We released a new version of our Captive Portal solution for UniFi networks today which boasts a range of cool new features and improvements. Support for other SMS Gateways in addition to the existing native Twilio integration is probably of interest to those clients that are located in areas where Twilio support is lacking or to others who are looking for more freedom of choice.
