ISP with the best support?

So I am currently with Afrihost. Their support is so bad that I going to move. Sitting on the phone in a queue for 44 minutes, no emails answered for over a week including their call backs.

I have been trying to get my fibre activated but Openserver/Afrihost messed something up during the initial activation. This was several weeks ago. Each time I speak to them I get a different reason for the problem. The only way to get hold of Afrhost is to sit on their support line for +/-30-40min in a queue.

I used to champion them in the early days. Great competent support. Times have changed.

I want an ISP that I can get hold of someone within a reasonable amount of time. When I have a problem, deal with one person rather than the lucky packet Afrihost spews up.

So my question is, from a pure support point of view, which ISP do you reckon has the best support?

I had the same issue with Afrihost. My issues when right up to the CEO and it was just Terrible service.
Moved over to Mweb a few months back and its been great thus far.

The best customer service probably lies with Crystal Web. Their live chat support hours and response times are pretty nuts. But I just left them - support alone does nothing for your connection. I'm on Cool Ideas from today and their support is okay.

You'll need more feedback here about the all-round value of Vox, Axxess, Web Africa etc to pick out the best option for your next ISP.

Mweb is one of the worst options for ISP.
