DPN Data Packet Networks Sucks

I wanted to alert you all to a problem I have been having with Data
Packet Networks,aka DPN, aka BriNet Networks.

I wish I had checked with the florida Better Business Bureau before I
decided to host my site on Datapacket.net. It turns out that Data
Packet Networks has an unsatisfactory standing with the BBB. There is
also a slew of complaints about them on sites such as DSL Reports, and
numerous flames and complaints here on UseNet.

Most of the complaints allege the same sorts of things: arbitrarily
deleting customer accounts, frequent downtime, unresponsive and/or
rude "customer service."

Some of the reviews even condemn Data Packet Networks in the harshest
of terms, using phrases like "A Scam," "Who are they fooling?", and
"Avoid Datapacket.net."

I've collected much of this information on a web site that they have
inspired me to created:
http://www.datapacketsucks.com

Here I chronicle my experience with Mr. Brian William Bennett and his
operation. I have links to reviews and his Better Business Bureau
report. I've also created a Yahoo group
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/datapacketsucks

Oh, and of course there is a guest book.

You are welcome to join the group or post to the guest book to
commiserate about your Data Packet experiences.

Here is the contact Info for Data Packet Networks (DPN):

I wanted to update the group on the assholes at Data Packet Networks.

After I complained about their alleged unfair and deceptive practices,
they deleted another unrelated account I was hosting with them,
apparently purely out of retaliation.

Also, I wanted to make a correction. Most of the bad reviews of DPN
on the web are not on DSL Reports, but on HotPulse.com.

I have also since filed reports with the Better Business Burearu,
Flordida State Attorney General, and the Federal Trade Commission, and
probably others that I do not recall at the moment.

Like I told Mr. Bennett, I would have been happy to work with him, but
if he wants a war, he's got one. Mr. Bennett, here is your war.
Congratulations.

As always, more details are at www.datapacketsucks.com
Anyone who wishes is welcome to mirror the site.

I'd also be skeptical of the reviews you see on most of the web sites
that allow people to review web hosting companies. So far, HotPulse
is the only one that has accepted and published my review of Data
Packet Networks. They have a long list of anti-DataPacket reviews
there. God bless HotPulse.

I too am having problems with Datapackets because of its down time, horrible customer service and now there is a billing problem where Brian Bennett who lives in washington State phone number; 206-888-4402

do a reverse directory and you'll have his home address on Whidby Island in Seattle

I have more information on this guy from his past and I'm getting ready to file a formal complain and civil suite against him alledging sabotage and illegal billing procatices.

Is a complete lost of money and maybe clients. I used theirs services for 2 months, slowly moving some of my webdesign clients and suddly I start receive a lot calls and ticket problems about websites down and emails issues. So I realize was true and the services was down almost 2 hours every day, also, each day was a different problem their try to excuse. Anyway, I moved out. I don´t recommend also, their support lie about little stuffs like they are lease for some jobs...
Also they never answer that Phone showing in PAYPAL payments. Their phone is: 206-888-4402 NOT GOOD AT ALL!

The lies is that you can host unlimited websites, but they start set your websites to respond slowly or is they server can not handle that.., I´m not sure but the support guy tells me that I can host just websites of my own company even not reselling.

Another problem I found is even using a Reseller Plan you will not have control in parts as a Reseller you should have like Enable or Disable AntiSPAM on your domains, little things like that you have to ask.

I lost 2 clients because of their bad services and time down. So it´s what it´s...

Regards
Mark
