this company is terrible. i paid for a 2 year and now they will not refund my unused portion. their service is terrible as is customer service. i have reverberations and dropped voice packets. i was with ATT call advantage prior and everything was great. right now they point their finger saying the quality of the line is bad therefore their is nothing they can do. ATT has been to my home now 3 times and made different changes just to appease me. i never had a moments problem with ATT call advantage VOIP but they are discontinuing the service. i would recommend if you go with this company you pay by the month only and i would do it for some time if not forever.
Been with Future Nine for about 3 months. Got three accounts from them - two lines for our place and one for my mom. The sound quality is quite good - very rare to have any drops. You need to be a little on the techie side (or get a techie friend) to set things up - they don't do it for you. But once you got is setup it just keeps running. You can quit anytime after you use up your balance - unlike tenacious Vonage. Don't expect customer service by phone. It is by email and they responded every time. That is how they keep those prices down. I recommend the Bare Essentials plan for $75/year which includes 250 min monthly long distance in US/Canada. You need some extra money on the account for those overseas calls. They work only on account balance - no monthly bills (again keeps their cost down). So you got to make your choices - Vonage type at $25/mo (and tentacles) or FN for about $8/mo ($75/yr + a few bucks for overseas).
I've been involved in every step of the process of replacing a myriad of phone systems that we maintain between about 18 sites. We wanted a unified solution for all our locations regardless of state lines and network capabilities. Cyclix has taken care of that in spades. We're operating multiple voip lines on 1mbps pipes over VPN tunnels and the quality of the audio is still there! Our old phone bill has already gone down enough to cover 2/3rds of what we pay for our new service and there are still multiple lines to cut over from the old vendor that would more than cover the cost of monthly operations. Support is readily available and dedicated to making sure problems get solved while you're on the phone, not during a callback when it gets escalated to a higher level technician. All tiers of support are pleasant and knowledgeable at their level of proficiency. I'm not quite sure the feature set would be capable enough for an enterprise grade operation but you'd probably be running your own in house system at that point anyway. For an SMB company, everything you'd need is available and running out of the gate. The only issues I have at the moment are with phone quality and training. The Polycoms we've received seem to have a higher than normal failure rate but we've received replacement devices promptly and they come preconfigured. Your mileage may vary, but it might be worth considering using a Cisco phone system to get a more stable desk set. The training program was recently designed and could use some work. I think once they get the kinks worked out, there could be a lot of benefit there, but it's not quite up to snuff yet. It's also worth noting that we haven't had a single service outage during our time with them. Overall I'm very pleased with our service and would definitely chose them again for our phone system.
