LONDON, United Kingdom – October 9th, 2008

MX Telecom, the leading provider of global SMS text messaging and wireless multimedia solutions, has today released The UK Regulatory Guide, a comprehensive and practical guide to compliance and best practice for mobile service providers.

The Guide clarifies in one document the key regulatory requirements and best practice related to the provision of mobile services; incorporating the requirements of bodies including PhonepayPlus, the UK Mobile Network Operators, The Information Commissioner's Office and The Gambling Commission.

Sections include Clarification of STOP Command Requirements, The Advertising of Premium Rate Services, SMS Subscription Services, Payforit, Location Based Services and Gambling Services.

Alex Moir, MX Telecom Managing Director said: "We believe that the presence of several regulatory bodies and Codes of Practice in third party mobile telecommunications have made it increasingly difficult for service providers to design and promote services which, as well being fully compliant, promote best practice and the best possible end user experience.

"We are hopeful that bringing this disparate information together in the MX Telecom UK Regulatory Guide will provide an effective source of reference for addressing these concerns amongst existing service providers. Furthermore, for those new to, or looking to enter the market, it provides a comprehensive overview of fully compliant service design and operation".

The Guide is available to download from the MX Telecom website and will be re-issued in line with any regulatory developments to ensure it remains an accurate and up-to-date authority on the compliant provision of phone paid services.
