I have been with Alcazar Networks for termination and now origination and they have met or exceeded all expectations even in the one instance of minimal downtime in four years. Their support lines are always open, and their email responses are quick and easy to read (No Canned responses here). I migrated my traffic to Alacazar networks after reading many VOIP reviews, and their sterling reputation as a solid provider in the industry is what sold me. Upon switching over my termination, there was a instant cost savings especially when they turned me on to LRN routing. On top of that, crystal clear call quality and termination to more destinations I had not previously had which all in turn keeps my customers happy (More destinations, lower pricing). Alcazar Networks has helped my business grow over the years with their excellent and unprecedented service and commitment to customer satisfaction. I would recommend them to anyone looking for excellent Origination and Termination services.
Been with s2s for over 2 years now and have had no problems. The software and features are all up-to-date, and the customer service has been great.
The Star2Star service works well enough. We experienced disjointed levels of service. Out local 3rd party representative charged us for products covered by Star2Star and used the excuse that we should have known. We actually stopped using Star2Star in the middle of a 60-month contract. We still paid for there service. We could not get out of paying any of the line items on our invoice: Invoice Processing Fee: $4.99 per month E911: $2.99 per month Maintenance: $37.90 per month Bandwith Optimization per line: $2.50 per month Watch out for their cancelation policy. You can cancel your account for the day your contract expires providing you do it 180 days before and no less than 60 days before your contract expires. The penalty for missing this is an auto-renewal of 12 more months. The "reward" for canceling your account for the day your contract expires is a $150.00 "Early Contract Termination Fee." Up to this moment, no one can tell me how to cancel the contract on time. I admit, that I "cut off my nose to spite my face" when I stopped using Star2Star in the middle of our contract. Again, note that I stopped using their service. I did not stop paying for it. After getting nowhere with their "You are covered for this repair/part under our maintenance agreement ($37.90 per month) but our dealer charged you" issue, I did not want to continue using a product from this company. Again, "Cutting off my nose...". I was ready to let "bygones be bygones" until I got hit with my $150.00 early termination fee. The whole experience seems like a ripoff to me. Buyers beware! Charles
