The network operators (MTN, GLO, ETISALAT and AIRTEL) released a statement recently about an imminent increase in the cost price of bulk SMS. Since we do not work independently of these providers, this might also lead to a corresponding increase in the price of bulk SMS units.
While the exact reason for this was not fully explained, we have every reason to believe this has to do with the current dwindling economy which has affected every aspect of the Nigerian market.
WHEN WILL THIS INCREASE TAKE EFFECT?
The particular date when this change will take effect is not known. The operators though gave every hint it will be very soon, in the coming weeks or possibly the coming days. We have every reason to believe then that it is imminent.
WHAT WILL THE NEW PRICING PLAN BE?
As with the date of commencement, this is also not known as of now. We promise to contact everyone through SMS and our social media platforms as soon as it becomes certain. Be rest assured though that the increase in bulk SMS units will be a direct proportion to the increase from the network operators, if at all that takes place.
Since satisfaction for all our clients is our utmost concern, we will suggest you use this window period to stock up your bulk SMS account with SMS units at the current pricing plan, until the envisaged change takes effect.
We apologize for any inconveniences this might cause you and promise to update you as soon as we get more details on this. Thank you for choosing SmartSMSSolutions, the bulk SMS gateway specifically designed for you.
