Tamara O’Brien, Head of Marketing for JT, said: “These stats tell the real story behind Jersey Live. Thousands of people gathered in one place, for the CI’s biggest music event and turned to social media to share their experiences in real-time. Getting the most from the technology we provided. There are big numbers here. We’re proud to have supported the demand for so much data over the weekend.
“The mobile data used on Saturday alone was the equivalent of 53,000 MP3 files. Thus, showing just how much festival-goers enjoyed sharing their photos and videos. Especially on their social channels, by using our fastest 4G network. Many of them also took advantage of our recent network upgrade providing up to 30% faster 4G speeds on the latest handsets. Interestingly, Snapchat has now overtaken other platforms allowing people to share videos and images instantly. This will continue to drive demand for seamless data services like those we provided this weekend. Once again Jersey Live attracted record numbers and it was great to ensure everyone could stay connected throughout. As well as our role in supporting the local music talent, which got a chance to play through the Battle of the Bands competition we supported.”
