55 Million SMS sent per day in UK, during August 2003
Posted on 27-Sep-2003 09:48. | Tags Filed under: News.

The Mobile Data Association announced that the total number of chargeable person-to-person text messages sent across the four UK GSM networks reached 55 million per day during August 2003. This compares to UK daily averages of 45 million in August 2002 and 34 million in August 2001. August's figure takes the cumulative total for 2003 to 13.3 Billion, against a 12 month MDA forecast for the year of 20 Billion, which allows for Summer slowdown and seasonal trends.

SMS users in UK sent a total of 1.69 billion texts throughout August 2003.
