UPC Switzerland sees mobile calls nearly double

Thursday 9 April 2020 | 09:24 CET | News
UPC Switzerland said it has recorded an increase in mobile telephony of 90-100 percent since the start of the Covid-19 crisis. On its fixed network, download traffic is up just 1 percent, while the upload traffic has jumped 38 percent since the beginning of the crisis. UPC believes that the growth was caused by an increasing number of people working from home. The small increase in downloads may be compensated by the decision of Netflix to reduce the quality of its streams.
