On March 24, 2019, Sparrow SMS, the leading SMS service provider in Nepal turns nine. Over this period, the SMS service provider has served over 15 million users with its SMS services.
Janaki Technology initiated the Sparrow SMS in 2010, with an aim to provide easy access to information to Nepalese through mobile messaging service called SMS. That time, the internet access was a very big thing and was out of reach to the majority of the population. After the proliferation of mobile phones, SMS/text messaging had begun to use as a tool for accessing important information.
Since then, Sparrow SMS became a house hold name for the SMS service. Whenever you ask for a service to send messages to Group, people suggest Sparrow SMS.
Coming this far, Sparrow SMS has grown as the market leader in mobile messaging, and provides SMS services to various government organizations, local level governments, and some of the most well-known brands in Nepal.
