COMPORIUM, honest review..... – Comporium Communications, I worked for them for over ten years and all but 1 year I was not a subscriber to anything except for internet. The only reason I subscribed to that was the lack of anything else. Most of the department I was working in had DIRECTV for TV, no home phones.... that in itself speaks volumes. I recently visited my home town and asked my parents about their internet and they told me that they have Comcast, the 2nd tier data package and it cost $29/month, no taxes on internet usage. The speeds were 15Mbp's up/5Mbp's down. That is without a contract, with the contract it is $20/month. The top tier was 75Mb/20Mb down and it was $70/month. The prices here are really unfair and they said that they charge that because even though they are considered "Rural" they are in the Charlotte and Columbia price ranges. The company was a good place to work, but not anymore. The employee's don’t even get a discount on the service, its like 75% on basic cable and 15-20% off everything else. Talk about greed.
I wish you could rate with ZERO STARS – Can anyone say monopoly? Prices are WAY to high. Customer service is abysmal. I inquired about my cable bill on several occasions and was never told that I had been getting charged for STARZ for like six months until my third call. I tried to get my long distance switched over to another carrier and thought this was the case, until a month later and I had an ENORMOMOUS bill from them. I am presently on my FOURTH call to try and get this rectified. Mind you that on my third call I was assured that my long distance would work - not the case.
Overall stay as far away from this organization as you can, if possible; like I said before, they are monopolizing the area and basically charge whatever they want while leaning you over the proverbial barrel
Terrible – Even though you probably have no choice in internet providers if youre looking at Comporium as an option, don't go into the deal thinking you're actually getting what you pay for. Comporium is barely allowed to call itsself high speed. Maybe a few years ago they were up to par, but they haven't exactly, lets say, progressed with technology. If you take a simple internet speed test with Comporium youll find that plenty of other Internet Providers around the country provide much faster internet for the same price. Also, theyre pretty terrible at maintenance too. Any time theres a lightning storm, your cable and internet is liable to go out. But, of course you can't really do anything about it because any time another Internet Provider wants to come to town, Comporium pays them to keep out. And they're also nowhere near in danger of a lawsuit because Rock Hill is considered "rural" enough to loosen some monopoly laws. So thats Comporium in a nutshell. If you ever want to be connected through cable internet in Rock Hill, you are going to have to pay to be screwed and you can't do anything about it.
-And on a sidenote, they hire a lot of people in Rock Hill, so you'll see a load of reviews that are good, because either that person works there or has a family member that works there.
...Yeah, theyre definitely not an honest company.
RUN RUN RUN...DO NOT GET THIS SERVICE EVER!!! – This is the worse cable company in the world, with also the worst customer service to follow... we diffently need other choices.. PRICES ARE TOO HIGH...WE NEED COMPETITION!!!!!! WHAT THE HECK IS COMPORIUM ANYWAY.

Price Gouging - horrible customer service – Comporium is a JOKE! It is the ONLY provider in this area, and their prices are WAY to high! Stop and a take a look at dish network or something else before getting involved. I have had comporium for a year and have their basice for $9.95, yet my bill is alomost $20 a month due to JUST TAXES! Talk about BS! Not to mention my picture quality is TERRIBLE and I have brand new TV's! To upgrade for basic plus you have to shell out more than $60.00 a month for some decent chanels. REDICULOUS! I switched to Dish network, get amazing customer service, awesome picture and over 200 chanels for $24 a month! And that includes all of the "taxes". Plus they installed it for free, no charge for the dish or the DVR!!! I can't wait for another company to move in to this area and give crappy comporium a run for their money! Every bill I received from them had a shut off notice, yet I was NEVER late on my payments, and when I called to let them know they were TOTALLY clueless about it! Wake up you FOOLS! Let's consider the economy!! You're prices are STUPID!
