February 2010 update: We were unable to find a working website for Talk Times. The provider is probably out of business.

VelocityTel has some problems. They use an adapter, made by Grandstream, positioned between your router and your phones that I find highly unreliable. I have 3 lines. I can not be certain at any point that all three lines will be working, or even one. I just know that several times a day, an adapter will start flashing red, which means there is a problem. sometimes it will go for hours. Sometimes it will reset in a few minutes. The tech support people are always helpful, but the reliability sucks. I don't know with certanty that the adapter is the problem. I do know that I can swap out a problem adapter, and the problem disappears, for the moment.
Since the beginning of 2018 Mitel has decided to outsource there customer service. Service has dramatically deteriorated. It used to be quite good. You cannot get a rapid response to serious issues that are impacting service. When you do get a response, the tech is incompetent. You can end up waiting for a week or more while the problem is supposedly being addressed, and then find out it was not resolved due to incompetence. We have been forced to cancel our contract as a result, as this is a business critical function.
This is in regard to some of the posts I have read here. We installed a Mitel Hosted service and have received excellent support and call quality. I have a bit of data background and really understand what it takes to make this hosted thing work which is...INFRASTRUCTURE. Not only the cat5/6 cable and terminations done properly but the Power over Ethernet switches need to be configured/managed by someone familiar with voice priority. Another big issue is that many Internet providers configure their cable modems with SIP ALG turned on which is a no no regarding the Mitel product. Mitel is not SIP and that feature causes a lot of issues. Another provider mistake is the fact they they quite often have the internal Firewall turned on in the cable modem...another feature that causes problems. Probably the biggest factor of all is the provider or person that sold you the service..if you ask me it should always be from a Mitel Dealer/Partner... that is someone that understands the product, how it works and how to make you happy. We deal with the Mitel Partner on any issue that arises and always receive great support. You have the option of calling Mitel directly but just like any other large organization you have to deal with "HOLD TIME" Anyone can purchase a hosted product on line but i highly discourage that. Utilize someone that really has a background in servicing that type of product (Mitel or any other) and is willing to commit the time and resources necessary to get you through this not so easy transition.
