Fast, fully-managed fixed line text messaging

Add value for your customers

Wholesale Fixed Line Text lets your customers send and receive SMS messages easily on their fixed line phone. It works even if they don’t have an SMS-enabled handset – they can still receive texts on a standard fixed line.

Taking texting above and beyond

With Wholesale Fixed Line Text, SMS messages originating on mobile networks such as O2, EE or Vodafone can be terminated on any UK fixed line. SMS-enabled handsets on Openreach, WLR3 and ISDN can send text messages to UK mobile or fixed lines.

Texts sent can include a combination of words, numbers and symbols. A single short message can be up to 160 characters long, using default GSM alphabet coding.
