Text Capital of the World

Did you know that the Philippines is considered as the “text capital of the world”? In 2006, with an estimated 35 million cell phone subscribers, the Philippines sent about 350 to 400 million SMS (Short Message Service) or text messages daily – a figure which outnumbered the total daily text messages sent in the U.S. and Europe combined.

Not to be outdone, in 2007, the Chinese sent an average of 1.6 billion text messages daily with more than 500 million cell phone users. However, with only 50 million cell phone users – a mere tenth of the number of Chinese cell phone users – Filipinos were still able to send an average of a billion text messages daily. This means that even though the Chinese sent more text messages in total, they send an average of only 3 text messages per cell phone per day. And the Filipinos? They send an average of 20 text messages per cell phone user per day. Mabuhay!
