I joined SpeedySparrow in mid-may 2011. Today, I do not regret that decision.
When I was looking for a web host, I was skeptical. I read TONS and TONS of horror stories about other companies. However, I read many positive reviews on the WHT community. I went to their site and hopped onto live chat.
You know how there are horror stories about bad support and service from other big name hosts. Well, SpeedySparrow responds to a "Medium" priority ticket in just a few hours. If your issue is more critical and you put it at high or critical, you will get a very, very fast reponse -- typically under an hour. I also feel that I should mention how respectful and seriously they take customer reports. They don't try to convince you that is is your fault -- they check on everything to try and fix it. And they always have in my experience.
SpeedySparrow definitely gives you value for the money. $3.95 a month for this quality of service gives you more than enough to run a small-medium sized site.
They use the industry leading cPanel site control panel, along with other technologies like CloudLinux, Litespeed Web Server (which is Apache interchangeable, but FASTER)

While this may sound like I am an employee advertising, I am not. I run my own site... Proudly hosted by SpeedySparrow.
