    400 million text messages over 120 days with 1.6 million customers. Thats an average of 2 texts per day. Why does that seem low to me

    The kids are all on Meteor?

  3. KPIs for the Q4 period…………. WTF!

    @Dermot: There are ~90 days in a quarter…

    @Dermot
    Q4 has 92 days, not 120. So that’s closer to 3 text per day per customer. I have three O2 sim cards, two of which I don’t use (You know you can get prepay 02 sim cards for free now)! So a 1.6 million customer base doesn’t equal 1.6 million active customers.

    I wonder does the 400 million text messages include the free text messages you can send from their website?
