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.
I replaced my VOIP with a Cox Business bundle which included an enhanced internet speed and Cox VOIP. Cox represented that its voice quality on its VOIP would be far superior to my Vonage system because Cox VOIP had an independent internet connection which did not connect to my desktop computer. Conversations are garbled on 60 to 70% of the calls. More than 50% of the calls are disrupted completely when the person on the other end of the line can not hear me when I am speaking. I am forced to return business calls on my cell phone to complete conversations. The message voice recognition feature which emails transcripts of messages to my Outlook Inbox is highly inaccurate. The messages are unintelligible. In short, my conversion to Cox VOIP has been a disastrous mistake. Even worse, the COX VOIP phone service is more expensive than the VOIP system it replaced. The Cox VOIP appears to be based on very outdated technology. The quality is similar to the first generation voice recognition systems that I experienced 10 or 25 years ago. CAVEAT EMPTOR. Do not purchase a Cox VOIP service.
I have visited 6771 Quail Hill Pkwy. Irvine, CA 92603 location last month. I wanted to return my COX Tv. They said that if I return it my monthly payment going to increase. They said I have a promotional rate of up to 2 years. And This month I received my bill $37 more. I contacted customer service and explain the situation. The customer representative was worse than the actual Cox Rep. in the store. They "DO NOT CARE" about customer's problems at all!!! Please stay away from them. I am going to cancel my service tomorrow.
