Facebook and Netflix have decided to cut data so that the network does not get jammed during the lockdown.

Social media giant Facebook and video service provider Netflix have announced a cut in their data in the wake of apprehensions of a network of telephone companies. They believe that people will stay in homes during the announced lockdown due to Corona virus and at that time they will use the Internet more.

Facebook said it would reduce the byte rate while cutting the quality of photos and videos. India is the largest market for Facebook and Instagram.

On the other hand, Netflix said in a statement that it will reduce the load of the Indian telecom network by 25 percent in the next 30 days.

He has done this in Europe as well. This will reduce the burden of internet provider companies, while the use of these websites and apps will not be interrupted.
