Initially I was unsure... HostMonster's website promises so much and at such a good price, it made me wonder... However, I didn't wonder for long.  These guys delivered in a big way.  Their customer support is unparalleled. The longest I have ever had to wait for a response was 5 minutes.  If for some reason your request is complicated or challenging, they will tell you and have been right on about the amount of time it would take. Account Setup was EASY!  I was on live chat for about three minutes and immediately after, I was able to set up the account in FIVE minutes. I now have four websites hosted with HostMonster.  Two of which they migrated from a previous host for FREE, and the other two they installed Wordpress and Pligg (+3 premium modules) for FREE. As you can tell, I am a firm believer of HostMonster and really have nothing negative to say about this web hosting company.

It has been and is still a smooth ride right from the beginning with HostMonster.  All the technical support is transparent and their "Help" categories are well written and right to the point. Actually, I cannot rate their customer relations since I have never had to deal with them; everything has worked fine.  I have never received a complaint or experienced any problems about speed or access to my site.  The price is competitive and I feel I am getting a lot more than what I have paid for.  I am extremely pleased with all aspects of HostMonster!

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!
