Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

UK mobile messaging firm Xwireless has gone titsup. A terse notice on the firm's website confirms that the Stockley Park, Heathrow-based company has "ceased trading" and that all relevant parties will be contacted in due course.

Xwireless was founded in 2000, to provide mobile business services, focusing on SMS network services and associated technologies, to corporate and SMEs. It was led by entrepreneur Nigel Harte, but he left the company in January, 2004. Customers included Scandinavian telco Sonera, opticians chain David Clulow, UK National Milk Records and London charity Volunteering Lewisham.

The firm's phones (0870 77 00 470) have been switched over to an answerphone carrying the same message. What went wrong with its business remains unclear. At time of writing XWireless's directors have not responded to our request for comment. ®
