The MDA reckons we’re burning through our free text allowance at a rate of 200 million text messages a day, which, by my maths, is nearly four texts per person every day – a rise of 30% over the number we sent last year.
To make these figures sound even more impressive, that works out as 1.4 billion text messages a week. Mostly about what’s for dinner and if you’re on the train yet or not. We also send 1.5 million photo messages a day, some of which aren’t of genitalia.
There is no data regarding how many video calls we make. Presumably because no one made any during the period being monitored.
