Managing Networks in Unprecedented Times – Part 3

This is the third installment of CWTA’s series of reports looking at the traffic volumes on Canadian telecommunications networks during the COVID-19 pandemic (see here and here for parts one and two). Looking at traffic volumes for June and July of this year, this report shows that Canadians continue to utilize telecommunication services at higher rates than before COVID-19. The gradual relaxation of mobility restrictions across the country are reflected in the increase in mobile network traffic, with median wireless traffic exceeding pre-COVID-19 levels. Meanwhile, despite some businesses and public spaces reopening, wireline traffic volumes continue to show that many Canadians are still relying heavily on home internet services to stay connected to their workplaces, families, and friends.
