Study finds businesses notice rising demand for bandwidth
The vast majority of businesses have seen significant and increased demand for bandwidth due to the growing use of smart mobile devices, according to new research.

Commissioned by BT and Cisco, the study discovered that 84 per cent of global organisations surveyed had noticed this trend, with 56 per cent of IT managers observing a resulting decline in the performance of some applications. This in turn had a negative impact on the potential productivity gains delivered by some smart devices.

Among workers with IT access in their office, just under half have experienced delays when accessing or logging in to an application, while more than one-third have detected a noticeable drop in speed.

In light of these findings, three in four respondents said their employer needs to take further steps to ensure that the full potential of smart devices is being achieved.

Neil Sutton, Vice President of Global Portfolio at BT Global Services, said: "Behind every great device you need a great performing network. 

"With the right control and connectivity you can deliver a great user experience on any device."
