Czechs sent a record number of SMS messages over the Christmas holidays. Operators report 75.2 million messages sent which is 6.7 million more than last year and is an all-time record. People also made 42 million calls to friends and family – four million more than last year. This is being put down to lower tariffs introduced earlier this year and the fact that Czechs are fast abandoning the practice of sending each other hand-written greetings and New Years’ wishes.
