How is the telecom industry coping with COVID-19?
The current COVID pandemic is testing the telecom/ICT industry in many ways, some of which are only just becoming apparent. Increased traffic demand has led the industry to adopt measures to keep services available to people at the time when they need them most. Operators have increased data allowances and broadband speeds and added capacity to their networks. While streaming platforms have decreased their video quality to leave more broadband for essential services.
International days are occasions to educate the public on issues of concern, to mobilize political will and resources to address global problems, and to celebrate and reinforce achievements of humanity. The existence of international days predates the establishment of the United Nations, but the UN has embraced them as a powerful advocacy tool. We also mark other UN observances.
