Mobile network EE has revealed traffic on its 5G network grew by 40 per cent month-on-month between October and December 2020 as YouTube and Netflix become increasingly popular.
YouTube, Facebook, Netflix and Instagram took the top spots as the most popular apps and services on EE’s 5G network, and month on month have seen traffic grow by at least 30 per cent.
According to EE”s Mobile Network Index report, 5G traffic almost doubled across the three months.
Marc Allera, CEO of BT’s Consumer Division, said: “As we roll out the 5G network to more places, it’s clear that customers are starting to use it more and are making the most of its faster speeds and reliable performance. With more 5G devices arriving on the market and the network available in 125 towns and cities across the UK, it’s interesting to see inhabitants of London, Birmingham and Manchester emerging as the most popular users of 5G on our mobile network, with video streaming remaining as popular as ever.”
