Clark Howard: The #1 Internet Provider in America

With a score of 72, Verizon Fios regains the top spot in the latest report from the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI). T-Mobile came in second place and AT&T, which was #1 in the last survey, drops to #3 place.

*When it comes to getting cheap internet, there are some things you should do before signing up with a new service provider.

Explore Your Options: Compare Prices and Terms

Even if you have limited internet options, there are still ways to save.

Start by searching for offers from competitors and call your existing

provider to see if it can match the deal.

Make sure you have your latest bill handy, so you know exactly what

you’re paying and can identify a real deal.

Note: According to the latest report from the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI), customer satisfaction with (almost all) internet service providers (ISPs) has fallen slightly in this latest report.

Tips: Keeping Pets Safe this Summer

Provide plenty of water

Pets need ‘hydration’ just like we (humans) do.

 

Beware of HOT pavement

Use the palm of your hand to check pavement temperatures before walking your pet!  

 

Don’t leave your pet in the car

Just as with children, leaving a pet in the car for even a few minutes can cause it to have heat stroke. BTW: Even on a 70-degree day, a car – in direct sunlight – can heat up to 100 degrees within minutes.
