Whether for work or leisure, the use of the country’s telecommunications infrastructure has risen by 40% in terms of domestic internet and 25% in mobile internet use, Orange reported yesterday in a statement. In the same way that Orange, other telecommunication companies are also suffering havoc to keep the internet afloat and avoid a saturation of the network, Telefónica also joined in and called for responsible consumption of the means at our disposal.

Companies are working to meet growing demand, but it is important that consumers and users act accordingly to do our bit, and between us all act responsibly. That is why today we bring you a series of tips and recommendations to help you not to saturate the network and spend less data, so you can enjoy the internet without problems.

With these tips and recommendations we will be able to continue enjoying our internet with total naturalness, and it will only mean some changes in our settings and adapt our use a little bit in order not to saturate the network in key moments.

Activate Reduced Data Mode

iOS 13 includes a low-data consumption mode that will lower our network usage on devices such as the iPhone or iPad. To activate it, just follow these steps:

  • 1st: Open “Settings”.
  • 2º: Enter in Mobile Data.
  • 3º: Click on “Options”.
  • 4º: Slide the slider of the last option where it indicates “Reduced data mode”.

With this mode active the use of data from our device in the background will decrease . Photos will automatically stop being uploaded to iCloud, automatic app previews and downloads will be stopped and when using streaming services the data transfer will be adapted to the optimal network usage. FaceTime calls will also be affected and their quality will be lowered while this mode is active.

We can disable this mode at any time by returning to this same menu in “Settings” and sliding the button again to make normal use of the network.

It avoids the use of mass emails and uses tools such as Microsoft Teams for communication in the workplace. This allows the network not to be saturated with heavy messages and to work in a much more agile way, while at the same time allows teamwork and fluid communication .

The heaviest tasks best for the hours with the least network traffic

As we said previously, the tasks that use more data volume and network usage will be better if we leave them for the night, since the volume of traffic decreases with respect to the day. Uploading videos to YouTube, playing online games, streaming games etc. These activities should be done when the network traffic is not as saturated as during the day, so the browsing experience will be much more satisfactory and at the same time you will contribute to avoid an overload of the infrastructure.

Fortunately Spain is equipped with a fiber network that gives it first place in infrastructure at the European level and third worldwide so despite this increase in traffic the network should support the use. However, as it is often said, prevention is better than cure, and as the coronavirus is making us demonstrate the solidarity and responsibility of each of us as users, it is key to succeed in this situation. Do you have any tricks to make a responsible use of the network? Don’t hesitate to share it with us in the comments section!
