Getting an SMS into Latvia can be tricky and espensive to some of the networks. Today Nexmo is using a local partner with direct connections which allows us to lower our pricing.
From today, SMS to Latvia will cost €0.035 per SMS to LMT and Bite or €0.045 to Tele2 and Triatel
The route is fully featured, so dynamic sender ID and handset delivery can be expected.
Today Nexmo is pleased to launch Long Numbers in Austria. Priced at €2.50 per number per month, these will enable 2-way SMS with your customers.
Due to the setup with the operators when you acquire a Long Number there will be a change to the MT service for your account in order to maintain direct route towards Austrian subscribers. Any SMS sent to Austria without using the Long Number as Sender ID will have Sender ID changed to +43676800505001. If you decide to stop using Austrian numbers and wish to return to the regular MT service, please contact us.
More countries are on the way in the coming weeks - watch this space!
Like most of Western Europe, the Italian Operators charge a high termination fee for SMS delivery.
Today Nexmo is launching a local direct to provide a saving on the SS7 fees, In addition to the usual anti-spam policy, the Italian networks are keen to stress that using a company name in the Sender ID is only allowed when the message is from that company.
Polish operators have shut down most of the SS7 connections, however, they do allow A2P to come in at a lower price level than P2P traffic.
Today Nexmo is is able to deliver messages via a local connection. Alpha Sender IDs are dynamic, Numeric Sender IDs are replaced with ‘NXSMS’ As well as the usual ‘no spam’ policy, our partner has provided some additional info on blocked content: senders like “Policja”, “Polkomtel”, “Orange”, “T-Mobile”, “PLAY” will be rejected.
