Chinese send 429 billion SMS and India doubled its mobile subscribers in 2006

In China, mobile users sent 429 billion text messages, an equivalent of 967 per user, more than any other country reported by Britain's media and telecommunications watchdog Ofcom. But these figures had not accounted for the spammed SMS that Chinese Mobile users get each day so in reality the number of SMS sent out is a whole lot less. But even if those figures were half, its still alot of SMS!

India had grown the fastest adding more mobile subscribers in the year than Britain had in total. Their number of new mobile subscriptions doubled to 150 million during the year -- an increase of more than Britain's total of 70 million mobile connections.
