I've been a happy customer of theirs since March 2005. Their uptime and connection speed have exceeded my expectations -- especially considering the price is incredibly competitive. I have been hosting a Windows server there (I know I know) and their request for reboots have been very fast.

Pros: Price, Support

Calpop is probably the best value in LA for hosting, you can check the ping times yourself. I've been there for 2+ years and never had an outage. They guarantee 100% uptime (not 99.9%) right in the contract, in writing, so it's hard to imagine they are really doing anything less. Also all contracts are month to month from what I understand, so if they were really terrible I don't think many people would stay with them.

If you can find a provider offering a comparable network speed with the same providers and the same about of bandwidth (they give you at least 10Mbps UNMETERED included with everything) for less I'd be very surprised.
They have also been around a long time, I know some who has been there for 7 years in the same location, so they are probably not going to fold as several other companies downtown have lately.

Pros: Best network in LA, good support

Cons: What are the drawbacks?

.

First of all and the major draw back of this company is lying. They gurantee 99.9% network uptime thats actually about 82%. When running a business that relies off of stable networking, this is not the company to lay your hopes in.

When they go down, expect no customer service from them, its like they take all of their phones off the hooks so it can just give everyone a busy. And within a few minuites after the problem is completely resolved, their phone systems mysteriously starts working again, and when you ask "Did you have a network problem" their response is "What the heck are you talking about? We haven't had network issues in a long time".

So there are a lot of lies comming from these guys; with very freequent outages, some small, some just very long.

Again their customer service/techs are a joke; seriously, and never lease a server from them, you'll have less problems from a 10 dollar ebayed server.
