Customer service # is hard to find, and not on the contact page. Initial call is outsourced, and you are transferred to a California technician after you are identified as needing technical assistance beyond the first level outsourced support. Undetermined Over 24hrsQuestionableThe toll free number was not working properly so we submitted a web-form request and got a call in the afternoon on the following day. NA QuestionableSupport was not available to us as we were only users not admins of the account. Customer service was supposed to call and resolve this but it's been 2 days now with no calls. 4 minsQuestionableThe 4 minutes was spent listening to self-help offerings. Following that we were connected to an outsourcing unit that answered as "J2 Global" not "eFax". Informed SupportGetting through to support is one thing - getting help is another. We asked each fax service a few questions to see how they did in helping us through. YesQuestionableTechnical support was very quick to answer our questions and was the only fax service that outsmarted our reviewers. YesQuestionableCustomer service # was easy to find and the technician was very honest about the issue we called about, admitting it's a problem with the service(online fax preview does not work every time), and nothing with our PC config. Some companies waste customer time, checking end user settings, in an attempt to hide a service problem when they know it's on their end. Yes Undetermined Yes See notes QuestionableDetails on issues with customer service are coming soon. We are currently resolving a problem with a lost online fax. NAQuestionableeFax does not offer phone assistance to callers unless they are premium subscribers. Time To ReceiveWe sent a 6 page fax including cover and timed how long it took to receive it from the point of hitting Send. Under 1 Minute 10 mins 3-5 mins Undetermined 7 mins 2-5 mins 5 minsQuestionableThis is the raw transmission speed from the time it connected to the time it disconnected, not including any delays setting up the fax message to deliver or waiting for a line. We will be looking for more unbiased results shortly. Corporate Offerings?We've reviewed the least expensive option here fom each Internet fax service. Corporations will of course want to know if they have offerings for large-scale use.
