High Quality / HQ SMS

Pareteum’s HQ SMS product offers high quality messaging at a lower price than Direct SMS. While Direct SMS tends to offer better quality messaging than HQ SMS, the difference is often negligible and, in many countries, practically non-existent. In countries where there is a difference in messaging quality, Pareteum ensures lower prices via the intelligent, carrier-grade messaging platform. HQ SMS is an excellent option for businesses that require high quality, but cost-efficient, messaging capabilities.

Pareteum’s Wholesale SMS product, which offers multiple types of SMS routes and SS7 connections, leverages the Pareteum Messaging platform for automated least-cost routing. As such, it provides the best price for single operator destinations. Wholesale SMS is most popular among partner aggregators and other businesses looking to save on messaging costs via single destination routes.
