Oxygen8 Announces New SMS Bulk Rates

Bulk text messages cover over 700 Carriers from just 1.1p per message


Global micro-billing, communications and mobile enablement specialist, Oxygen8
Communications today announces its new SMS bulk rates for UK media companies and corporates who are
looking to send bulk text messages in order to maximise revenues from mobile
marketing activities internationally.

Gary Corbett, Commercial Director at Oxygen8
Communications, says, "As bulk volumes continue to soar we have seen customers
increasingly sending bulk text messages globally. As a result pricing for wholesale
international SMS continues to decrease, creating new business opportunities for
any company that is looking to expand their international business activities."

Corbett continues, "The new SMS bulk rates are accompanied by the
functionality of the Oxygen8 Mobile platform, which is very scalable and is able
to handle hundreds of messages per second and hundreds of connections, enabling
customers to increase billing collections and bottom-line profits by utilising
bulk text messages. This means that companies can be managing sophisticated
international campaigns in just minutes, whilst resellers are able to build
applications and standalone business based on the capabilities of the

Key features of the Oxygen8 Mobile platform include:

  • Creation of interactive services
  • Integration via simple APIs
  • Scheduled sends
  • Advanced scheduling  – managing rate and capacity of sends
  • Dynamic headers
  • Dashboard reporting

Corbett concludes, "We want our customers to be able to grow their business
quickly and easily either within their domestic markets or across the globe. In
today’s world that means having a resilient platform but with the flexibility
that is required to adapt services to the increasingly sophisticated and complex
way that consumers interact with new media. With the Oxygen8 platform,
accompanied by our new SMS bulk rates, this becomes possible."

Oxygen8 Communications has set a target of growing 60% in the next two years,
building on its strong performance in 2009. Turnover in the last six months of
2009 was 20% up on the previous year. Whilst core markets such as the UK have
seen an increase of 10%, emerging markets, particularly in Africa, are seeing triple digit growth.
