Did you send someone a text wishing them a happy New Year? If you did, thank you – you helped give the UK the friendliest 24 hours it’s ever seen!

We’re all about connecting people here at O2 and so we’re really happy when we help people connect to the people and things they love. On New Year’s Eve we saw more people do that than ever before – O2 customers sent and received more than 280 million text messages between 07:10 on New Year’s Eve and 07:10 on New Year’s Day. That’s more than ever – in fact it’s over 20% more than we’ve ever sent and received before.

Did you send or receive a message between those times? What was the best message you saw this New Year’s Eve? Let us know in the comments!
