Fast, Resilient, Low Cost and Low Energy

PageOne provides a paging service on a low, fixed cost monthly fee regardless of the amount of messages sent in the month (fair use policy does apply). This means that the communications costs are fixed and the costs will NOT increase if the usage increases, unlike many other communications services. This makes paging messaging services one of the most cost-effective forms of mobile communications available today.

Each Pager uses a single AAA battery that will last typically up to 3 months at a time so there is no need to charge the pager each night, and the pager is always on waiting to receive a message.

Fast Delivery

PageOne’s paging network is a broadcast network and does not store and forward messages in the way that GSM networks do. Once the message has been accepted by PageOne it is sent over its broadcast network within 30 seconds regardless of the time of day, or even during special public events. PageOne also has a service called Accelerate which increases the speed of delivery to less than 15 seconds.

Resilient and Reliable

The PageOne paging network is designed to be resilient providing a very high level of availability (typically more than 99.95%) with a large coverage area over the UK (more than 98% of the population) using radio waves that easily penetrate buildings making the paging service both resilient and reliable.

Broadcast and Group Calling

PageOne pagers can be set up with common receiving addresses called Group Calls so that they can all simultaneously receive a common message which has been broadcast over the paging network. Group Calls are in very common use in the paging network making the communication of information to groups of people very simple and fast in comparison to other messaging solutions and technologies. This broadcast and Group Call ability makes paging unique in the messaging world.


Paging has been around for a long time and has therefore developed and evolved its integration methods to be the most robust and simple to implement. See a full list of our integration methods and API’s to enable your back office systems and computers to send paging messaging into PageOne for broadcasting over its paging network.


Pagers are very small devices that are usually worn on the person and as such can be very discrete and unobtrusive. All pagers have a silent or vibration message tone option, making them suitable for most sensitive environments.
