Since COVID-19 started, my wife and I switched to working remotely, with days filled with video conferences. The only way for my kid to connect to school and close friends is via the internet. At the end of the day, we are connected to the internet for news and entertainment as well. This is likely the same dynamic for others now as well. After some research, I found that my internet provider saw a surge in upstream (upload) traffic by 32% and downstream (download) traffic by 18%.
