While Root indicates changes of customer preferences. The fact that the current volume of traffic is more typical for holidays and weekends.

“We do see a significant increase in the load on the network and especially the traffic growth in the use of home Internet in large cities and especially in Moscow, where fixed networks traffic increased by 30%,” – said a top Manager.

While MTS and MGTS cope with the load, but network bandwidth is a limited resource even in Russia, which is ahead of many countries in quality of infrastructure. Therefore, the Root requests to restrict the sending of “heavy” videos and memes.

When the number of such videos is growing exponentially – it creates an optional, but a large load on the infrastructure operators. Memes and good mood are important, but now to the content consumption in networks need to be responsible!” he said.
