Its actually atrocious...

Whoever tested the site from a usability point of view has no damn clue..

Oh and their inability to migrate accounts from their old "website" to their new one have me asking quesitons about their systems in general.

Probably to be responsive, a lot of responsive sites tend to be massive like this for tablets and fat-fingers.

Looks alright to me. Bit sluggish, but there's probably a reasonable amount of load due to the relaunch.

Unsure why all URLs contain /cellc/ - some basic rewrites could make this look nicer.

HFS, this is a terrible website. I just needed to look something up on it now and was shocked by how slow it was, as well as being surprised when certain clicks triggered LONG page-blanking reloads that don't change the content of the page you're on. The menu hover actions are painful, and despite ostensibly being a responsive design (including Bootstrap) and having the negative traits of it, when you shrink the page it just blacks everything out and says "Please check the mobile version of the website."

Having people recreate accounts is such a failure. Where does it end

It's been many a moon since I visited the old site, so it be unfair to compare I suppose. First impressions though leaving me feeling that all images are too big and therefore makes it feels somewhat cluttered.

If I had to compare it to the old site (from memory), dropping the dark background is a move in the right direction. Not sure I will go back in a hurry though.
