We've been trying to get 8x8 to fix a chronic problem with our recorded calls getting randomly lost or corrupted. We call and email them daily and get little to no response. The typical response is "that department is very busy with other problems, we'll get to yours when we get to it." They say that the problem gets escalated to a higher tier but we still haven't gotten a response and it's been over a week now. I've called our rep Aldrich and he says that he's done all that he can and I've talked to Donovan who is apparently the head of the tech department and he is the one that told me that they'll get to our calls when they get to them. Very unresponsive when it comes to resolving issues.

After 12 months of frustration, we have moved away from 8X8. The issue was never the suite of features. It was customer service for a persistent problem. The basic requirement for a telephone system is that it allows me to make and receive calls. For 12 months, we were unable to receive call from many local people. I was told that it was not the fault of 8X8 and to contact our old provider, Verizon. Verizon said they had ported the number and that was all they could do. We have switched to 3CX. Within 2 days, the local contact was able to trace and resolve the problem. Anyone can now call. My experience shows that 8X8 is not willing to help solve a serious problem. I should also add that they offered no compensation for this issue. I cannot recommend 8x8.

As IT Manager for a Software Company in Mississippi, I worked with my peers to greatly research VOIP providers in the area to upgrade our PBX system. Going to other service providers the cost would be outrageous for the same service or the other providers would fall short on quality and not take responsibility for the whole system. Earthlink came in with a wonderful complete all-in-one solution to our needs at a great price. We get a great QoS with Earthlink as the backbone is their the ISP connection that they service, thus by not having a third-party there is not fingerpointing. Moveover, Earthlink also installs and maintains POE switches, router, the VLAN for the phones the UPS and even has local service technicians for all points of the setup to provide wonderful customer service. We have an onsite generator which the POE Switches plug into, thus even during a power-outage we have working phones and great phone quality --- which is key for our software support department. Moreover, we get the many benefits of VOIP technology which is the present and extended future of unified communication.
