Canadians love to text. New stats from the CWTA (Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association) reveals a record number of text messages were sent in Q2 2012. Consistent with the rise in previous quarters, Q2 witnessed over 23.8 billion text messages were sent by Canadians, up from the 19.5 billion texts in Q2 2011.
The CWTA also noted that “More than 8 billion person-to-person text messages were sent in June 2012 alone, which represents an average of approximately 267.8 million messages per day.” Combining the 23.3 billion texts sent in Q1 with the record Q2 brings the total to over 74.1 billion.
