My company's landlines phone service is up for renewal in January, and I'm looking at the possibility of getting a better and more affordable voice service company, for the Chicago area (Evanston to be Precise). I would like to know about Comcast voice service for businesses in the Chicago area. Is their service good? We're a small company of 30 people in one location. We also use fax.

Comcast offers VOIP over cable, not landline service.  It might be cheaper but I doubt that it will be better.  In my area, all the people who got it for their home went back to the phone company.  And in the apartments I live in, the management company uses Comcast VOIP and internet.  The biggest problem they have had was in getting decent techs out to take care of problems.

If you can find someone near you that has the service, you should ask them.  I expect the technical part of the service has improved but the people in any area make a big difference too.
