The Q. to ask to ensure you pick an SMS provider who best fits your requirements: Part 2

Look out for the final part of this three part feature on Friday, and  if you missed part one you can read it here

What connection does your SMS Operator use?

Ideally you want to pick a SMS operator who connects through a UK SMS gateway. It is much better to use an SMS provider within the country you are sending the texts from. For example, if you pick a provider from outside the UK SMS gateway it is likely to reflect with a bad delivery report with many texts failing to get through to the recipient as the text has had to pass through different networks before being received, making it a timely process.
