I had Sagevone for around a year, and can't say much that is positive.I didn't have trouble with the uptime of the service but the call quality was constantly very , very, very poor, which made the service unusable. The voice quality itself was above average but parts of the conversation were lost, and this problem was constant and never solved.It was like dropping every other word, and it was just in one direction. The people that I talked to could hear me just fine, but I couldn't understand their responses because of this problem of missing every other word of the conversation. All VOIP tests run by them and me showed no problems with the connection over the Internet, with MOIP usually 4 or higher. The technical support seems to revolve around one person, which may be the owner. All of my problems were blamed on my ISP by the support person. After changing adapters, routers, cable modems, and switches several times, no problems were ever fixed. Call quality was the poorest when talking to them. They have a lot of features, a lot more than most, but if the service is always very poor, the features really don't matter.
After six months and two VoIP adapters I have never had reliable service. Calls drop at random times, audio drops out for several seconds, the audio quality is bad and lately, when I get an outside call all I here is a busy signal. When people call me they hear a ring tone but my phones do not ring, or they get a message "All lines are busy." When I contacted the SageVone service people I made appointments to talk with technical experts that were never kept. In six months I have never talked to a technical person. Their service representative was rude and abusive and blamed everyone except himself for the problems. They kept blaming my broadband service even though I sent test data showing that there was no problem on this end (6.5Mb/s isn't enough?!?). They also told me that their service is incomatible with MacOS and Linux systems. Something that they do not advertise. In my opinion, this is not a company to be trusted or patronized.
They were aggressive in pricing my bundled solution to make it attractive to switch from Verizon to their service. Reliability has been horrible though. One of my two circuits is down at least once a month, and this month I've had downtime 3 times already! Sure they provide credits for downtime but that doesn't offset the loss of business when I can't make or receive phone calls. Even if I have to pay a penalty to switch I can't afford not to at this point.
