I have had the best experience with Host Gator, particularly with their customer service... 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and I have never waited more than two minutes for a live operator. I currently have a Reseller Account and a VPS Account, and both are fabulous. Host Gator's live chat is brilliant;  Kudos to you Host Gator!!!!  I plan on hosting with you exclusively.  GREAT STUFF!!!

I previously had my site with a very large hosting firm (whose name I will not reveal) and had very negative experiences with them.  System outages, slow response to technical problems, slow server speed etc.  I finally had it and began searching for a new company to transfer to.  I was extremely nervous and could not afford to lose any more business but I finally found Host Gator and was very impressed with what I saw.  The move went super smooth for me and the team at Gost Gators went above and beyond in helping me transfer my site over to their servers.  On top of that, the speed is much better than with my old host.  I needed a special request- hosting a logo securely for my PayPal checkout... this was no problem for Host Gator.  I want to say a big thank you to Jesse and everyone at the Host Gator team.  They have been incredibly helpful and have gone above and beyone the call of duty in helping me transfer my domain over to Host Gator. Needless to say, I think the entire team at Host Gator is phenomenal when it comes to customer service.  I would highly recommend anyone considering hosting to go with them.

I have an Ooma Telo with a residential line and an office line. Voice quality is good, and the service has been reliable. However, the customer service is poor. I recently purchased from Ooma a WiFi/Bluetooth adapter to connect my Telo wirelessly. The instructions have a link to click to set up, however the link was broken. I tried the chat service twice but no luck. Then I went to the phone lines. No luck with the first level of customer support and no luck with the second level of support. The third level of customer support was supposed to call back Tuesday. I waited four days but no call back. I called back in. The third level referred me to the fourth level which was supposed to be engineering. After three hours, the third level called back (customers can't speak to engineering). The engineer had solve the problem: my home network name had "spaces" in it!!! What does this indicate? Poor website instructions, poor paper instructions with the product, poorly informed product support at levels one, two, and three, and poor internal communications from engineering. Eric B. Stang, the Ooma CEO, received 2.7 million dollars in total compensation last year. For this level of performance, I'd say he was overpaid by about 2.6 million dollars.

Ooma quoted me a monthly price for their home service of only taxes and fees once I bought the actual device to get things up and running. The device is a one time charge of $99.00 Since purchasing the device/unit, I have been charged over $10 per month when I was told I would be charged only taxes and fees per month. Those taxes and fees come in at right under $5.00 per month, yet I'm being charged over $10 per month. Ooma has not been helpful at all in getting this issue worked out. Now, I'm stuck with a $99.99 device and charges of double what I was quoted per month. Do not use Ooma. Terrible company. Horrible customer service. Impossible to get a hold of and also rude once you do! Stay away!
