Depends on the host ... I've gone with two so far in Panama (Central America) 
where they are Windows/Linux shops, and the support I've had from both places 
were exemplary ... some of the staff picks it up very quickly, others you have 
to walk through a bit more, but in all cases, I've been most happy with the 
support I've received from a "non-FreeBS host" ...

Our newer servers now have built in remote consoles, so my need for someone to 
play with the OS itself has significantly drop'd, except for the older servers 
... for the newer ones, its mostly 'hardware related' ...
