What happens to unregistered 10DLC traffic on March 31 for the SMS-iT Cloud Version?

What's happening?

In late 2022 on several occasions, we communicated that SMS-iT Cloud Version will no longer support unregistered 10DLC traffic after March 31, 2023. As we approach this target date, we would like to provide you with additional information to ensure a smooth transition for your business messaging needs. The US messaging ecosystem is rapidly changing, as evidenced by the March 1 announcement of AT&T increasing their surcharge rates for unregistered traffic, and we think that you can generally expect this trend to continue for 10DLC as a whole.

So what does that mean for you, and what happens on March 31 when we no longer support unregistered traffic? Read on for more detail:

1) Speed of Registration

SMS-iT is an official member of the Campaign Registry. This implies that your 10DLC registration process would be completed very quickly, and faster than most of our competitors, as we don't use a third party for this process. Once you register your 10DLC with SMS-iT, it would be automatically submitted for registration at the Campaign Registry once you hit submit on your SMS-iT Cloud Version account. This tremendously speeds up your 10DLC registration process.

2) Level of support

Unregistered 10DLC traffic will be reclassified as “best effort” and will not be eligible for any SLAs. This means we will not escalate with our downstream vendors and/or carriers if the traffic gets blocked or throttled while it is unregistered.

Registered traffic will not be affected, and it will continue to be supported in the same manner that it is today.

3) Current SMS-iT customers

The industry's goal is 100% registration. However, we understand the new requirements around registration are taxing on your business and that flexibility is a must for onboarding new customers, testing, and understanding unique use cases. Therefore, we are committed to supporting you throughout the registration process.

For customers that demonstrate a path towards registration, Bandwidth will work with you beyond our March 31 target. Non-registered traffic will continue to be subject to increased carrier fees.

If you have questions about 10DLC registration, please contact us at our live chat or [email protected] to discuss this further.

4) Industry changes

On March 1, 2023, SMS-iT announced new fees from AT&T with regard to unregistered 10DLC traffic.

The combined efforts of Customers, Carriers, and Aggregators will help us fight the harmful impacts that Fraudulent and SPAM messages have on the messaging ecosystem.

What do I need to do?

If you haven’t already, please start registering your 10DLC traffic directly in your SMS-iT Cloud Version account, by clicking on 10DLC registration at the dropdown navigation, at the right of the page underneath your name in your SMS-iT Cloud Version account. Follow our 10DLC Best Practices guide to set your business up for success and to get your campaigns up and running faster.

For your 10DLC monthly fee of $10, we would automate the process by March 31st.
