Born Out of Necessity

Skyetel founder Chris Bardos first owned and operated Skye Blue, a successful phone service provider direct to small and medium-size business. As a reseller, Chris found that there were no good carrier-grade, sip trunk platforms catered to the unique needs of supporting multiple tenant-customers. Bardos sold Skye Blue to focus on serving resellers as a carrier with a completely different approach. In 2014 he sold Skye Blue and created Skyetel to focus on resellers.

In 2016, Skyetel deployed its own next-generation, nationwide carrier platform which has since had zero customer-affecting outages. And in 2020, Skyetel further reduced its reliance on other carriers by deploying to route local traffic to and from the legacy public switched telephone networks and the internet with their own OCN (622J).

Today, Skyetel has full autonomy over its own telephone numbers including direct porting control on the Number Portability Administration Center (NPAC). Skyetel handles its own number blocks, numbering authority with North American Numbering Plan Administrator (NANPA).

Skyetel provides access to over 11 million numbers in over 18,000 rates centers.

Bardos didn’t set out to build something just better, he wanted Skyetel to be completely new & different.
