THE INTERNET LOVES A GOOD VOLCANO
Bloomberg gets on the phone and the web to find out just how many more people are using phones and the web to communicate since they can't be there in person. "The shutdown has forced in-person corporate meetings onto audio and video conferencing platforms, prompting a jump in demand for such services from two of the biggest European telecommunication operators. Deutsche Telekom AG, Europe’s largest phone company, has experienced a “significant increase” in demand for conferencing services from large companies, spokesman Dirk Wende said via phone. The company declined to provide figures for the size of the rise. BT Group Plc, the largest U.K. fixed-line phone company, has seen demand for audio and video conferencing from large companies rise an unprecedented 35 percent, a spokesman said April 19. About 80 percent of the demand is for conventional audio conferencing, with the remainder for video, he said."
