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.
I am the owner, founder, and "master bit herder" for icci, LLC. After 25 years of supporting other providers PBX and VoIP installs for my customers, I decided to enter into the marketplace. We tried several VoIP providers while developing our product. When we came across Telnyx, we knew that if the product worked as advertised, we were all in and had found our preferred provider. Key features we were after from day one: • SRTP/TLS connectivity • Debug terminal with verbosity set high for SIP sessions • T.38 Passthrough • Low latency to AWS Ohio Zone (11-20ms avg) • Flexible trunk price model (dedicated trunks not required) We were surprised by: • Rate Desk Tariff Pricing • Regular API feature updates and new features • AWS VPC availability At one point 18 months ago, we had a doctor's office that was unable to dial specific numbers owned by Sprint... Telnyx support owned the problem from the get-go, which I was very impressed with. It did take several weeks to get the issue worked out, however, we have had no further issues like this. Telnyx works perfectly with Sangoma's PBXact & FreePBX. Supporting TLS/SRTP really helps get an "A" on our HIPAA evaluations!
