Im a total newbie when it comes to using voip, but i did a lot of reading on the subject. After getting my last phone bill (yes i like to talk) i decided to take the plunge and signed up with atlantic telecom. The sign up process only took about 5 minutes in all and i got all my instructions by email soon after. My box arrived after 3 days (i was told up to 7) and was very pleased with myself after figuring out what to do with the cables. - yes im a female and know nothing about computers and the like. Anyway to cut a long story short i have to say WOW. The call quality is very very good and i love the features i get including voicemail to email - very neat! For $19.99 a month i get unlimited USA / Canada & Europe calls (my mothers in england) and i am just so impressed with the whole thing. I recently found out i can even use my laptop with a phone called x-phone or something like that - its pretty cool too. I have never used anyone else for voip, but im glad i chose the company i did - top marks all around. My account management features are really easy to use and i can log in at anytime to see anything i need to. I kept my phone number for FREE too, no porting. There was no small print or catches that i found with other providers - another big plus for me. With this atlantic telecom, unlimited is unlimited, not limited like vonage
I had them for two years and cancelled prior to my renewal for service issues and features I could get with a new provider that they didn't offer and they claimed I didn't cancel with more than a 30 days notice and they sued me for $11,000 for the next year's serivce.
I was with this company for years. Because at the time VOIP phone carriers did not have the best reputation overall, I never bothered to shop until an unethical behavior surfaced. During a phone call with one of their reps, he identified for me that I was being charged for a phone that I never ordered or received for about 2-3 years. Their invoices are not the easiest to read anymore since it has a bunch of model and ID numbers etc.... Once I addresses this concern, which I was convinced that it would be refunded since I never ordered this phone and company errors occur all of the time, they decided to throw at me the 30 day terms and conditions story. That should apply for those who ordered a phone, but not when phones are added to an account without knowing. The monthly amount for that phone was not much, but adding it for the time period it was over 200 dollars. This issue was escalated and still they would not budge to work or retain my business. Everyone agreed with me that I wanted a refund, but they said that a phone was mailed out. Once I inquired of who was the signer, it was not even someone from my office. Who knows if they added this phone to my account but requested by another customer of theirs. Even with all of that proof, nothing was done. Then I reached out to the Facebook chat and a lady by the name of Keisha (Director of Marketing) responded that my concern would be shared with the CEO of the company. How they wanted to help me resolve my issue. After I provided her my e-mail address to begin that process 2 weeks went by and nothing ever happened. I reached out again to her and she apologized for no one to contact me etc..., but again no solution to retain. I have returned all the phones and my account is paid up-to-date, I keep e-mailing the RMA department with a request to update me on the next steps to close my account. No responses!! I just left their manager a message and hopefully she will end this nightmare for me. Clients can leave companies and return in the future, but this client will never return and will make sure that I will never refer any new prospects to this company again. Not sure what the story was with Fonality changing to NetFortris, but Netfortris has been worse. I am thrilled with my new carrier and always address all of my questions. Good luck ever signing up with this company.
