December 26, 2006
Vodafone processed 181 million SMS

Lisbon, 26 December 2006 – Vodafone processed 181 million SMS between 22 and 25 December, an all-time record for the number of text messages processed on its network over the Christmas period and an increase of 39% on the same period last year.

Vodafone’s text message service processed around 1800 SMS a second at the peak of traffic between 6 pm and 7 pm on 24 December.

In spite of the high volumes of traffic over the Christmas period, the processing of voice calls and delivery of text messages ran totally smoothly on the Vodafone network. Recent capacity increases on the voice network and the doubling of the capacity of the SMS (text message) platform contributed to this.
