SMS faster than mobile internet

Add to Technorati Favorites

So last night us U.K citizens enjoyed an earthquake at just after 1am.

As the earthquake gained momentum with the house shaking, i went onto the mobile internet to see what was going on, any reports? No.

Two minutes later i decided to text textperts and i got a quick reply as follows:

66000 We're getting unconfirmed reports of a minor earth tremor across England (Leeds and Manchester down to Surrey) so very likely that.

Very impressive. I then went onto facebook mobile and one of my freinds had just updated her staus 'woken up by earthquake!'.

I then added my textperts knowledge and went back to bed.

All very quick, calm and a lot quicker than the BBC!
