Happy New Year: One Hundred Million Times

“People in sent more than 100 million Short Message Service (SMS) and Multimedia Message Service (MMS) messages during the New Year’s holiday.

The estimates were made by the third largest wireless firms: Advance Info Service known as AIS, Total Access Communication or DTAc, and True Move.

Market leader AIS alone said that on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, its users sent about 50 million short text messages popularly called SMS. They also sent about a million more colourful – and more expensive – multimedia messages with photos, sounds and varied fonts.”

The above is the article from Bangkok post. I was quite amazed at this figure. Just one day and one hundred million SMS and MMS messages! I am just surprised that the telephone networks are not jammed due to the amount of traffic. Apparently, New Year Day is a very good day for the mobile phone companies.
