So, you're saying, you cannot recommend them, but also cannot recommend *any* voip provider.

That's fair, but IMHO, anybody (even as big as Visa and Godaddy, and the CIA) can be brought down by DDoS.  And Sandy was pretty huge.  I'll admit I was inconvenienced by those outages (that seemed to be one big outage), but I couldn't expect any other company, however big or small, to withstand it.

They reacted to the DDoS.  And they have always consistently provided excellent support.   (Compare THAT to vonage.)   ;-)
