The pandemic has provoked a sharp increase in Internet traffic in the world

Internet traffic has tripled. In particular, the UN website notes that COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically changed our lives around the world. Therefore, the so-called “digital divide” became even more noticeable. After all, 3.6 billion people worldwide still do not have access to the Internet.

If before broadband was most often used in city offices, now it is increasingly in demand in the suburbs and rural areas. Their residents now study or work without leaving home.

The International Telecommunication Union praised the role of information and communication technology workers. “We must also recognize that ICT services and networks are not so easy to manage in the current environment. After all, no one could have imagined a situation where traffic on the Internet could almost rise three times,” the organization said.
