By the end of November, the country’s 5.1 million people had already sent 4.6 billion texts, according to telecoms operator Telenor.

With the text-happy Christmas and New Year holiday seasons approaching, Telenor believes Norwegians will pass the five-billion mark for the year.

“In October 451 million text messages were sent. That’s the highest level we’ve ever measured in a single month, and it’s business solutions that are generating an enormous growth,” said Bjørn Ivar Moen, head of Telenor Norway’s mobile division.
