Based on what you asked for: BBN today announces a very important improvement in the Developer’s Central which has obviously become more resourceful both to developers and enterprises from different interest points.

Over the weekend, three successful upgrades were added to the BBN Developers Central

Detailed documentation on these features is available at the Developers Central:

Generally speaking, it shouldn’t take a PHP Developer five minutes to complete the integration because the SDK has been packaged with very simple sample code and instruction on how to get the integration running ASAP.

However, if at any point you find out you are seriously lost in a code maze and really need help a support email has been added to the Technical Support section of the HTTP API documentation.

How many bulk sms platforms can look you straight in the eye and give you guarantee of 96.7 % delivery for sms you broadcast to Nigerian networks using  their platform? We’ve got that confidence.

Since the past 1 year,  when the MTN filter saga began, we have been thoroughly searching for the most effective routes that can delivery your sms messages and guarantee high delivery ratio. We’ve experimented several routes and had different results.

We’ve finally reached that point and we’re not going back.  Since August 14th BBN SMS team has constantly tested delivery ratios for all your messages and on the average we got 96.7% delivery. This means a rare case of failure delivery for messages you pass through our gateway.

Look out for the following updates

  1. Filter on spam words such as ‘congratulations’, ‘winner’, ‘million’, etc has been removed and we have put in place a more reliable spam filter system that ensures “the good guy doesn’t get punished for the bad guy’s sin”.

  2. We have also returned the routing cost for sms to MTN network to 1 unit per page as against the former 1.5 unit per page. And a video was released to this effect.
