Texting in Canada is still on the rise. The Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association (CWTA) recently announced that in Q1 Canadians sent 18 billion text messages. March had the highest stats in history with just over 6 billion, or an average of 199 million messages per day.
Today, in response to a report that showed the average American adult sends/receives 41.5 text messages per day, TELUS has stated that Canadian text messaging is on the rise too. TELUS Communications Manager Shawn Hall said that based on their estimations the number of text messages Canadians now send on a monthly basis has skyrocketed to 8 billion, which represents 270 million per day. Currently there are over 24.5 million wireless subscribers in Canada.
