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.
SpeakEasy, VoIP has been incredible for us; the quality of their customer service and the phone service has been nothing less than excellent. Initially, it was a little rocky thanks to SBC's equipment but my connection to the VoIP and the internet is wonderful. I've experienced almost no troubles with the line and everyone thinks it is so cool that it sounds so much like a regular phone. Static IP, phone adaptor plug-in and play, disconnect internal wiring, plug phone cord into a splitter on phone jack and all jacks are live and working 100%. Simple as that?!!! There are several companies that provide VoIP Services to businesses and residential customers but if I were to do it all over again, I would choose SpeakEasy without a doubt.
Ever since VOIP became an option, I have been using the service. I started out with Vonage but after a couple of years, I decided to switch my voip over to Speakeasy.net with whom I had my DSL (internet service provider). Speakeasy has excellent Customer Service, solid pings and latency, and very little downtime over all of these years. I must say, it is a breath of fresh air to call a company and have the CR Rep sound like they are thrilled with their job and truly want to be there and help you with any issues that you might have. This is rare and for this alone, I give Speakeasy an all 5 star rating.
