This is the worst customer experience possible. This company is continually breaking their own system... they no more than stabilize it and they roll out another update that breaks it all over again. The best part is trying to work through their customer supports distinct language barrier only to sit on hold for hours. If your company needs reliability in it's phone system, do NOT select 8x8.

This company is by FAR the worst company I have ever dealt with. Their customer service is poorly trained, they promise features that don't exist, its impossible to reach them for help, they try to beg you to stay on as a customer so you don't cancel but then make it IMPOSSIBLE to cancel their services. I will never ever recommend this company to anyone. I can't believe I stuck along as long as I did. For a telecommunications company, they are AWFUL at communicating, being transparent, and being an actual human being for how crappy of a customer experience they provide for their "valued clients". TURN AWAY DO NOT CONSIDER THIS COMPANY FOR YOUR BUSINESS NEEDS.

We started working with IDT in 2016. They tout serving over 32 billion minutes annually and 4 route divisions to choose from. The route divisions are irrelevant however, here I will explain why: The level of service/quality you *actually* receive depends on how greedy your Account Manager is, and the genie behind the curtain that changes up the routes to accommodate their desired margins. The end result of course is route instability and frequent calls to your support desk from angry customers reporting issues ranging from False Answer Service to calls not completing to legitimate destinations and wondering why they are paying for Platinum service only to receive problems typically associated with Silver-grade routes. With IDT we'd literally pass weeks at a time without issues, and suddenly a range of issues with many different destinations arise at the same time. We submit the ticket and the issue would eventually be resolved, but only after waiting > 24 hours for a response. In the IDT Express portal you are able to select which routing division, but in the end IDT simply does not honor your selection, and will route your traffic over the routes they choose behind the scene. It's really a pointless set up they offer. Go with Tata, NTT or BT if your customers' satisfaction is paramount.
