    That is atrocious customer service.  I recently left servage because of hteir poor quality cusomter care, I then moved over to hostgator. Those guys will not only help me with server issues, but also technical website issues, I cn say hands down that if they keep up this quality of care I am not going to leave them, and will always recommend them.

      they are my ISP, and I really don't have choice - at least it works. The only other choice in the area besides going totally wireless is Verizon, and i have a hub on why I never ever again deal with them LOL.
