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
My business partner wanted to go with this service. I have my reservations, yet since my partner was excited we gave it ago. I was trying to change our credit card for billing. It took five calls to get an actual human. She was nice. She tried to help. Loading in three different credit cards because the system kept telling her our address was wrong. It wasn't until on the third credit card that was to a completely different business, address, and bank that she realized that it was not the cards but the system. At the same time, I get an email that they charged the first card which as the one they said we needed to change. I really feel for those who work there, what a damn nightmare to work in such an inefficient place.
The product worked ok, but we eventually had to switch because when we needed help it was a nightmare. Must of customer service can read their scripts in English but they can't really work in it. My account manager put me on a better plan that would save me money - it cost more. Security protocols are absurd and sometimes different departments had different answers to the same security question. We had three fax lines and they were unable to recognize it was all one account. And the real nightmare started when we tried to port our numbers to a new provider. They kept refusing the port and refusing to connect us with someone who would help. Meanwhile they disconnected one fax line and changed the email delivery of incoming faxes and confirmations to me. This is a small business, I am finance, HR and IT. I already get a load of emails every day and now I spend half my time distributing other people's faxes. With experience I have become very good at being forceful enough to get almost any disinterested or in competent customer service rep to help me, but with RingCentral it was a waste of effort. Brick Wall level incompetence on the other side. Run, do not walk, away from RingCentral.
