Singapore: SMS Features and Restrictions

Sender ID:

Sender ID is dynamic to all networks, however we are using Adaptive Routing throughout Singapore so sender may occasionally be overwritten to ensure delivery. Adaptive Routing will consistently test a number of routes and ensure the optimum one is selected to deliver your traffic.


Money lending:

A new law was recently introduced in Singapore which makes it illegal to advertise or promote money-lending services. The Singaporean authorities are aggressively pursuing any offenders. The details can be found in the link below:
