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
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
