Unlock the power of connectivity

From our network to comprehensive product offerings, Telnyx delivers where Bandwidth falls short.

  • Checkmark

    Secure communications

    Telnyx goes above and beyond to provide better security with ZRTP (which provides end-to-end encryption), TLS, and SRTP.

    Bandwidth sticks to standard industry security features and does not offer ZRTP, leaving your calls vulnerable to attack.

  • Checkmark

    Transparent, competitive pricing

    Telnyx's pricing is more transparent and competitive than Bandwidth's. Telnyx's pricing is based on usage, so you only pay for what you use.

    Bandwidth's pricing is based on a monthly subscription, even if you don't use all the features included in your plan.

  • Checkmark

    High-quality calls

    Telnyx uses a global network of Tier 1 carriers, while Bandwidth uses a network of Tier 2 and Tier 3 carriers.

    Tier 1 carriers are the most reliable and efficient in the world. Using their networks ensures that even long-distance calls will be delivered with crystal-clear clarity.

The Telnyx Mission Control Portal is designed for intuitive navigation and ease of use with comprehensive features and seamless integration.

Telnyx API sample code

Customizable APIs with 24/7, award-winning support

Speed up build times with our intuitive APIs, SDKs, and detailed development documentation. And you can easily adapt our APIs if our out-of-the-box offerings don’t suit your needs.

Telnyx gives you complete control over routing, authentication, configuration settings, and more. More control means you can build your communications platform to meet your needs. You can also set up custom authentication rules to protect your account from unauthorized access.

On the other hand, Bandwidth restricts configuration around options like encryption, whitelisting, and authentication. Restricted configuration limits your ability to customize your communications platform and makes securing your account more difficult.

The engineers at Telnyx worked with us to design and architect the right solution for Upmarket. We implemented Telnyx services and deployed a fully integrated softphone in half the time we expected.
