We have been provided a long code from Salesforce, as it appears to be needed for international messaging. From reading general websites regarding the pros/cons for short codes vs. long codes, there is one particular item I've seen posted that has me a bit worried:
Finally, the messaging throughput with long codes is slower than a sloth creeping down a tree for his afternoon snack. In fact, leading providers can still only send 1 message per second on a long code. That makes sending a messaging blast to a one million person database an 11 day adventure.
Is it true that SMS messages sent with a long code will be that much slower than a short code, or is MobileConnect somehow able to bypass this limitation?
