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.
Whenever we've had and issue, the folks at MetroFax have been responsive and resolved things right away. Our companies have used their services for years. After all this time we simply expect and consistently receive impeccable service form MetroFax In the end it always boils down to the people providing the service. Other providers of internet services come and go. MetroFax has always been there for us. Alan R.
MetrFax allows for 1000 fax pages per month, which is huge. It has a very easy to use interface that I truly believe ANYONE can learn within minutes and they do not charge per minute but per page that is sent, regardless of the time it takes to send. Love the 24 x 7 Customer Support. I haven't had to use it much though I have had a question or two and was able to get through at whatever time it was that I was call I was happy with the 30 day free service even though it was for the 2nd month after signing up. (Still FREE, Gotta love that!) Metrofax has been a good program for my medium sized business and as I see it now, there is no reason for me to change or even shop around for anything else.
