What to Look for When Reading Reviews

  1. Retain Objectivity - Identify the purpose of the review. Is the review factual, emotional, or opinion based.
  2. Comprehension - Does it capture all the points of the provider. Look for a comprehensive scope within a review.
  3. Check the Dating - Providers change over time. Look for the most current information to fairly assess a company.
  4. Identity - Anonymous reviews diminish credibility and the authority of the source. Look for the reviewer's validity.

Our Tips For Buyers...

VoIP offers different solutions designed to fit various needs. With that, there are hosted VoIP solutions, in which a provider delivers and manages service(s) to you, and on-site solutions which require you to supply, manage, and maintain the necessary hardware. Both solutions dictate different levels of user involvement - as both solutions work differently to provide the same end result service. Though both options allow you to handle the basic functionality of the selected system, more advanced options are also readily available via user control panels.

Equipment and network quality can greatly impact the quality of calls; therefore, you want to be sure that you have chosen the best option, and have all the necessary equipment. As households and businesses vary in size and need, so do the equipment requirements. VoIP requires a sufficient broadband connection with bandwidth. (Note: the amount of bandwidth needed is determined by the amount of simultaneous users) Also users should be sure their internal network is fit to handle all the data (use our speed test tool to determine). Additionally, you should be sure your phones can support Voice over IP transmitting. In doing this, users will need SIP ready phones, or for non IP phones you will need a analog telephone adapter.

While VoIP offers tremendous cost efficiency in comparison to landlines, you should be aware that cost savings is relative to your calling needs. Installation and equipment fees are relative to the selected setting and system. Additionally, all startup and operating costs are determined based on the vendor and plan selected. In regards to calling plans, many services have additional fees for add-on features as well as international calling. VoIP calling is typically unlimited within the US and Canada; however, many times connecting to special lines or mobile phones can incur extra charges. Users should determine their needs before seeking out a vendor. Aside from need, users’ infrastructure also plays a large part in determining the overall cost efficiency of switching to this solution. If you will require an elaborate solution, costs will typically reflect this.

We're saving a significant amount of money with Mitel, especially considering the land line is not that an important element to our communication system.

It took a while to configure to our system, timing of switching services and transferring phone numbers was challenging due to Mitel taking their time of executing the process.

Our business recently switched from an Avaya phone system to VoIP with Vonage. So far, we are very pleased. I am exceptionally happy with the customer support. I've had several questions with the transition and I always get quick results from friendly people. We occasionally experience a very little silent break while talking, but never anything that disrupts the phone conversation. I highly recommend Vonage Business.

Jive Communications - The nicest people at Jive...

The nicest people at Jive. They will bury you with emails asking you if a ticket can be closed, but they don't actually solve the ticket, or even apparently read it. Trying for 2 months to get conferencing to work. Never get the same support person twice. Each new person promises to research and call back. Then a different person calls, wanting to close the ticket and we start all over. Sorry Jive, if you won't assign ONE person to a ticket, and follow up, we'll have to try another company. Good product, but your support system is broken.

Technically a bad company and the billing is horrible. In just 10 days I had to face both technical and billing issues.

They even suspended my number saying I overused the services even though I had around 1000 minutes left. I don't recommend this company.

Flowroute - Setup required some technical skills...

Setup required some technical skills, but not a huge amount. Once I got the QoS settings ironed out on my router, the sound quality was quite good, but had some jitter and break up for long sentences/continual talk in the outbound direction but none on the inbound (likely due to asymmetric bandwidth on my cable connection).

On the whole, I am now getting better service and more features for $50 less per month than I was with my AT&T landline. Since I already had the UPS for everything to function in case of power outage and the router, there was minimal capital expense in switching (
