The Guardian Unlimited reports that Brits sent a massive 57 billion text messages last year. In December alone almost 5,000 text messages were sent per second.

That number represents a 40% increase in the amount of text messages sent in 2006 when only 448 million were sent in the UK.

The data also shows that more people are adapting plans and sending text messages proving lower cost plans are more appealing to the British. “Mobile voice took off because it lets individuals do what they've always done and wanted to do, the way they've always done, but, with mobile, wherever and whenever they want. The same is becoming true of mobile internet," according to Jim Hyde, UK boss of T-Mobile. "In time, broadband mobile will be individuals' primary way of accessing the internet - and it will have a greater impact than even mobile voice has had."
