We've had great success with 8x8. Uptime is great, haven't needed customer support, and their mobile app is also nice for receiving calls when on the road right to your smartphone. Highly recommend 8x8.

From customer support to intervening sales rep to billing support from the products and services themselves, we have received the WORST service from your company. Best part? No one seems to care. The app doesn't work well at all, and definitely doesn't flow with the VOD app. We had status update issues for over a year. The "New Experience" is worse than the classic app. Assigning a severity level to your support cases doesn't make any difference with how quickly a support rep gets in touch with you, so a "system failure" is treated the same as a "minimum business impact." Support is a classic case of the left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing. We're getting rid of them as soon as we feasibly can, and I would never recommend them to anyone ever.

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.
