Bulk SMS [UPDATE] Airtel Uganda SMS Services Outage

We have received communication from Airtel indicating there's a government directive that was issued barring all Bulk SMS Services.

The directive further states that any exemptions are to be given on a case by case basis and considerations will only be for Transactional type of messages.

We are in communication with Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) to seek exemptions as well as seek alternatives for the issue.
