SMS and the Olympics

2sms provides a robust platform for messaging with a high volume of spare capacity to handle additional messages sent by our customers during peak times such as the Olympic Games. 

We are reliant upon the mobile networks such as O2, Vodafone and Orange (among others) to deliver these messages to the mobile phones registered on their networks. 

We have tested our platform to ensure it will be able to cope with additional capacity but are subject to the networks’ preparations at the delivery end to ensure messages go through.

2sms cannot expedite messages through a network, but can only submit messages to them for them to deliver. Users should expect that during peak times messages may take longer to deliver to UK mobile phones as the networks will have higher volumes of traffic to process. Messages to other countries will remain unaffected.
