About 2halves

2halves.co.uk is, as we currently believe, the cheapest Football SMS Alert service on the internet. We'd be interested to hear if there is one cheaper.

Its now run by a small group of football supporters in Basingstoke and is constantly sending out a few hundred texts per game. This is increasing all the time.

The aim of 2halves is to provide a premium service at an economy price. We believe the services currently offered on the internet are over charged and hope that by us offering the same service at a fraction of the price (see chart below) we can prise people away from the premium services or encourage these big comapnies to reduce their charges!

We are always looking for ways to improve the service, if you have any suggestions on ways to improve please do contact us. We are very keen to make this service as good as it can get.

 

Below is a chart comparing some current services with our service. These figures are based on three teams from the 2007/2008 Premiership league.

Below, is a comparison of what you would have paid last season for 2halves service compared to the same number of text from one of the many 25p per text service. The least you would have saved would have been £22.25, if you were a Man City fan. Being a Spurs fan you would have saved £31.75!

But, there is more to it than that. As the premium services charge on a ‘per text’ basis, it is in their interest to send as many texts as possible. Which they do. Check some of their sites out and they will tell you themselves that they will send 10-13 texts per week. That’s a massive 494 texts, costing over £123!
