AllCore Reviews & Service Offerings
|Monthly Fee||Setup Fee||Other Fees||Long Distance Rates|
Allcore was founded back in 1997 from the bedroom of one of the current owners. Initially, Allcore provided services to small and medium-sized businesses but now have expanded their horizons to provide their services to everyone. As it stands now, Allcore provides its services across the entirety of North America and has customers across 60 countries in the world. They offer a variety of services which range from domain hosting, web design, web hosting, internet solutions and of course VoIP services. The headquarters of Allcore can be found at 200 James Street South, Suite 303 Hamilton, Ontario L8P 3A9 Canada. Let us now review and see how well Allcore residential plans add up to the competition!
Allcore offers a residential VoIP phone service plan which allows for unlimited local calls, as well as unlimited calling to anywhere in the US and Canada. This plan, however, costs a total of $35.00 per month which sinks the Allcore boat entirely. There are a number of reasons why this pricing is completely atrocious, first and foremost, the services provided, and the quality of services does not justify the pricing being implemented. Secondly, and more importantly, many other VoIP providers offer the same kind of plan that Allcore is offering but for a substantially lower cost. For example, PhonePower offers an unlimited North America plan for only $5.99 per month. That’s a steep difference of $29.00 which Allcore has no way to justify!
The amount of features that Allcore provides with this plan is commendable. However, there was no mention whatsoever made of a smart app that integrates a user’s device to the VoIP service. This is quite unsettling for the simple reason that the world is now running on smartphones, and the integration of these devices with our current services is imperative, and Allcore doesn’t provide that incentive.
Furthermore, no mention was made of any working fax capabilities as well. Many providers offer both smart apps, and fax capabilities inclusive to the plan, however, Allcore does not!
No mention was made of the international calling rates that Allcore charges. International calling rates vary from provider to provider, and Allcore has not provided a comprehensive list of these rates on their website!
In complete fairness, it can be said that Allcore VoIP Phone service is certainly not worth the amount of money being asked for. With the many inexpensive options that are currently available to customers looking for VoIP Home phone services, Allcore is not here to help the customer save money!
