About Us

Our mission is to provide Central Oregon customers with the highest quality communication services at affordable prices.

BendTel is a full service, facilities based, Competitive Local Exchange Company (CLEC), that has been focused on providing voice, long distance, data, Internet and hosting services to business customers in the Central Oregon area since 2003. Additionally we offer secure and fully redundant colocation services to clients all over the world. We also provide and install new and refurbished telephone systems, cabling and inside wiring.

We are a locally owned, operated and privately funded company with over 100 years of collective telecommunications and IT experience.

We are the only facilities based locally owned and operated CLEC in Central Oregon. Our network is the fastest and lowest latency of any provider network serving Central Oregon. We are connected to multiple Tier 1 networks in Portland and Seattle. We directly peer with local, national, and international networks including some of the largest content providers in the world. This ensures that we provide outstanding connectivity to the world and an excellent user experience for all our client networks.

At BendTel, we always put the customer first. We have live Customer Service Representatives answering your phone calls, and knowledgeable technicians to help you. Our goal is to provide our customers with Superior Customer Service and Technical Expertise and to become a Valued Business Partner.

We have developed and adopted a cooperative “No Blame” process which eliminates most service issues between equipment vendors, IT consultants, long distance carriers and local service providers. This process speeds service issue resolution through key stakeholders, eliminating much of the frustration when dealing with multiple communications providers.

BendTel uses technology from some of the best names in the business.


As Central Oregon’s largest locally-owned and operated Telecommunications provider, BendTel is committed to helping our community thrive and prosper. That’s why BendTel is proud to support local organizations like What If We Could that benefit our growing community.

Our commitment to serving this community goes beyond providing reliable business telephone and internet services to local businesses. We believe that by supporting local non-profits, it creates a ripple-effect that helps us all. This year, we are proud to support Shephard’s House Ministries, Saving Grace & Teen Challenge through in-kind giving, volunteering and donations. We also support human-I-T, connecting low-income individuals and non-profits to technology, internet, and digital training.

We understand the value of a strong and healthy community. That’s why it’s important to us to invest in the well-being of our community members and the future of Bend.
