Short Message Service (SMS) is a text messaging service component of phone, Web, or mobile communication systems.
One useful aspect of SMS is that it allows people to communicate even when the recipient does not have access to the Internet, especially when used in conjunction with Radio broadcasting. According to the World Bank, Mobile Cellular Subscriptions are increasing rapidly and mobile penetration is high even in many areas without access to the Internet. SMS can be used to connect to these populations.
