Ireland gets new premium SMS services from txtNation

The Republic of Ireland now enjoys new premium SMS services thanks to txtNation, a global premium rate billing services company. With more flexible tariffs, txtNation builds on its popular SMS connectivity platform mBILL, empowering everyone with enhanced premium services in Ireland.

New for 2010 will be five and ten euro tariffs, ideal for more specialised premium SMS services, and are both available across all Irish mobile operators. Since launch, these new tariffs are already proving popular.

The new tariffs are an ideal complement to existing Ireland premium SMS price points, allowing higher consumer billing across Vodafone, 02, Meteor and Network 3. txtNation boasts a streamlined setup and approval process, resulting in faster time to market for clients looking to enter the lucrative Irish premium rate market.

Michael Whelan, director of txtNation, said: “These new tariffs, in particular the higher price point, will gain momentum over time, resulting in better acceptance. As of now we are one of only a handful of aggregators with these higher consumer tariffs.”

Together with new tariffs, txtNation has launched an updated set of guidelines and internal procedures to guarantee compliance with changing industry regulations. In the face of many new developments in the mobile billing space, and ever-increasing customer awareness, txtNation is taking proactive steps to enhance consumer confidence.

In addition, txtNation is fully engaged in defining new measures to bolster such confidence, taking into account the new payment and billing services currently being introduced.
