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.
As IT Manager for a Software Company in Mississippi, I worked with my peers to greatly research VOIP providers in the area to upgrade our PBX system. Going to other service providers the cost would be outrageous for the same service or the other providers would fall short on quality and not take responsibility for the whole system. Earthlink came in with a wonderful complete all-in-one solution to our needs at a great price. We get a great QoS with Earthlink as the backbone is their the ISP connection that they service, thus by not having a third-party there is not fingerpointing. Moveover, Earthlink also installs and maintains POE switches, router, the VLAN for the phones the UPS and even has local service technicians for all points of the setup to provide wonderful customer service. We have an onsite generator which the POE Switches plug into, thus even during a power-outage we have working phones and great phone quality --- which is key for our software support department. Moreover, we get the many benefits of VOIP technology which is the present and extended future of unified communication.
