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.
I have used USLEC for the past 3 years. the connection is reliable. Their customer service is great! I only face an occasional long hold time. Their additional services are amazing. You can change your standard T1 over to a VoIP connection. They offer any type of hosting you could want, including system backups. We have multiple locations, so they offer MPLS virtual VPNs between all of our remote sites. Try calling any bell companies and get better support. It will not happen.
US LEC is without question the WORST company I've ever worked with when it comes to customer service. EVERYTIME I try and get help they always say that no one is available, will create a trouble ticket and will have someone call me back. Not once has anyone EVER called me back and the company I work for that uses them has been with them for 2 years. The last time I tried to get tech support they couldn't even find my account or web domain! They are the absolute worst.
