Google Voice Text Message (SMS) Delay

Okay Google, I reeeeeally like your Google Voice service. But there’s absolutely no way I can deal with such huge delays in your text message delivery system.
My housemate has slept a total of 2 hours in the past 3 days. Knowing this, I txt’d him this morning to see if he made it to work. Here’s our conversation, with a Google Voice time stamp at the end of each line.

He sent me a text message at 9:17, and I didn’t receive it until 10:10.

Google, this is completely unacceptable. The entire point of text messaging is that messages are supposed to be small, quick, and easy to immediately respond to. With delays close to a full hour, what’s the point of even using Google Voice for SMS?
