I had their cable and internet. I had problems with both. I tried and tried to call and talk to someone, but no one would ever call me back. I finally switched to Frontier and Dish Network. After I disconnected Mr. King finally gave me a call. Like he could help me then? I didn't even have their service anymore! I wouldn't suggest that company to anyone!

I am considering doing business with Vince King, and i would really appreciate anything , good or bad, that might be helpful.
These posts don't sound very promising . Has anyone else had personal dealings with Vince King?

I have spirit phone, internet and cable and they all 3 suck. Every day around 8:30 am the cable starts cutting in and out. I timed it once and in 1 min. it cut out 11 times. When I call them they always say they are aware of the problem and are working on the lines. One guy told me that I was the only one that seem to be having trouble.
Thanks to this link I know what I need to do.

I would love to hear your experiences .
It sounds like Mr. King takes advantage of everyone , and gets away with it because his "businessman image" hides his tatics .
I hope that you are happier in your new position .

All the providers have crappy bandwidth in the county. Most of the terminals only carry T1 lines, as most of them haven't been upgraded since 2002. Thus it is literally impossible for them to increase bandwidth in some areas because they haven't upgraded their own infrastructure. Just remember it could be worse. Only 18 years ago we had to log onto Compuserve using a long distance call to Oak Ridge just to check our email, remember that anyone? Fun times.

Vince suffers from shortman syndrome, and very small manhoodsyndrome. He tries to compensate with his charity donations making people feel as though he cares when the fact is he is SCAMMING just like his mother company in NASHVILLE scams from the low income less fortunate. When confronted he will start yelling and screaming. I spoke with him about his business practice when I thought of a joint venture with him, he laughed and said the dumb hillbillies in this area didnt have a choice but to like it. He lives in a high dollar home, drives high dollar german cars, and has friends high up in the government, he says.
Well Im a good old boy and we dont have to tollerate VINCE KING or spirit. CANCEL and watch with an antenna if you must.

I called so many times,and after 6 months,I was told "We don't know for sure when it will be fixed"
My picture was so snowy, I got headaches trying to watch. I asked just give me an estimate..A day,week,month 6 months. "I am sorry we just have no idea when we can fix it" Sooooooooooooooo I fixed it and switched to Dish which I am very happy with.
I have never had such bad service with anyone.

Finally had to switch our service to Frontier. Spirit was constantly freezing our account and said we were spamming. We never found a virus on any of our computers. Spirit sucks! We lost service about 4 or 5 times a month.

This company is a joke. The internet is intermitent at best and now it has been out for 3 days straight with no (honest) word of when it will be back on. We were told it would be back on at noon today....its now 6:00pm and we're still twiddling our thumbs.. We have had problems in the past they have said they will " send some one out". Two months later they showed up. Ridiculous.
DON"T GET SPIRIT BROADBAND. Save yourself time and money

Spirit is terrible in every way. My cable has been out 3 days so far. They don't know when it will be back up. It would take days to express how much trouble it is. Please don't put yourself through this.

They just got caught pirating directv signals and had half their channels shut down.
At this point I think fixing your internet is probably the least of their worries.
