Mothers Day is one of the busiest days of the year for SaskTel in Saskatchewan.
This year they are expecting people to place almost 400,000 long distance calls.
They are also expecting people to send or receive more than 12 million text messages.
Greg Jacobs, a spokesperson for SaskTel, advises people to avoid peak call times between 10 A.M. and 2 P.M. as well as 7:30 P.M. to 10 P.M. to avoid busy signals.
Two years ago customers send approximately 6.8 million text messages.
