INCOMPAS has launched its own network performance website to showcase how its member carriers--it represents competitive (smaller) ISPs and edge providers--are handling pandemic-driven traffic.
The site is based on data from a sample of members over the past 30 days.
INCOMPAS said that residential fiber seen a 25% bump in network bandwidth usage during the daytime compared to pre-COVID-19, which it said members can easily handle.
By contrast, its middle mile members, who provide regional fiber networks for schools, universities, libraries and businesses have seen a 35%-40% decrease in bandwidth use.
No surprise there it said as traffic has shifted to residential service given teleworking and distance learning.
Business voice service is down 10%-25%. No surprise there either as call volume moves to mobile voice from home.
