With internet usage more than doubling in 2020, it has come to light how impactful the pandemic was on our independent internet activity.
“Stay Home, Protect the NHS, Save Lives”. The message was clear, and we have worked together to save as many as we could at the expense of our freedom.
Yet almost a year after the UK’s first lockdown, the country has now entered its third.
Having spent months and months stuck inside their homes, the internet has become a channel to regains some of the freedoms people were missing.
Shopping, socialising, entertaining, teaching, working. The essential day-to-day activities that required people to be out and about all became digital in 2020.
Has the pandemic changed how we fundamentally complete these tasks?
With many curious what will happen after the pandemic, it has become obvious that the nations usage of the internet won’t slow down. But why should it?
On one hand, the internet has helped to provide comfort in a time of crisis; it has improved communications in health care settings when it was needed the most; and it shown many that they can work from home just as effectively as they could in the office.
On the other, it has shown us that a slow or unreliable internet connection can lead to frustration, isolation and lack of productivity in the virtual workplace.
In fact, a recent study by OnePoll showed that slow or unreliable internet connectivity resulted in an average loss of 1 week of productivity per employee per year.
