https://github.com/ColdSauce/CosmosBrowserAndroid explains the internet browsing on cell phones using sms or text messaging browsing as:

"After a person inputs a url, our app texts our Twilio number which forwards the URL as a POST request to our Node.JS backend.

The phone receives this stream at a rate of 3 messages per second, orders them, decompresses them, and displays the content."
