*Please Note:
  • Alphanumeric sender id cost: KES 10,000 (*This is a one-off cost per telco per alphanumeric sender id)
  • Airtel identifies traffic as international when your sender Id represents a brand that terminates messages to more than one country. That means that if you are sending messages from Kenya to an Airtel subscriber in any other country, then that message will be identified as international.
  • Up to 160 characters is considered one message. Anything exceeding that will be counted as new message.
  • Also note that using special characters affects your character count and one SMS will be 70 characters instead of 160 characters.
