Coronavirus: Vodafone UK sees 30% rise in data use
Vodafone has said it is experiencing a 30% rise in internet traffic across its UK fixed-line and mobile networks. More people are working from home as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, putting more demand on all networks. TalkTalk, another internet provider, said that its daytime network traffic was 20% higher on Tuesday than Monday. "Our network team is keeping a constant watch on the situation." The forthcoming launch of Disney+ in the UK, which will offer 4K-resolution content, and the BBC's plans to provide classes for children online because of schools being suspended, could therefore put the networks under more strain.
