IP5280 is the worst telecommunications company I've ever dealt with. Even the BBB agrees with over 19 complaints in 3 years of writing this. We were promised feature after feature then when our order got to provisioning we're told that our features are not supported. This didn't happen once but 3 times so far, each time being reassurred that we'll be fine ... "just sign here" is what we're told. Even our sales guys left the company a week after we signed our contract saying he had a hard time working there so he quit. We get no return phone calls. Support has more tiers than wedding cake with nobody knowing what the other does. This company is a joke. A small business shouldn't have to worry about their telecommunications company. For us our issues are still not resolved and we've been worried and stressed since day once. Even after all of our issues our sales guy tells us today "No problem, just sign here and we'll make it right". We have to order more services. What a joke. Stay away!
We started working with IDT in 2016. They tout serving over 32 billion minutes annually and 4 route divisions to choose from. The route divisions are irrelevant however, here I will explain why: The level of service/quality you *actually* receive depends on how greedy your Account Manager is, and the genie behind the curtain that changes up the routes to accommodate their desired margins. The end result of course is route instability and frequent calls to your support desk from angry customers reporting issues ranging from False Answer Service to calls not completing to legitimate destinations and wondering why they are paying for Platinum service only to receive problems typically associated with Silver-grade routes. With IDT we'd literally pass weeks at a time without issues, and suddenly a range of issues with many different destinations arise at the same time. We submit the ticket and the issue would eventually be resolved, but only after waiting > 24 hours for a response. In the IDT Express portal you are able to select which routing division, but in the end IDT simply does not honor your selection, and will route your traffic over the routes they choose behind the scene. It's really a pointless set up they offer. Go with Tata, NTT or BT if your customers' satisfaction is paramount.
