Telefonica reports 30% increase in Oktoberfest data traffic

Thursday 6 October 2016 | 16:43 CET | News
Telefonica Germany said it set a new record for daily mobile internet traffic during Oktoberfest this year, at over 2 TB. Total data traffic by Telefonica customers at the festival reached over 20,400 GB, an increase of 30 percent from last year. This was first time the company operated an integrated network, after merging O2 and E-Plus. Around 61 percent of data traffic went over the 4G network, helped by a boost in capacity prior to the event. Telefonica said it also saw an increase in upload traffic, suggesting more people are sharing photos and videos over mobile internet.
