Telefonica has revealed that traffic growth on its Spanish fixed-line network in the month between the start of the country's coronavirus lockdown and 12 April was equivalent to that of 2019 as a whole. The operator's IP network saw traffic surge by 35 percent from 10 March to 12 April due to increased use for remote working, online education, streaming and gaming, compared to the 30 percent accumulated growth usually recorded over a period of 12 months, said Telefonica.
