In the beginning the service was great and the support was top notch when needed. That was few and far between. Lately the call quality is wanting and support has been reduced to asking a serious of questions from a list. It is the same thing that happens to all growing companies, they get to a point where the equipment is no longer able to support the number of users they have grown to and blame the user for everything.
I'll update if things change.
Over the last few months things have gotten much better.

Re: We´d like to help
said by suppafly:Been there done that, on line chat was about as useless as teats on a boar hog. I was told to check the ports on my firewall, and verify that my ISP wasn't blocking ports, even tho my issue was exactly the same from more than one location. There was no way the SCRs were checking anything on your end, they just went down the list of things that could be wrong with my network. Then after the changes\repairs\updates you guys made on the 13th fixed every problem I had. But please continue to point the finger at my network being the problem, both of them.
I´m sorry that you are experiencing issues on the service, if you could please send me your ticket number via PM I will verify if everything has been handled correctly, or what else could be investigated.
Thank you for your cooperation,
Re: There's nothing wrong...
said by ArizonaSteve:Yes it is always the end users problem, even when the issue is the same from more than one place and ISP and magically goes away when scheduled maintenance is performed. Please don't assume just because something is working for you it is fine for everyone else. You have no idea what server I'm using, what config I have, what devices I'm using so there is NO way you can know what is happening on my end. This is a same attitude I complained about in my review. I spent 4 days going over my network before calling VOIP.MS and then 2 days being told it was my problem. Then like magic the very next day after planed maintenance the service was back to normal.
The service here is just fine. If you are having problems it's likely due to your internet service slowing down. You can always switch to a different server in a different city to check it but I'd run a speed test to see what's wrong with the internet service before complaining about VOIP.
Re: There's nothing wrong...
said by ArizonaSteve:That's not right, to deny the issues someone else is experiencing simply because you don't have the same issues.
Sure tech support is pretty useless but the service is still just fine.
In most of these situations (with any company), it is not every single customer who is affected. If THAT had been the case, a company couldn't survive.
With VoIP there are many variables.
In VoIP generally, Inbound service depends greatly on which CLEC handles your phone number.
And in the specific case of Voip.MS, Outbound service depends greatly on which city server is being used....
About Support As a company, we always thrive to get better and improve things. As much as I agree that the quality of support can always be improved, I disagree that our support is totally useless. I collected a few random quotes this morning, here's a minuscule sample. I'm sorry that you experienced a support that was not up to par with your expectations.
Of course, most of these people are not posting here. Many users use anonymity and internet to post their frustrations, rather than their satisfaction.
I'm also glad to hear that your problems have been resolved since our latest New York update.
I have used the chat service a couple of times and EVERY time it has been a quick response with the right answer. I'm very happy to deal with a company that has actual customer service, which is such a rarity these days.
excellent support. Never had support like this from Bell.
The support i received was excellent. Ed's troubleshooting skills were great and he was very patient as this session lasted well over 1.5 hours. He was very competent in what he knows. Gold star to Ed today.
