Canadians Send 200M Text Messages Each Day

Texting is probably the most common method people use for instant communication. And why wouldn’t they use it? With virtually all new plans coming up with unlimited texting, we doubt if there is anyone who can keep his hands off of his phone. So, how many times do you text in a day? How many text messages do you think are sent in Canada each day?

According to some statistics released by Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association (CWTA), it’s over a whopping 200 million!

In 2009 Canadians sent 35 billion messages. The number grew to more than 56 billion text messages in 2010 – a 60% increase. And Canadians have sent 18 billion text messages in the first quarter of 2011 alone, a 10% growth from the fourth quarter of 2010! By the looks of it, the number of text messages sent this year will go well over 70 billion (or even 80 billion?)!
