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.
Don't throw out your landline if you get this - the service is unpredictable on netTALK sometimes it works most of the time when really need it it doesn't without having to do a bunch of plugging and unplugging of the duo device. I have come to count on it not working when I need it so always restart device. Another annoying issue is that it cuts off calls after 10 or 15 minutes which is aggravating if you are on hold in a queue. Don't bother with support they waste your time telling you the same stuff - certain ports need to be opened, which I had opened after the first call to them. If you do feel the urge to live on the edge and purchase this service in Canada note that for the basic 1 year subscription the advertised $49.95 does not include just over $11 in additional fees and this is in US dollars so by the time you are finished at current exchange rates you are looking at over $80 Canadian.
The old saying "you GET what you pay for" is a clear indication of THIS company's pathetic track record in providing both an inferior product and a very distressing support (for the lack of a better word)! The company initially had a promising future, but with the worst customer service, lack of any sensible documentation, no phone support and problematic services, I don't see how this company still operates! Stay FAR from this company.
