I purchased the rock space ac 1200 dual band WiFi repeater. My WiFi was spotty in my house and this cured the problem. I watch Hulu and before this product Hulu would buffer all the time. Now it only buffers for a few seconds... More in the beginning then all is perfect. Wish I knew about this last year. Less
Great support!

I have used their product about 3 years. And I always have problem and silly mistake like the domain was expired and I forgot to renew...cuz I am a layman. Fortunately they provide awesome assistance and technical support. Absolutely recommended.

horrible customer service and a ripoff

This place overcharged me for years. When i asked for a discount they screwed me on that when i went with another hosting company they kept charging me. Then when they were suppose to credit my credit card they would would on... More ly credit my closed account--horrible people to work with. Cant understand any of them. Run from Rackspace. Less

The A2 FTP server is extremly slow for any user from any place in the world. Still A2 claims everything is fine and refuses to do anything about it. I never ever got such horrible support
