Slovak Telekom breaks data record for music festival Pohoda

Thursday 12 July 2018 | 09:09 CET | News
During this year's summer music festival Pohoda, customers of Slovak Telekom transferred nearly 4 TB data, of which 3.18 TB (80 percent) went over LTE network, double the volume sent in 2017. Interestingly, the share of uploads compared with downloads is growing: this year, uploads made up 17 percent of the total data volume compared with 13 percent in 2017. The trend may be attributed to people sending pictures and videos and live streaming from the event.
