Bandwidth has a rate limiting system for every account with Messaging APIs. To ensure that you get the best possible results while delivering your messages at appropriate industry standard rates, it is important to understand how the Bandwidth rate limiting engine works.

Every new account has the following default rate limit settings for testing purposes. The default rate limit is the same for SMS and MMS: 1 message per second (MPS).  Please contact your client development manager to request increased limits for high-volume messaging. 

Scope Rate Limit Description Default
Account Outbound dequeue rate The rate that Bandwidth will send your messages to the downstream carriers across your entire account.

P2P - 1 MPS

A2P - ∞, up to account limit

Per-Number Outbound dequeue rate The rate that Bandwidth will send your messages from a single phone number to the downstream carriers

P2P - 1 MPS

A2P - ∞, up to account limit
