O2 customers text happy

According to figures released by the operator, 2007 saw O2 customers send over three billion more SMS and MMS messages than in 2006. With 17.9 million UK customers, O2 claims that its users send over a billion text messages every month.

O2's survey suggests that last year's major sporting events may have led to the surge in text messages, with an increase in traffic occurring during both the cricket (March) and rugby world cups (October), with 65 million text messages being sent on the day of the rugby final featuring England and South Africa.
