    Walter,

    Nobody is silent because of the 'facts' people are silent because they are just tired of seeing drama from you, take it off the forums.

    Actually neither. I am just waiting on a response from Caro now. They seemed to suggest that it was a payment issue. If that is not the case then what was the issue?
    Can't we all just get along

    I'm interested in knowing as well, considering we were considering placing a large order with them. Hopefully this will all turn out okay.

    I am on 2 different servers at Caro through an Aussie company and have been for 2 years. The service, hardware and uptime has always been excellent.

    Yep, I agree with 1boss1,

    We've been caro, I Strongly suggest them. They've been excellent. Whether its support or billing or sales it dosent matter, but they are really good.

    caro's sales rep, Robert has been very helpful. I'd say if you're looking to go with them, I'd say go with them. Caro is one of the best companies i've seen for people who care about their business.

    I think it was caro's opinion that the OP's refusal to pay for technicians' time working on his equipment. As a result, they suspended the account for non-payment. I find it unusual they suspended the account prior to the end of the paid period.

    There is a big difference between "Refusal to Pay" and "Disputing Invoice Balances".

    There was never any refusal to pay. Ever!! And the hosting bill was paid in full in order to allow ample time for negotiating a solution.

    I agree with two previous posters in that Caro is very good in certain areas. And they have some excellent people working there.

    However, they made some mistakes that cost everyone and created a LOSE/LOSE outcome.

    And if you notice, they are now being very silent here.

    i don't know TeleSouthNet but after more then 1 year dealing with caro i would advice everyone to run a way of them
    bad support
    bad network
    every other week your server is down as their network under attack
    they promise to provide 2hr hardware change and you will end up with 24hr
    sales are great when they want you as a customer after you get the server they don't care what you want
    every month we have power off as the power supply is broken
    every day you will find your self in new story with them they even reload your server with out request as the server has kernel panic they don't care about your data at the end of the month the open their mouth to get money
    this month i would say bye bye caro no more westing money with kids

    Ok Adam, Tell me what you think of this (and I will be posting it all in my own thread)..

    Your Sales rep comes to you pressuring you to pick 15 servers that you think you can sell in 1 month, for each of them you get 15 for free.. Low and behold, they charge you for the 15 initial servers that you made VERY clear to have them in stand by.. Then the bill comes back around and they charge you for all 30.

    What about the so called DDOS Protection? Why would an invoice for DDOS Overages stay on the account for over 2 months?

    What about transferring servers OUT OF YOUR ACCOUNT INTO A DIFFERENT ACCOUNT WITH NO AUTHORIZATION FOR IT?!?

    What about Caro turning off EVERY ONE OF YOUR SERVERS (PAID UP TO DATE SERVERS)?

    I am SOO GLAD I am not the only one with Caro's problem of failure to fix / correct invoices.. It takes them a month (on the good side) to fix an invoice and before its fix they complain about me not paying them..

    It would appear that the people from Caro are being very quiet again. And this time their defenders are as well. I wonder why.

    Although my experiences with Caro hasnt been 100% perfect (who's are anyways?), I can say that when I needed to get things done, they got it done.

    Although, I have dropped the ball a few times on our account, Caro has bent over backwards several times to help us out and for that I am very thankful for.

    I do apologize to both Caro for the above 2 posts. They were uncalled for and were out of a short burst of anger. Hopefully, they can forgive me for it.

    Exactly Echelon, something of the things being thrown around on this topic is just childish and really doesn't really deserve a reply.

    Quiet

    The dignified response is that your company was disconnected for lack of payment. You were aware of the deadline and missed the payment. There is nothing else to be said. Services are not free.

    Caro is being "quieter" because they're handling this situation professionally. While I do agree that forums are a great place for discussions, private business interactions are better off being dealt on a more personal level.

    I have a server with caro for the last 7 months or so, and I couldnít say one bad thing about them theyíre support team is fast and polite, and straight to the point, they donít hide anything, if anything they make everything clear to you, network has been great never any downtime ever, couldnít ask for any better service than I am getting so I decided to leave my option on them in this thread I donít know why other customers, whom are having problems with them are leaving statements here though

    Hey Nick,

    You evidentially missed out on the internal power outage that lasted 4 hours in DC 3 several months ago. Send me your email address and and I can forward to you the email notice describing it that came from Caro staff. No down time?? Nice flowery post, but sorry, try again.

    The outage described was an internal outage that had no effect on the managed hosting division, it only effected some co-location customers. Clearly you refuse to accept the understanding that we are legally and staffed as two different companies.

    I don’t need or want an email from you, I didn’t have any downtime, so it doesn’t matter if you email me it, or not, because I don’t care, because I know, that I didn’t have any downtime at all BFD "Big Freekin Deal?" but either way i didn't have downtime. Shame on you.

    If it wasnt for the complete hardware upgrade done on my Caro server recently, the uptime would be around the 500 day mark.

    Hardly the sign of a company plagued with problems.
