Why customers chose Plivo over Twilio

"...I needed to be able to leverage device registration, which doesn’t work without a lot of hacks with Twilio. Plivo’s API lets me create a SIP endpoint, generate the registration ... register a phone or app directly to their SBC. Game Over."

- Vince Desta, Founder at Layer Four Solutions

"...Plivo is more than just a Twilio alternative, they have great voice quality and in the rare times when I had issues, their support team was on it right away. Plivo is a company I can trust to build my company on. It's a no brainer."

- Clint Berry, CTO at Weave
