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
A few issues
Francoise Bencke,

The platform is great. However, there is an issue with my cdn and my website and after 48 hours it still has not been resolved. I am aware that I have a standard support package but this should be part of the package as it is... More from their end. One other issue which I was not aware when I decided to go with them is that they are using a late version of PHP. Not great for speed. You have to be on the next suppôt level, to be upgraded at a cost of £100 support for at least 6 months. Not happy right now. Less

NEVER AGAIN USING RACKSPACE
Marcos D.,
2.0
After the price increase on my billing, I decided to close out my account. Turns out they charged me for the entire month that took them to close out my account, and disabled me from talking to anyone about my account. Now it... More s under collection, and they wont talk to me about it nor transfer to me to anyone but the first person I call. I have been using them for over 10 years, I am never again using RackSpace nor referring them to anyone ever again. Less

I could not describe a more useless understanding that this company members have of Western customers and practises.
If you want our bucks give us the service we require.
Tired of this nomadic tax havean located and low cos... More t labors greedy business model.
Technically they are just a reseller.
