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.
If you are like me and have been with Unlimitel since the days of Stephan Monette, it's time to reconsider your options. Primus, who purchased Unlimitel 7 years, is no longer interested in your business. With two DID price increases in less than a year (up $4/mth to $7.95) and per minute rates up 50% (1.5¢ a minute), it's time to look at voip.ms like I did. So much more for less money and customer service to boot. The latter was inexistant following the Primus takeover. I ported my number from Unlimitel without a hitch before my renewal date. There are some reports about Unlimitel charging cards after you close your account, but since mine expired (and I didn't update it on their portal) I did not have that issue. Unlimitel did charge me a $5 porting fee which was deducted from my existing balance.
