There are a vast number of different ‘gateways’ that bulk SMS service providers can use to connect to the UK networks.
Reliability of these services varies enormously and they support a range of different functions.
Overseas gateways, where the SMS is dispatched from abroad, tend to be far less reliable than sending directly to a UK network.
What sort of problems can be expected using an SMS provider that uses an overseas gateway?
- Message delays (which can result in your messages being delivered in the middle of the night!)
- No delivery reports
- Messages not arriving
- Inability to set the sender ID. (who the message is from)
