Malacanang has finally decided that it will not pursue a new tax on text messaging.

The government was forced to abandon its plans to impose a tax on text messages due to an SMS revolt led by TxtPower yesterday. TxtPower called on all Filipino texters to send the text message, NO TO TEXT TAX! directly to Sec. Peter Favila’s mobile phone number at 09178176110.

In less than a day, Malacanang, through Press Secretary Ignacio Bunye, said that it will not pursue a new tax on text messaging.
