Utel’s bet: to develop France’s biggest mobile phone-based chat community! In March 2003, the company launched “Fotochat”, the first service to leverage the photo sharing capabilities of the new generation of handsets. This enabled users to get their pictures online in a matter of seconds via a simple e-mail or MMS. The system is based entirely on MySQL and processes an average of 3,000 queries per second and handles 10,000 queries per second at peak times!
