"Mid-Market" 8x8 customer since 2012 with 34 lines and 10 toll free numbers. I was hired in 2013. From the moment I was hired I was getting complaints about dropped calls, spotty call quality, and issues with the softphones. After cleaning up the network, I came to realize it wasn't us (or our 500Mbps DIA connection) it was 8x8. Constantly have had problems over the past five years. If you need support, expect long hold times (30 minutes +) and to have to start running the gauntlet at the base level of support. If, you can get the person on the other end to understand that you're in a higher tier of support, expect more hold time. It's incredibly frustrating considering hosted PBX/VOIP services are supposed to save you time and make your life easier. I'm constantly having to call 8x8 support due to not being able to call certain numbers. Their softphone app constantly crashes or interferes with other programs like webex, chrome/firefox, VNC, Lync, Skype, Hipchat, etc. and often causes issues with computer sound (running Dell optiplex and XPS in this office) forcing a reboot to restore sound levels. The "meetings" part of the softphone app is a disaster. It's so bad we just ended up using gotomeeting instead. The conference lines kept having a problem where if you called in with an iPhone people could hear you but you couldn't hear anyone else. Billing is absolute nonsense. My company's accounting team and IT got together with 8x8 trying to determine what we were being billed for and no one at 8x8 could actually tell us. it's been 6 weeks and we're still waiting on an answer. This company has been an absolute nightmare to work with. If you decide to be brave and use them, you'll regret it. Here's an image of their softphone desktop app (and the amount of time I've been on hold with their support team for yet another number that can't be dialed. You'd think calling from Austin to Anaheim would be easy, huh?) http://imagehost.phoenix-nest.com/?di=6154948616415
8x8 just gets the job done for us. A good phone system is one you don't have to think about much. It has all the features we need, and works well with our remote team on their smartphones. Haven't experienced any down time or customer service issues either.
Last year I signed a three years contract with Telepacific to provide phone lines and internet service to our 4 locations. The internet speed is very slow, they promise a speed and they provide different one. Also I did not get listing in the yellow pages as promised. The first 6 months the billing was accurate, after that they started adding to the bill many fees, and whenever I dispute them they refuse to give me the credit. My monthly bill should be $980.00 now it’s up to $1223.78. In May/2013 I called them to question their long distance rates to Switzerland and Jordan, I was told its 6 cents a minutes, and even I repeated the question many times to the customer service rep who insisted it is 6 cents. That is why I made the calls. When I received the bill it was .85 cents a minute, I disputed it and they claim they have no notes on the account regarding Jordan rate. Stay away from that company, they have a very slow internet speed and a lousy customer service, they will be nice until you sign a contract after that they will provide the worst customer service and they have stupid representatives who tricks you by giving you non existing rates to collect more money.
Telepacific is a great choice! This year I was given the task of installing a T1 line. I spoke with AT&T and was disappointed with their service. I found Telepacific and they were on site within a few days with a reasonable quote. We decided to go with them and it has been a good decision so far. Their service people are friendly and competent. Early on, we had a breakdown. It was resolved in a few hours with new equipment (I was told) installed off site somewhere. Since then, there have been no problems. Their customer service is easy to reach and called with updates during the installation.
