Testimonials

We have had very few incidents where we have had to contact Our-Hometown. When we did our issues were addressed immediately with a positive outcome.
Our Hometown customer service is excellent. When there is an issue, it is resolved promptly. They have helped subscribers who have encountered problems, which are usually issues involving the subscriber's device rather than an Our Hometown problem.
Our Hometown has responded to many issues we have run into. From helping us understand how to use a section of the site better, to fixing things as they come up. Just yesterday I was having a connectivity issue when trying to upload files to the Our Hometown server. Even though the issue was on my end, they helped me pinpoint that as the issue to get it corrected moving forward. And they responded very fast!
