High text message usage in the UK
Posted on 27-Nov-2004 10:21 | Tags Filed under: News



October 2004 has seen the highest ever total of text messages, recording an all time high of 2.3 billion messages sent, according to figures released by the Mobile Data Association (MDA). Person-to-person texts sent across the UK GSM network operators last month show an increase of 27% on the total sent during the same period in 2003, with 74 million messages being sent per day and more than 41 messages for every customer in the UK.

The announcement came the same day that the Rt. Hon Tony Blair MP became the first UK Prime Minister to use text message technology to talk directly to the people. Members of the public have been able to submit questions in advance by text message or ask the Prime Minister a question in real time in a mobile phone chatroom, transmitted live from No 10 Downing Street.
