    Since Windstream took over Cavtel, I have had nothing but problems. On Friday, Oct. 23 at 4:31PM, while I was talking to a client, my phone went dead. This
    is the second time in about 3 months this has happened and the second
    time this month I have had problems with no service (Internet/DSL). The last time my phone service went dead it took 5 days to fix it. Five Days! I called customer service to report it. No-one could tell me when my phone service would be restored. I called again Sunday, same thing. I have had no communications via my email which I gave them.
    I went to Windstream Online this morning (Monday, Oct 26) and there is a
    message that it’s not available at this time. SMDH I work from home.
    This is getting on my last nerve. Windstream service and customer
    service is terrible! I had Cavtel for about 10 years with few problems.
    When I had a problem with Cavtel phone service it was fixed within 24
    hours. Not Windstream. WHEN IS MY PHONE SERVICE GOING TO BE RESTORED? I will be looking for another phone service because I can’t go through this every other month. I am also a journalist and will be writing about Windstream’s terrible service. My next step is to contact the president of this terrible company.

  • Evie Schipper

    I’ve been calling about the SLUGGISH, INTERMITTENT internet for a month, finally eight days ago I was given a fix it ticket #. Two days ago their Windstream truck was in the driveway to turn around, stop on the street doing something, then drive up the street. This went on for 4 hours. Nothing changed on our internet service. I phone today again, the Windstream said that ticket number is closed, she gave me a new number.

  • Karen Georgia

    Here in Canton Georgia for the second time in two weeks!! They should give us a discount for the inconvenience this causes! Time to switch to Comcast. I’ve been paying for high speed internet and my computer is so slow!! Tech help is a joke!! They say it must be my laptop but when I bring it over to my sisters and hook up to Comcast I have lightening speed!

    Canton, GA – Phone and internet down since approx 11am yesterday, June 27. Second time this month. (June 4) IDOTS at Windstream are sending someone to our house … even after I told them it is the same issue as June 4 and they didn’t send anyone to our home then!!!!!! ????? Wish Windstream would sell out to a company that knows something about keeping up with their equipment!!! I HATE WINDSTREAM!!!!!!!

  • Guest

    Once you finally create a problem ticket ask to speak with billing. BEWARE…they only keep records for about 2 weeks so you will need to speak with billing EVERY time your service is down!!! Windstream sucks!!!!

  • Guest

  • Guest

    Phone service is down in Shepherdsville, Ky. Why can’t windstream show an up to date of exact locations affected and estimated time of outage on the iniernet?

  • Moi

    Wake up everyday to to internet. In addition, at least 3 days per week it goes down sporadically throughout the day. ALWAYS on Friday through Sunday! Spend more time resetting the router/modem than actually being on-line. Been going through this for 4 mos or so. Gets worse every week. Done paying $45.00 per month for unreliable & problematic isp. Seeking a new provider.
