A recent US study has revealed that the Philippines is the the World’s Text Messaging Capital.
According to the report that compiled data from Reuters, the New York Times, CTIA.org, UPI.com, Pew Research, Kvue.com, Matzav.com, and Portio Research, the average Filipino mobile subscriber sent an average of 600 text messages per month, or 43 percent more than their US counterparts.
