We have been using these guys for over 3 years now and while initially was little nervous due to my horrible experience with another VoIP provider these guys surpassed my expectations. They asked right questions and quickly brought me on board by helping me make right choices. They have always been able to address my technical issues and sometimes have gone a step ahead and helped me with issues on my end. I have gone to these guys with all kind of requests and issues and have never had any moment of disappointment. All I can say is once you switch to these guys you will never need to look else where. They have it all Quality, Competitive Price, Customizable products, Top of the line customer service. And I have recently started using their SMS service which I am loving.
These guys talk the talk but when it comes down to tech abilities its a big fat ZERO!! Couple guys from India sitting in they're apartment, probably students trying to meet tuition. I signed up to test if this would even work as many fall short when it comes to SIP trunking. The trunk registered but they couldn't even tell me what my IP was, they said it was *.*.*.* when its is actually -.-.-.- and blamed it on my server. The IP they gave me was from the PC I signed up with.Then I registered it with a server across town at another clients place and same thing. Blaming me blaming me blaming me they didn't even have the tools to really see what was going on with the trunk as they are some lame re seller of a re seller so ya I guess you get what you pay for. I couldn't do a wire shark as the calls didn't even reach my server. Its like this with most of these guys. they blame you and try to belittle you when they are sending the DID incorrectly or a header for a phone not a server. If you have GRANDSTREAM stay away from these guys. Maybe stay away regardless of your equipment.
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.
