UPDATE: Rise has refunded my service fee; I am therefore considering this matter resolved.

I tried to be a Rise Broadband customer – I lasted all of one day!This company's treatment of customers is unbelievable.
My installer was two hours late, he had trouble getting signal so the install took nearly four hours, he did a very messy installation with very unsightly boxes and cabling all over one corner of my living room, and he left a large puddle of urine on my bathroom floor. The next day, I had trouble connecting and called tech support, who could not tell me what the trouble was or how to correct it, except that they suspected I had a weak signal. I told them I needed the Internet service up and running, and that I was available that day, but not for the rest of the week. I was told they would get someone out “as soon as possible.” Later that day, when no one had contacted me, I called back, to find that tech support had scheduled a service call for the 20th – four days in the future, and a day I had specifically told them I was NOT available.
Frustrated beyond all endurance, I told them I wanted to cancel and that they should come pick up their equipment. Do you think this was the end of the hassle? It was not – they told me that it would be three to six weeks refunding the month's service charges I'd paid in advance. I asked for the corporate number, and was told, “We don't have that information.” (It's on the Internet).
To sum up, this company's service was very problematic and created a lot of problems for me.
I cannot recommend them to anyone.
