Bandwidth.com is an Internet-based company that provides Internet and telephone service primarily to business and government users. Currently providing automated real-time pricing and procurement of business-class Internet connectivity through various carriers, it also offers hosted VoIP, SIP trunking and bulk origination and termination services.
Bandwidth.com offers five families of products:
- Data / Internet services
- Voice / VoIP services
- Managed network services

- Enterprise services
The company is focused on providing small and medium businesses with voice and data services. It has recently made huge inroads into servicing the IP-PBX market space, becoming the preferred VoIP service provider for some of the top private branch exchange (PBX) manufacturers, including Mitel and ShoreTel.
Originally formed in 1999, Bandwidth.com began as a home office start-up company in a spare bedroom of co-founder David Morken's Park City, Utah home. His goal was to form a telecommunications procurement company that focused on three key points of quality: selection, savings, and service. The company's rapid growth led him to relocate the business to Cary, North Carolina. As of November 10, 2012, Bandwidth.com maintains a workforce of over 300 employees, and had reported 2009 revenues in excess of US $87 million.
In July 2011, Bandwidth.com started working with Alabama's 911 centers to allow people to send text messages, pictures and videos to 911 in 2013. Bandwidth.com is a sponsor of the FreePBX Project.
Bandwidth.com also manages the assignment of telephone numbers for Google Voice— a carrier search on a Google Voice number, for example, will indicate that the carrier's identity is Bandwidth.com.
