Virgin Media: ‘Not at data capacity’

Jeanie York, Virgin Media’s Chief Technology and Information Officer, has shared details of how the UK multiplay operator is managing the challenge of the Covid-19 pandemic.

“To make sure we can keep our customers connected, we forecast demand,” she writes in a blog post. “Our busiest times are normally in the evening when people return from work and stream video content, and we are set up for this – we do it every single day. We design our network to cope with periods of very high demand, including traffic spikes during exceptional events.”
