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.

Overall it was not too bad.

I signed up for this service because of the good reviews from voip review. I have a business with 8 phones. I was told that if i had a fast connection then i wouldn't have any problems. I invested $5000 in a new network when we moved offices and we have a 5MBps dedicated connection. It took a few weeks for our phone number to be ported. Customer service was friendly but never fixed problems even though we had many support tickets and they were escalated to top level support. The phones that they recommended were the GXP 2000's and they are of cheap quality. We often have echo's and occasionally get disconnected. We have to reset our phones frequently to avoid problems. The main complaint i have is the quality and reliability of calls. The quality of my cell phone calls is much better than my voip ones. I just tell people to call my cell to avoid being disconnected. Overall we saved money on the service but more than payed for it on our network and time lost. Use a reliable provider or standard service
