It’s hard to believe that just 15 years ago we had no YouTube, Instagram, WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, Netflix, Amazon Prime or Hulu. These apps fundamentally changed the way we consume and disseminate news and information. The major trend away from consuming texts and photographs towards streaming video especially on mobile phones, is moving quickly.
The recent need, driven by the pandemic, for mass homeworking, with Zoom, Teams and many other new apps rapidly coming into play has created a huge spike in bandwidth demand and user demand for high quality communications. And the situation isn’t likely to change – many firms are predicting a long-term shift to more homeworking that ever before envisaged.
