Pathetic service. Horrible customer service. To top it all, today I received a call mentioning that they are not going to provide service to residential customers any more. Thwy would like me to move to another provider by 14th but are not going to reduce my monthly bill if I move out earlier. Least customer friendly company.. Caution to all those commercial customers.. stay away from this company. I wish I could give a rating of "-1".
Pathetic Customer Service, they never respond to email or returns your voice messages. Calls disconnect or doesn't connect at all...after thousands of attempt if call is connected then they will apologize and will show sincerity and will promise to help yout but nothing happens afterwards... you call them again no response... Trust me you will go mad.. thye have no values on commitment. Cusotmer are jokes for them and they belive do what you can do, i dont give a damn to you.. They call quality is going down.. call often gets dropped and many times there is no service... when you call internatioanlly then call quality is often no good... Now i am trying to call them to cancel but no response..already send so many emails but no response and they are billing me full price regualrly.. I need to take them to consumer court and probably higher a lawyer to team them a lesson.... i dont know who gave them the license to run the service in this country... there service shall be revoked... cheaters and highly unscrupulous people...
This review comes from a global operation with over 1000 employees and over 60 locations in the USA and Canada. We used Cyclix redundant SIP Trunk product which simplified our VoIP Enterprise Solution. We've managed VoIP phone systems since the early 2000's when they were first being introduced. We slowly transitioned from PRI/T1 technology to SIP with Cyclix over the years with a near flawless transition. Voice quality never suffered. As always with any transition we did have some hurdles or incompatibilities but the Cyclix support engineering staff helped resolve and even provide guidance to our integrator. I would highly recommend Cyclix to any Small to Medium sized business looking for SIP Trunk Solutions or Hosted solutions.
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.
