FASTSMS Network Coverage
Fastsms international network coverage delivers SMS messages to most countries across the world using the best routes available. We work with experienced SMS aggregators for the more unusual destinations with premium direct connections in key territories. Things can change rapidly so we are constantly monitoring our international messaging and looking for new and more effective ways of delivering SMS.
As a general rule international messages, other than UK and Ireland, use 2 message credits per SMS so cost a maximum of 7p to send. However if you anticipate sending large numbers of texts to a particular destination it is worth checking with us as we can often negotiate a better price for bulk messaging.
