What % of text messages fail?

I doubt networks will be very forthcoming about this! But what % of text messages get lost in the ether?

I send thousands each month and I'd say no more than about 5 get "lost", before the recipient has got it. There are no official figures available as the networks would never admit a percentage figure. Also, it depends on how good your signal is, messages often fail when there is a weak signal as the phone gets half way through sending the message and then loses signal so can't complete the sending process.
