Textfree Users Have Sent And Received 20 Billion Text Messages

It may be hard to believe but some people simply cannot afford the SMS plans that are available on the big networks. But these people needn’t worry, because thanks to services like Textfree, they are able to send unlimited text messages.
Textfree is one of the unique services that allow people via the use of an App, to send text messages to people within the Textfree network. Since launching in 2009, Pinger, the company that manages Textfree has grown significantly and now boasts a staggering 20 billion text messages sent. In fact, the company is growing so fast in recent months that the growth of text messages was exceeding 1 billion a month starting from about March of this year (2011).
Driving the popularity of the App is the fact that a large chunk of users on both Apple’s iOS, and Google’s Android have taken to Textfree as their default texting client. The only downside to the service though, is that one can only send text messages to special numbers assigned once the App is installed. This of course limits the range of people anyone person can text to since the other party needs to have the App installed. Still, 20 billion text messages is not bad at all, and given that Pinger has so far received over $11 billion in funding, the rate of growth should continue well into the future.
