned over to collections.
I kept my bills that show I was charged after disconnect. And then, after they charged me that extra month internet, they also charged me a 100 dollar modem fee because I didn't keep internet for a year. Well, they charged me for a year of internet service, so why the fee for not having it a year?...why do they get to have it both ways?
Consumers have NO rights with companies like this and it is not fair.
Windstream continues to service me with very slow dsl. Sure, I have inquired about this problem. You get a "cookie-cutter" response from some so called "technical support". My neighbor suffering from the same problem, has not only repeatedly contacted Windstream but has sent a letter to executives. Windstream response to the problem is that "we are working on it". Of course, there is still no results. It is amazing that my dsl is actually slower that the dial-up that had before.
Since windstream bought valor (our previous provider), e-mail service has been on a steady decline. Beginning in Sept. 06, my messages to one recipient started to be blocked every so often. Beginning in February, all messages were blocked. After many calls to windstream techs, all I got was that some spammer was using their ISP, that it had to go to Australia (?!) to be fixed, blah, blah, blah. I was persistent, and earlier this month, March, a tech actually suggested that I open a g-mail account. Why should I have to change my e-mail address, inform my recipients, change all my e-bay, business passwords because THEY cannot provide a service? I have contacted the Consumer Protection Agency and have filled out a complaint. If this doesn't do it, I'm not stopping there.
I AM creative, and I WILL receive the service I pay for.
