Last year I signed a three years contract with Telepacific to provide phone lines and internet service to our 4 locations. The internet speed is very slow, they promise a speed and they provide different one. Also I did not get listing in the yellow pages as promised. The first 6 months the billing was accurate, after that they started adding to the bill many fees, and whenever I dispute them they refuse to give me the credit. My monthly bill should be $980.00 now it’s up to $1223.78. In May/2013 I called them to question their long distance rates to Switzerland and Jordan, I was told its 6 cents a minutes, and even I repeated the question many times to the customer service rep who insisted it is 6 cents. That is why I made the calls. When I received the bill it was .85 cents a minute, I disputed it and they claim they have no notes on the account regarding Jordan rate. Stay away from that company, they have a very slow internet speed and a lousy customer service, they will be nice until you sign a contract after that they will provide the worst customer service and they have stupid representatives who tricks you by giving you non existing rates to collect more money.
Telepacific is a great choice! This year I was given the task of installing a T1 line. I spoke with AT&T and was disappointed with their service. I found Telepacific and they were on site within a few days with a reasonable quote. We decided to go with them and it has been a good decision so far. Their service people are friendly and competent. Early on, we had a breakdown. It was resolved in a few hours with new equipment (I was told) installed off site somewhere. Since then, there have been no problems. Their customer service is easy to reach and called with updates during the installation.
Our needs weren't particularly easy. Two small companies at one location operating separately and answering the phones with 2 business names (with shared personnel), using an old phone system in a small office, in an industry that doesn't always welcome technology changes! Going to VOIP from Analog was the challenge of trying to make something newer - look more like the older system in order to minimize the technology pushback. We purchased Cisco SPA508G phones (not password protected), all with Attendant Sidecars (maybe not ideal since programming options can be more advanced), but they work well for us, were affordable, and we mostly use the basics anyway. We also have a warehouse speaker paging system. I'm not a phone guy - but decent with technology. We got by with only me doing the change out and with a little help from our contract IT guy to prioritize call quality and make sure our firewall ports were set correctly. FluentStream and more specifically Kaitlin, not only did an outstanding job of working with us to get where we needed to be - but they also cut our monthly bill by about 2/3. Are there cons... sure - very minor ones. I'm pretty sure they aren't (yet), a technology giant with unlimited funds - but - every need we had and that mattered - they met with a GREAT attitude and with AMERICAN customer service that was easy to understand. Actually, my view is that their setup options for he $ spent are VERY advanced. We tried two others before deciding - one of the LARGEST Voip companies out there, and one very small 2-3 person company. NO COMPARISON - even from the large company. They had no flexibility and hard-to-communicate with overseas people for support. Those we work with at FluentStream take time to listen and solve issues that are important to us. What is that worth? Every penny that we saved - and every $200. - $300. monthly that I feel we overpaid CenturyLink and 2 other companies over the last 6 years - for below average, often grouchy time-taking customer service. If you are like us, you will save thousands per year and for small businesses, and more importantly for large businesses, that can be significant. I really can't believe how much we are saving and how adaptable their system has been for us. We would definitely do this again and again and again!
I have been a FluentStream customer for a little over a year now and am completely 100% satisfied. The features we now have make our small business seem much larger to our customers and enables us to provide a much better service as well. The customer support has been outstanding and the questions I have had have been answered and explained and support has been available non-stop. Extremely cost efficient! I highly recommend!!
