The absolute worst experience I have ever had with a company. I spoke with 10 different people and nobody was able to help me until the 11th person I talked to was able to figure out what was going on. My service was supposed to be set up on July 11th and I was even given a confirmation number and modem. Come to find out my service was not connected the day they said I was to receive service, and whenever I called for help, no one was able to pull up my account. I asked if I needed to be home for service to be set up, and I was told, "No, service will automatically be set up," it wasn't. The first time I called to figure out what the issue was, I called and was on the line for 20 minutes, and was hung up on. When I finally got a hold of someone that was willing and able to help me ( the 11th person), they let me know that they weren't able to send a tech out to install the service for another month.
While waiting for my two year contract to be finished, I moved to an area with free Internet. Yeah Google! I had to change my address for billing purposes which I later found out restarted my two year contract. When I called they said they put a note on my account and then I could call on my original two years was up and they would be no cancellation charge. I think they told me this is just so I'd stop bothering them. I called when my original contract was up and canceled. I confirmed there would be no charge. I week later I got an email for $170 cancellation. I called again and surprise there are no notes and nothing they could do. When I changed my address my two year contract started over . I didn't sign anything agreeing to this I'm not sure how they get away with this. I was a customer for over eight years. When I moved again I would've signed up with them but not now.
We have used Flowroute for several years. All along we have been highly impressed with their call quality, customer support, and price. They have scaled with us as our business has grown. We recently discovered their APIs which has been a godsend for us – because we can now manage our phone numbers in an automated fashion. Another important factor for us was to have SMS. Flowroute’s Messaging API solved that gap for us – although you do need to have some developer skills to implement.
