The expected initial response time may be delayed on US federal holidays or if you send a request outside of the Standard Support hours, it may not be addressed until the following business day.

askSpoke’s primary objective is to ensure that each support case is assigned an appropriate priority level, attentive resources, and timely progress updates to the reporting party. Every reasonable effort will be used to expedite a resolution or stable work around for reported cases, however, it's important to recognize this ability may be limited by one or more external factors.
