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!
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.
