Been with s2s for over 2 years now and have had no problems. The software and features are all up-to-date, and the customer service has been great.
The Star2Star service works well enough. We experienced disjointed levels of service. Out local 3rd party representative charged us for products covered by Star2Star and used the excuse that we should have known. We actually stopped using Star2Star in the middle of a 60-month contract. We still paid for there service. We could not get out of paying any of the line items on our invoice: Invoice Processing Fee: $4.99 per month E911: $2.99 per month Maintenance: $37.90 per month Bandwith Optimization per line: $2.50 per month Watch out for their cancelation policy. You can cancel your account for the day your contract expires providing you do it 180 days before and no less than 60 days before your contract expires. The penalty for missing this is an auto-renewal of 12 more months. The "reward" for canceling your account for the day your contract expires is a $150.00 "Early Contract Termination Fee." Up to this moment, no one can tell me how to cancel the contract on time. I admit, that I "cut off my nose to spite my face" when I stopped using Star2Star in the middle of our contract. Again, note that I stopped using their service. I did not stop paying for it. After getting nowhere with their "You are covered for this repair/part under our maintenance agreement ($37.90 per month) but our dealer charged you" issue, I did not want to continue using a product from this company. Again, "Cutting off my nose...". I was ready to let "bygones be bygones" until I got hit with my $150.00 early termination fee. The whole experience seems like a ripoff to me. Buyers beware! Charles
I am the owner, founder, and "master bit herder" for icci, LLC. After 25 years of supporting other providers PBX and VoIP installs for my customers, I decided to enter into the marketplace. We tried several VoIP providers while developing our product. When we came across Telnyx, we knew that if the product worked as advertised, we were all in and had found our preferred provider. Key features we were after from day one: • SRTP/TLS connectivity • Debug terminal with verbosity set high for SIP sessions • T.38 Passthrough • Low latency to AWS Ohio Zone (11-20ms avg) • Flexible trunk price model (dedicated trunks not required) We were surprised by: • Rate Desk Tariff Pricing • Regular API feature updates and new features • AWS VPC availability At one point 18 months ago, we had a doctor's office that was unable to dial specific numbers owned by Sprint... Telnyx support owned the problem from the get-go, which I was very impressed with. It did take several weeks to get the issue worked out, however, we have had no further issues like this. Telnyx works perfectly with Sangoma's PBXact & FreePBX. Supporting TLS/SRTP really helps get an "A" on our HIPAA evaluations!
