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.
In my search for a new phone provider, I stumbled across Yiptel which is the hosted (cloud) PBX / VOIP brand by CCI. My first gripe was the fact that I had to talk to a sales team member before I started a trial. Being a small business ourselves I could appreciate that, but I do prefer the fully automated trials at some of the big players where I don't have to talk to sales until I am convinced the product is right for me. I used the free trial and was glad they offered it. The service is not reliable. I had several missed calls during my testing where callers called in, but the phones never rang. The first time this happens, I always question my network on this end (are the right ports open on the firewall for example?) However after verifying all network settings with customer support, the missed calls continued. I don't know the specifics of where Yiptel runs their service, but if you look at the locations on their website (Mesa, Denver, Bozeman, etc.) and Google the street addresses, you will see they are residential buildings! Again I can appreciate these guys are not as big as Vonage and RingCentral (that's not a bad thing, smaller businesses often mean better support!), but I wonder if they are running their backend out of residences with consumer grade WAN links? It would certainly explain the missed calls. I would not recommend this service... while email is quickly becoming our dominant communication mechanism, we cannot be missing inbound calls from customers!
