WiMacTel, a nationwide provider of pay phones, inmate telephone systems, inmate friends & family calling plans and operator services, recently selected ThinkTel, a Canadian-owned business telecommunications provider catering to the SMB, enterprise and wholesale segments, as one of its primary SIP carriers.


Due to its CLEC footprint covering over 1000 centers across the country, ThinkTel operates an advanced national network designed to meet the demanding standards of Canada's largest organizations. The company delivers voice, video, and data services, including enterprise-grade SIP trunking, wholesale VoIP, and Hosted or Managed Microsoft Lync services. Through a network-neutral approach, ThinkTel proposes flexible solutions that meet its customers' requirements and enable them to reach their cost-cutting goals, while leveraging their existing infrastructures whenever possible.

Speaking on the agreement, James MacKenzie, CEO of WiMacTel said, "ThinkTel is a great fit for WiMacTel. We have combined our flexible network and innovative technology solutions to position ourselves as the only long term viable provider of pay phones in the USA and Canada, a fully featured inmate telephone system provider, the lowest priced inmate friends and family calling plans provider and a life cycle operator services provider to telephone companies. With the addition of ThinkTel, WiMacTel now has all the necessary components and partners in place to more aggressively market our products and services."

Dave Damer, president and CEO at ThinkTel added, "It has been a pleasure working with WiMacTel to determine how they could leverage our network and our software tools to enhance their service offerings. WiMacTel's people have an extensive knowledge of telecommunications industry and technology and we're excited that we could play a part in the innovative solutions they offer while getting them to market faster. We're looking forward to a great partnership and continuing our efforts to build on our wholesale offerings to support their business."
