Peru is a growing market for mobile messaging and operator are making it more and more difficult to send via cheap routes. Successfully delivering sms to numbers in Peru is increasingly challenging and a direct route is required. Therefore to solve this problem Nexmo is pleased to announce that we now have a direct route to all networks in Peru!
This route is now our default to all networks in Peru (MCC=716) and many customers have already reported a massive increase in their delivery success. Delivery receipts are not supported but as a direct connection an extremely high delivery ratio is guaranteed.
For Telfonica/Movistar (71606) the sender ID on all messages will be changed to a local number to ensure delivery.
For Nextel (71607) dynamic alpha and numeric sender IDs are supported
For Claro (71610) dynamic numeric senderID is supported
Our price to Peru remains the same at €0.04 per sms

After a long running saga involving bankruptcy of our previous partner and closing of the ranges by the main German networks we are very pleased to launch our new German Virtual Mobile Numbers.
These have been tested and we have been working closely with our new partner to ensure the issues surrounding our previous partner do not resurface.
The new numbers begin 49 157 7744xx
The number numbers are charged at €1/number/month. Outbound messages to Germany cost €0.0550 per SMS and as always with Nexmo, there are never any charges for inbound messages.
They are reachable from some international networks (we have tested from a few networks in Europe), but as our partner does not specify a guaranteed inbound reach list, we dont guarantee international inbound reach.
Please also note that our partner is upgrading their infrastructure on Wednesday 24th from 20:00 local time overnight until the next morning. During this time, inbound messages will be queued and delivered at the end of the maintenance window. We do not anticipate this being a regular occurrence. Outbound messages will not be affected by this maintenance window.
Malaysia is a major sms market which is continuing to grow in size. Along with this growth however, many problems are arising. Carriers in Malaysia are implementing more and more spam filters to prevent A2P traffic reaching their network via international SS7 routes. Spam filters can sometimes return in fake delivery receipts and don’t discriminate between spam and legitimate traffic. Therefore, you THINK that the route is working fine when it is not, in reality a large amount of messages on cheap signalling routes are being blocked. Therefore Nexmo is pleased to announce that we are now using a direct connection to all networks in Malaysia!
This will improve the “real” delivery ratio and allow sensitive applications such as financial alerts and password delivery to reach the phone. Delivery receipts are network receipts and not handset ones. It is a high-quality, stable route which will help to guarantee message delivery in Malaysia.
SenderID is changed to a shortcode and please note that marketing traffic must start with RMB 0.00 (with a space after the last 0). This is so the end users know that they will not be charged for replying to Opt Out.
The Price is €0.02 per sms to all networks

You are probably wondering why your SMS volume to Jordan is very low or perhaps your users are complaining of non delivery to handset. Hear this: Carriers in Jordan, like many , have implemented spam filters to prevent A2P traffic reaching their network. Spam filters can return in some cases fake delivery receipts and don’t discriminate between spam and legitimate traffic. Therefore, you THINK that the route is working fine, but it is not. What makes delivery highly unlikely to that market is the sophisticated spam filter of Zain, which has over 70% market share.
We are announcing today Nexmo direct connections to carriers in Jordan that will improve the “real” delivery ratio and allow sensitive applications such as financial alerts and password delivery to reach the phone. This is part of Nexmo local direct connections roadmap, so stay tuned for more!
What you need to know:
· Route is fully featured with dynamic sender ID and delivery receipt on every SMS
· Price is at 0.02 EUR per SMS across carriers
· Advertisement messages require you to add the word “adv” before the sender id e.g FROM=”adv Nokia” to be inline with the of Jordan
Improve your peace of mind, switch today to Nexmo :)
