About the project

The current self-isolation regime and the rise in teleworking have led to a sharp increase in demands for services provided by telecommunications, media and multi-business Internet providers. Distance learning, mobile and online communication, video conferencing and other digital teleworking services and, finally, entertainment content has led to rapid growth in communications network traffic. This has all led to a substantially increased load on telecommunications infrastructure. Moreover, free access to premium content has boosted consumption even further.
