ERF WIRELESS! We signed up for ERF Wireless last week, and the service is phenomenal! Literally, our speeds are at least 10x faster than Cobalt up and down! And are CONSTANT. No fluctuations. No BS. The ERF basic package is 768 kbps @ around $50-60, and the faster package which I got is 1.5 MB down/768 kbps up MINIMUM 🙂 AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME!
We have had ERF Wireless for over a week now. NO OUTAGES, not even a single BLIP. Speeds have been blazing. Finally, I’ve been able to play online games again, upload and download large files, and at long last, STREAM MOVIES! Netflix works great, usually giving 2 bars, sometimes 3, sometimes 1, but not even a single rebuffer after watching about 15 hrs of movies so far.
YOUTUBE! By ditching Cobalt and getting ERF Wireless, we can finally watch Youtube videos without constant pauses – imagine that!
And let me tell you, the customer service has been great so far. The installation guys drove all the way out from League City, and spent an extra amount of time making sure our system worked and they tried several different spots until they got the absolute best signal from their tower to us. Incidentally, their tower is located in Cat Spring. We have a clear line of sight to it and the distance is around 8 or 10 miles. The install guys were very informed and professional, its such a contrast to Cobalt. It was funny, as soon as I mentioned that we currently had Cobalt to them, they rolled their eyes and gave us the “oh dude, we feel your pain” look.
Anyway, I could go on forever, but the summary is… call ERF Wireless and see if they can reach your home.
You WILL NOT REGRET IT if you can switch from Cobalt… ERF blows them away!
Also, if you have been reading this blog over the past year and have had similar experiences with Cobalt, please report them to the Better Business Bureau and your local Chamber of Commerce.
