Can Coronavirus create slowdowns and blocks on internet?
Written by V2Beat on 15/03/2020
These days the Italians are mostly confined to their home due to the quarantine due to the COVID-19 virus.
Many factories and institutions both public and private have strongly recommended working from home with smart working. Many people, therefore, have equipped themselves to exchange large volumes of data from their home. Other applications such as school streaming and videoconferencing have created an increase in the volume of data exchanged that was not foreseen by normal everyday browsing. Updated data from the largest providers show that the bandwidth consumption curve has peaked in the last week since the beginning of the forced quarantine. We at V2BEAT TV also suffer the consequences, the exchange of data packets to the servers is creating many problems for the regularity of the service. To reduce the impact, we had to reduce the content of the video in our streaming channel. You have certainly seen an unusual video page. Unfortunately we do not know what the future holds, so you will apologize for this forced disservice. Despite this, you can always listen to our music with a significantly reduced video window at peak times. We apologize and hope that it will be resolved soon. We await your every comment that will be welcome!
