The Internet Society in a report said that during the COVID-19 pandemic, many have shifted their day-to-day activities to online.
According to the new report of Internet Society, the Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Internet Performance in Afghanistan, examines the impact of this fall in the performance and quality of Internet services in the country on online users.
Informed by an online survey, taken by two hundred Internet users – predominantly tech-savvy city dwellers with access to the Internet – the report reveals there is a decline in Internet performance in Afghanistan.
It shows that though the performance decline frustrated online users, more are increasingly spending on high-speed Internet.
The research advocates for government and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to take advantage of the situation and accelerate efforts to increase network capacity and reliability to address the performance gaps.
