Here’s what customers are saying about KMTelecom

Love this company! Always very helpful & will stay on the phone (or in person) and explain things until you get it. Never make me feel rushed or that I am wasting their time.
~ Terri

Great team – love that I can always speak with a real person and they come out quickly to help us if needed! 500% better than the previous service!!!
~ Boyd

My experience was great from start to finish! I feel bad I didn’t make the switch sooner! Thank you.
~ Chris

I can’t believe how superior your service is over our former server. Everyone is upbeat, positive, and prompt, with a “we can do that” attitude. Thank you!
~ Lynn

My “EXCELLENT” rating is why I stay with KMTelecom and would not go anywhere else. One word – FABULOUS!!
~ Leesa

I wanted to provide you with the feedback of why my husband and I decided to switch from our current provider to KMTelecom for both our TV and High Speed Internet services. Simply, it was that KMTelecom is a fabulous community partner. You support our schools, organizations and community at large. You provide careers to those individuals we sit next to at church and ball games.  And although it will cost us a few additional dollars each month, we are happy to be your customer. Thank you for your support of the KM community!
~ Angie and Adam

Everyone has been EXCELLENT! So different from our previous service provider. Thankfully we have the option for KMTelecom! We definitely recommend to others. I’ve actually had 2 people from Rochester ask if you service that area!
~ Natasha

Upload speeds are over 10 times faster than our previous service provider!
~ Thomas

I have had another cable/internet provider in the past, but yours is by far the best in the area. Thank you!
~ Adam

A technician was just out and took the time to fix the issue and explain some things. Whenever a technician has been to our home they show up with a smile and are prompt. Equally nice are your customer service representatives. Everyone takes the time to listen and always with a nice voice. I just wanted to express my appreciation for KMTelecom.
~ Margaret

This was the best customer service experience I have had in a very long time. I should have made the switch to KMTelecom years ago.
