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've hat a netTalk Duo tat worked fine for a few years. Over the last year it started going off line with the flashing red light. I had to reset it bu y unplugging it and then plugging it back in. This was happening more frequently, so when I happened to get an email solicitation from netTalk to upgrade to their new upgraded device the ezLINQ, I decided to give it a try. A week after I ordered it I had not been provided any tracking information. So went on line to call them up. (Found out that there was not a direct phone number.). The only two options were text messaging and email. I wad told it took two weeks for delivery. A few minutes after texting I received an email from USPS that a tracking number was provided but package had not been provided to the carrier. Two weeks later the USPS still had not been provided with the package. I texted netTalk again, After about 45 minutes the Customer Service could not tell me anything more than what I already knew. (there was a tracking number provided to USPS and they were awaiting for the package to arrive at the facility.). The customer Service said they would check on status and email me. After 24 hours had passed I had not received an email. I texted netTalk back and told them to cancel my order and to issue a refund to my PayPal account. Late that evening I received an email from USPS that the item had arrived at their facility. I texted netTalk that I had cancelled the order and that I did not want the package. I told them to intercept the item and to refund my PayPal account. They made no attempt to intercept the item. After more texting and they finally sent me a return Fedex mailing label and told me that once they received the package back that they would issue the refund. The package was delivered back to netTalk on October 2, 2019. I informed netTalk' Customer Service that the package had been delivered and to issue the refund. As of today there has been no refund issued and netTalk Customer Service will no longer respond to my text messages or my emails. I have initiated a dispute with my credit card company. BOTTOM LINE.....STAY AWAY FROM NETTALK.
My experience with NetTalk has been nothing but positive. We dropped our land line five years ago for the Duo. Aside from occasional power outages due to storms it has worked flawlessly. No problems with call quality. Price has gone up over the years but $50 for the year - so cheap compared to what we used to pay the phone company.
