Because of Bandwidth’s ability to give us reliable and cost-efficient VoIP termination in the U.S. market, we’ll be able to scale to serve even more users.”

Key customers include human resources technology provider TriNet.com, e-commerce provider SwimOutlet.com and conferencing provider FreeConferenceCall.com. As a company that targets small businesses through large enterprises with its one-click VoIP service, it had outgrown its retail carrier’s capabilities and was in search of more robust APIs, better number management capabilities, improved call quality and more competitive pricing. After evaluating several carriers, Zingaya decided to move all of its voice traffic to Bandwidth.
