The mobile operator Yota analyzed how the Internet traffic of the Telegram application changed from January to May 2022.
According to Yota, from February to March 2022, there was a noticeable jump in traffic and the number of messenger users. In March 2022, the operator’s customers spent almost twice as much monthly traffic on this application as in February 2022. The number of users increased by 1.2 times over this period. In April and May 2022, both indicators remained approximately the same.
For the week from June 6 to June 12, 2022, Yota customers spent 1.6 times more traffic on Telegram than in the week from February 14 to February 20, 2022. The number of users for the same week in June 2022 was 1.2 times more than in February.
“The jump in traffic and the number of users occurred during a period of restrictions on various social networks, which may explain the increase in the popularity of the Telegram messenger. However, traffic volumes have grown more noticeably than the number of users – few have chosen Telegram as a replacement for other social networks, but those who switched to the messenger began to use it much more often, ”said Irina PyuskyulyanYota Marketing Director.
