8x8 has been completely reliable and stable for our company in the period that we have used their hosted VoIP system. We have not had any service downtime, and we have not had any dropped or missed calls. This is good news for us.

We've had a pretty great experience with 8x8 since we switched from another business VoIP provider last fall. Provisioning and set up was easy, and the one minor issue we did have was fixed quickly with help from customer support. So far so good.

I would provide 0 for all the 1s above if I could. I googled Windstream today. I call the number on the screen that says I can call for internet and phone additions/service. I want to add a phone line to my existing business account. I call the number. A man from another country answers. He says he cannot help me, and gives me the "service" number. I hang up and call the number - 855-575-7607. I need option 3 to add phone service. I press option 3 multiple times, only to have it continue to loop and offer me the same 4 options (this has happened to me on other occasions before today). I call the first number back from the website, to ask to be connected to someone who can help me spend more money with a worthless company. This time, I get a lady from a foreign country. She cannot help me. She says over and again, that she is not with Windstream....wait, isn't this the number I called from the Windstream site? She cannot have someone call me back, she cannot connect me, and she cannot help me. Beyond frustrated at this point. I then call the local St. Louis number, whereupon I do get an American who provided the help that was needed in the first place. Unfortunately, this is not the first massive communication I have had with Windstream. If I can switch all of our business accounts, I will do that as soon as possible. If you have a choice, do NOT choose Windstream. Run far and fast.
