T-Mobile has reported a spike in demand for its mobile broadband services yesterday (Monday, February 2nd) as many Brits were snowed indoors.
Large areas of the south-east and Midlands were left coated in thick snow after an overnight downpour, meaning employees could not reach their workplaces in the morning.
This could explain the 20 per cent rise in demand for mobile broadband services witnessed by T-Mobile and reported by the BBC.
A spokesman for T-Mobile told the news provider that the upsurge in broadband use seen over the day on its network could be put down to increased home working.
For those not forced to work from their home broadband connection, transport was an issue.
Transport for London's (TfL) website crashed as hundreds of thousands of travellers checked the address for news on buses, tubes, trains and trams.
