I've been hearing for a while how good 24/7 hosting is and their support service is really good and fast/effective...

Are those recommendations actually true?

I've emailed them yesterday - was told estimated response time 59 mins...so ok i'll wait...
today - no response - so emailed them again and was told estimated response time 19mins...

still nothing, so ringing them now - been on hold 59 minutes so far?

Is this normal...or am i just getting in touch at a bad time for them?

Personally, Think you have answered your own question by what you wrote relating to times etc and whats advertised.

Yes but I am wondering if its just a blip in their system? if everyone else has experienced pretty good service? or if its a continuous thing that happens with them... as I'm not worried if it happens now and again but if it happens like this all the time then obviously they're not a good team to host with...

I've recently moved all my customers domains to another host as 24/7 support was pretty bad.
Sometimes they were OK but not when I really needed the support. :)

Ok well I guess 24/7 hosting is out - will go find someone else

I have had good experiences with them. If you stay on the line after you have emailed them they usually get back to you pretty quickly.

What problem do you have with your hosted web site?
