[liberationtech] bulk sms

Hello:

I have used multiple services. I currently use esendex as an SMS
sender provider, which is a spanish company (I'm from Spain). We have
used other services. Some important facts:
* sending SMS to most of the countries costs the same
* if you don't care if some messages don't reach their destination or
take hours, then go for the cheapest provider. that's good for sending
publicity for example. In the other hand, if you do care about the SMS
reaching always to the destination, and if you want that to happen
fast, then find a quality provider. In my experience esendex is good
(they specialized in that, for example in sending "sms authentication
codes"), but there are probably other better providers in other
countries.
* the providers might be able to send 20-50 sms/second. You could
scale to do more by using multiple providers at the same time.

There are other services specialised in sending SMS, Amazon for
example http://docs.aws.amazon.com/sns/latest/dg/SMSMessages.html
those I haven't used yet.

Regards,
