It is worth mentioning that the streaming of more bitrate videos increases the pressure on the network and there is a risk of network jam in the event of more demand.
An Amazon Prime Video spokesperson said in an e-mail statement that many people are at home full-time because of the corona virus. In such a situation, we support telecom companies so that they can properly manage the increased demand for internet.
He said that the company has started reducing the bitrate of its video streaming in India. The spokesperson said that Amazon Prime Video is working closely with local authorities, mobile service providers and Internet service providers to help in case of any problem of internet network jam.

It has been started in Italy and Spain and will be gradually implemented throughout Europe and the UK. Due to the lockdown, most of the companies are adopting the policy of working from home. In such a situation, the demand for internet has increased.
