Complaint Review: Cbeyond
Cbeyond5234 N Southwest Hwy Monument, Colorado United States of America
Cbeyond $15,000 Cancellation Fees, (not a typo-$15,000) Misleading Salespeople; Overpriced Products; Horrible Service; Monument, Colorado
*Consumer Comment: Heres my Strategy
Cbeyond offers land lines, blackberry service, web hosting, secure back up and file share, email, voice mail, etc. I have Cbeyond for less than a year now and not one service provided by Cbeyond has functioned as promised. The worst part is that they make you sign an agreement that states you will pay no matter what for three years should you cancel service. Stupid on my part for signing without doing research about the company in question. Had I seen the Ripoff Reports, and read consumer feedback, I'd never have agreed to the salespeople's pitch.
Usually two people solicit your business, and they are charming personalities, but not authorized to sign the agreement that they put in front of you. You're the only one signing; Cbeyond never signed my contract! I have 5 Mobile lines, and 50% of the services I used to have with Verizon, were not included in my contract price. I tried to cancel my agreement within the first 30 days, because it was too difficult to get everything working properly, and the estimated cancellation charge was over $15,000!
If you have a technical problem, they direct you to their website and open a service ticket, that's the best way to resolve an issue. Well you open a service ticket and a month goes by and then you'll receive an email that says the issue has been resolved, but no one calls to see if it was done correctly. It's a total scam, because every time I call about my inconsistent and overpriced billing statements, customer service can manipulate the amount by applying or canceling credits and discounts. I've never done business with such a company; charging whatever they feel like, because they've got you trapped! They are preying upon trusting people like myself that sign ridiculous agreements without verifying if it's true or not. Do yourself a favor and never sign an agreement with Cbeyond. I've very sorry that I switched from Qwest Internet/Phone; and Verizon Wireless.
