Pakistan Ranks #4 in SMS Usage
PCWorld recently carried a story which showed that Pakistan ranks fourth in terms of number of SMS traffic. Over the 2008/2009 Christmas/New Year period, we sent a total of 763 million (yes, that’s right!) text messages. And we don’t even celebrate Christmas! (well I celebrate everything but most people in Pakistan view it as a Western/Christian festival- not one of our own).
The story also says that Pakistan also had the highest year-on-year growth for SMS messages…growing by an amazing 253 percent compared to the same period last year. Power outages and other challenges aside, we continue to create records – in this case with text messages!
P.S. Unfortunately, someone at PCWorld needs to correct the title of the story – at the time of this posting it says “County” instead of “Country”.
