UK MNOs: We did Well During the Olympic Games; US Streamers Like Athletics

Chris Donkin reports to mobile news that "Network operators claim to have coped well after experiencing rises of up to 80 per cent in voice and data services at Olympic venues during the first week of the London 2012 Games. Everything Everywhere, Three, O2, and Vodafone all reported a good service during the events as a result of multimillion-pound upgrade investments to cope with demand".
"Everything Everywhere said it had experienced a 70 to 80 per cent rise at venues and tourist hotspots, as well as a 10 per cent increase across the rest of the UK as customers accessed 3G services .. Vodafone also reported a sharp increase in data use across the UK, with a 20 per cent rise in the number of its customers accessing Facebook during the opening ceremony and 300,000 following events live on Twitter"
