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.

Now that my Qwest phone service is finally activated, it's great. Call quality is fantastic! Reliability is pretty good - I've had one dropped call and that was talking to a cell phone, so I'm not sure who's fault that was. And now for the bad news: it took 3.5 weeks for my phone to be activated! Unbelievable, it's software, people! And I didn't even port a number over, I was assigned a number from Qwest. Honestly how hard is it to set up a new account? Luckily I hadn't cancelled my old voip service yet. Custer Service was fast and friendly, but can't really do anything about it other than to say "Phone activation can take up to 30 days." Oh, and 4 weeks after initial ordering I still can't set up my account online. Sure would like to do that... Bottom line, Qwest is offering a pretty great voip service for a fantastic price IMO. But you'll have to be patient and wait about a month for activation. Is it worth the wait?

We just began qwest one flex plan and have basically had problems the whole time.  Most have been the typical startup problems, but the worst one is the poor voice quality.  We get significant calls with only one way audio (meaning you can hear the person on the other end but they can't hear you or vice versa).  Qwest at first seemed keen to fix this, but as of late is just giving the excuse that they cannot reproduce it well enough to fix it.  Obviously this is a deal killer, as our 'C' suite is almost embarrassed to answer their phones for fear of it being an important client.  I just don't think the Qwest techs know enough about this stuff to really get a system up and working...their debugging seems to be limited to just checking the router for any errors and they know nothing about the Cisco equipment.  I would go with someone else.
