Sending text messages internationally
We connect to mobile networks in over 200 countries.
Our prices for international SMS are amongst the lowest and, unlike many providers, we provide a tailored country-by-country tariff, rather than simply charging 2 text credits for non-UK destinations. (Please note that non-delivered texts outside the UK are not refunded.)
This means you pay a low fair price for each country that want to send to.
We are, on average, 33% cheaper than the competition
