Support Policies


First and foremost, it is our policy to deliver on our promise of excellent quality of service, and world-class technical support and customer care. Customers have come to expect great quality from Cloud9Phone, and we are committed to meeting and exceeding expectations in this regard. Just as important, we focus on helping our customers to understand how best to achieve reliable, high quality hosted VoIP and SIP trunking services.

Below we illustrate our policies on supporting customers that "bring their own broadband", or manage their own LANs and WANs. We always work with our customers to identify issues and resolve them quickly, but it is important to clearly state the areas where Cloud9Phone is responsible for service delivery.
