“With high-quality messaging, short and long codes, voice and multiple options, HelloTech makes a difference among standard SMS providers within TCXC market”

Initially, HelloTech will offer SMS MT services for Singapore MSISDNs. We understand the complexity and effort required to map native number ranges to MCCMNC because there are 1,543 at this time! Even having done that, customers have to concern themselves with the very high proportion of ported-out subscribers in this mature market. We take care of all of that for you as each of our routes covers all 4 MNOs and all 12 MVNOs. In “Market View”, search using “Seller is like HELLOTECH” and our 4 routes will appear as 8 entries because Singapore mobiles either have prefix 658 or 659. Make sure to add at least one of each for full Singapore coverage. These are immediately available for members to interconnect and utilize with a click:

  • ALL SG telcos 1A: full coverage to Singapore MSISDNs from our datacentre #1
  • ALL SG telcos 1B: full coverage to Singapore MSISDNs from datacentre #1 server #2
  • ALL SG telcos 2A: full coverage to Singapore MSISDNs from our datacentre #2
  • ALL SG telcos 2B: full coverage to Singapore MSISDNs from datacentre #2 server #2

All HelloTech rates and stats are immediately available to all members via portal and API, we’ll cover how to programmatically access HelloTech through the API in this blog post. For customers who are fulfilling high SLA requirements, we strongly recommend you use TCXC’s excellent Routing Group feature to add 4 to 8 of our Route/Prefix combinations, at least 2 with Prefix 658 and another 2 with Prefix 659. While data centre connectivity issues are rare, layering your connectivity to our geographically isolated servers will ensure that you ride the rare glitches without even feeling it.
