Users send 58 billion text messages in China every month
China is the country with the largest population in the world. Having the largest number of inhabitants on the face of the requires a lot of hardware to supply communication within these folks. We don’t know how they do it but according to China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) say their carriers house 1.293 billion subscribers by the end of April 2015.
It’s not the size of customers that draws the big question. It’s the percentage of users in the country. Wikipedia has the exact amount of Chinese population at 1.369 billion and these figures leave the number of mobile subscribers in the country at a overwhelming 94%, leaving out only a paltry few without handsets.
MIIT also states that 58.29 billion text messages monthly, or 1.5 messages per phone number a day, were sent from Chinese phones in April. The same period saw usage of 282,393 terabytes by phone users — that’s about 282 million gigabytes of data sent and downloaded.
Breaking down the number of users by type of network used for accessing the net, 466.30 million (36.06%) frequently used 3G to connect to the WWW while an impressive 177.96 million (13.76%) were hooked up with 4G bands.
