Broadbox is NOT customer friendly. Recently I attempted to port away a few numbers from them. They like to play games with the porting process. They will deny your port for "invalid address". This happened more than 5 times when I had the correct address. Finally I opened a complaint with the FCC. A lot of times what a carrier will show for a Service Address is NOT the same as the billing address. In this case both the Service Address and Billing Address were they same. They hope you will get tired of fighting them and just give up. This is an on going case that has lasted for about two weeks and I am waiting to hear back from the FCC to the port completion with Broadbox. I will never buy DIDs or service from this company or anyone that resells their services again. They are the worst in my opinion.
I've been a customer for about 6 months now and no big problems. We used a hosted solution from them and I haven't had any issues or trouble with connectivity or call quality.
We started working with IDT in 2016. They tout serving over 32 billion minutes annually and 4 route divisions to choose from. The route divisions are irrelevant however, here I will explain why: The level of service/quality you *actually* receive depends on how greedy your Account Manager is, and the genie behind the curtain that changes up the routes to accommodate their desired margins. The end result of course is route instability and frequent calls to your support desk from angry customers reporting issues ranging from False Answer Service to calls not completing to legitimate destinations and wondering why they are paying for Platinum service only to receive problems typically associated with Silver-grade routes. With IDT we'd literally pass weeks at a time without issues, and suddenly a range of issues with many different destinations arise at the same time. We submit the ticket and the issue would eventually be resolved, but only after waiting > 24 hours for a response. In the IDT Express portal you are able to select which routing division, but in the end IDT simply does not honor your selection, and will route your traffic over the routes they choose behind the scene. It's really a pointless set up they offer. Go with Tata, NTT or BT if your customers' satisfaction is paramount.
