I am more than satisfied with my bbtelsys service, the phone service is good, but where you really get your moneys worth is with the customer service. It is a small-medium sized company and they are more than willing to assist you. The phones they supply are very high quality, and durable. Their pricing was also terrific! BBTELSYS also has a web portal where you can log on and change you account settings and voicemails. Great way to tend to your bottom line as it is an instant change. I reccomend BBT for anyone looking to save some money and move away from the giants of telecommunications.

After about a month of good service, MagicJack started to drop calls after about 2 to 6 minutes. The online chats were worse than useless. One chat said that MagicJack requires 30 ms latency with 3 ms jitter. But the VoIP guidelines are 150ms latency max (one way) with 40 ms jitter max for good quality. It shouldn't ever drop calls unless the connection goes away for a 'long' time. OK. So, I measured ping times to google and also to a magicjack IP address (104.20.33.77),and got 14 to 19 ms using my smartphone, but my laptop got 10 to 12 ms. So, on my next online chat, I told that to the chat person, and it told me that that was not good enough (they lowered the bar) and that I should complain to my ISP. It also told me that magicjack was a superior service that required very low latency and jitter. But, it's really the other way around. The more latency and jitter tolerant a VoIP provider is, the better the service is. Obvious, right? So, these guys just hide when their stuff gets overloaded and does not work. Very poor service. And they have a deal where you pay extra for 'better' service. Now, that's a real scam. Ten times nothing is still zero.

I have spent hours on the phone with the Magicjack support people, and still have a device that will not work with my operating system. It appears that they sell devices to Mac users knowing full well that it is incompatible with the latest Mac software. You will not find this disclosure on their website, and they will not refund your money when you find that it does not work with your system. Instead, they will put you on hold, transfer you to another department without warning, and obfuscate rather than admitting that the problem is on their end. After hours on the phone, they will then tell you that a fix is in the works, you just need to be patient while they are working on it. This company scams people, plain and simple.

I run IT for a small team of 7 people. We have a quite heavy calling volume inbound and outbound and 8x8 handles this with ease. Highly recommend.
