Skytel taps Web for paging services

Published on .

It may not be as easy as typing in a number on a telephone keypad, but Skytel Corp. is now letting people send text or numeric pages via the World Wide Web. Users must go to Skytel's site and use an electronic form to enter in a message, recipient ID number and type of pager. No word on how fast the message is sent, but you can specify that a return message be sent to an e-mail address, effectively bypassing the traditional telephone entirely.
