Kenya SMS Features and Restrictions
All Alpha Sender IDs must be registered with the Network Operators or will be overwritten to ensure delivery. This can be done through your account manager.
Numeric Sender IDs will be overwritten to NXSMS to ensure delivery for all networks.
Network Telkom Kenya only allows registered Alpha sender ID, unregistered Alpha Sender ID and numeric sender ID won't be delivered.
There are no additional content restrictions beyond those in our Acceptable Use Policy.
Other Features or Restrictions
Delivery Receipts are supported except for Airtel, where they are network receipts rather than handset receipts. There are substantial DLR Delays from the Kenya operators at most times so DLR latency should not be used to measure delivery time.
