The Mobile Data Association (MDA) announced that the total number of chargeable person-to-person text messages sent across the four UK GSM networks reached 1.73 billion during September 2003. September's figure marks the highest monthly total since the MDA began collating data on behalf of the UK network operators in 1998.
