I'm satisfied with Level 3

Unlike Telefonica, another provider we interact with on almost day-to-day basis is very prompt in responding to our email(s)/ticket(s). I do not remember the last time I had to contact Level 3 for an hourly/regular update. We always get it before we could contact them. And not to mention, our clients too expect the same. We all in the business expect this class of operation, don't we? I'm satisfied with Level 3.

Level 3 - A broad footprint but requires a doctorate in cat herding

Level 3 has been steadily expanding their footprint and the integration of acquisitions has been slow and painful and it impacts their overall customer service. The account team has been very responsive but the logistical\deployment teams are painfully slow making an already difficult project exponentially harder to manage. The appearance is that internal communications are exceedingly poor. Our first 10 sites were deployed (taking up to 8 months in some cases) and 8 of them were placed in the wrong VRF. The support group refused to fix this immediately and required the account team to submit modifications. Not only did we waste thousands of dollars on travel (these were all EMEA sites) we were not able to use any of the circuits. To top that off, they continued to bill us for services that they would not provide despite the fact that it was their error. The account team got it worked out and we were credited but it took an enormous amount of effort and hand-holding to get the credits processed. Even then, the AR group was extremely difficult to work with and insisted that we were somehow still responsible for a portion of the bill. I've found their NOC support to be excellent, but getting to the NOC through standard support options is awful. The first level engineers are often condescending when we have obvious performance issues. They argue for weeks that it's not their side only for us to find that there were a speed and duplex issue between the LEC and Level 3.

Improved and faster delivery of content

Performance has been better, we have used Limelight in the past and Level 3 seems to have improved the experience overall.

The 4 on-net sites were a snap but the off net build location was a struggle.

Level 3 had on-net fiber presence at 4 of our 5 sites.

Implementation easy, but could use more self management tools

Mostly good experience, sometimes it takes too long for them to make changes in the managed system.

Support needs to Improve

Our implementation had several issues due to difficult communications during the process. Our project manager had a lot of wait time trying to get answers. However my real issue is since go-live. We have experienced numerous service outages as well as dropped calls for unexplained reasons. The timeliness of response from support is not what I would expect for a system that is the lifeblood of my company. When my telecom is down my company is down and I need immeadiate and urgent response.
