Cisco recently unveiled the new edition of its Broadband Index which demonstrates the demandingthis increase in French people regarding the quality of their Internet connection. Conducted with nearly 60,000 working people across 30 countries, with a particular focus on France, the study questions their opinion on their access to the Internet, the quality of theirconnection and their use of broadband at home.
Remi Durand Gasselin, Southern European Sales DirectorGlobal Service Providers at Cisco, deciphers the results of this study.
What are the key findings of the Cisco Broadband Index 2022 and the notable changes compared to the previous edition?
France is in a positive dynamic with regard to the deployment of a quality Internet throughout the territory and it has set itself ambitious objectives so that all to each pswitzerland have access to quality connectivity quickly. Then how explain this mixed feeling that is shared by French workers regarding the quality of their internet connection?
Cisco’s Broadband Index 2022 study highlights that activeFrench people are particularly concerned about their Internet connection as it plays a major role in the professional and private sphere. Confinements and teleworking have accentuated the demands of the French who now expect the government toment, local authorities and businesses, increased investment to accelerate this deployment.
It is also observed that changes in the approach to work organization have intensified the geographical mobility of employeesrs… but not at any price! For 66% of French working people, the broadband Internet speed is became a decisive factor to consider when moving house.
How Cisco can help with the deployment of very high speed in France and to prepare for “The Internet of the Future”?
Cisco is a long-standing ally of France to support it in its digital transformation. Since 2015, more than 300 million euros have been invested to support innovation within the ecosystem betweenFrench takeover.
The relationship that Cisco maintains with France is very strong and, more than ever, we are making all our expertise available for the deployment of very high speed throughout France thanks to our partners and operators. telecoms. At the same time, we also consider that cybersecurity and digital inclusion issues must be at the heart of this development.
Why is access to a quality Internet essential for the development of SMEs?
The pandemic has had the main effect of increasing connectivity requirements. Today, the professional activity of nearly a third of French workers depends on the quality of their Internet connection at home. In fact, 30% of working people questioned as part of the Broadband Index 2022 tell us that they rely on their own connection to work or run their business.
But the connectivity issue is even more pressing for SMEs that do not have the same information resources and infrastructure.rmatic than large companies. SMEs represent 99% of French companies, so it is essential to be able to provide them with a high-performance and secure broadband network.
How has the democratization of hybrid work braised needs in terms of very high speed connection and cybersecurity?
The least that can be said is that hybrid working has become commonplace and is now rooted in the practices of French working people, who are 33% at the end of their career.claim to use a broadband connection daily for at least 7 hours. They have therefore logically become more demanding in terms of the quality of their Internet connection. Unfortunately, 73% of workers remain dissatisfied with current services deemed insufficient to support blended working.
In addition, French workers are demanding an improvement in their Internet connection but also guarantees in terms of security. The democratization of hybrid work has increased the number of conneLet’s access enterprise applications from networks that are more vulnerable than those in the workplace. This is why it remains essential to provide employees with the tools and solutions necessary to securely access private data.are. Freedom of choice of workplace should not come at the expense of safety! This freedom, 42% of French working people hold it strongly, the latter declaring themselves ready to invest more to ensure that they have a connection secure broadband.
The desire for flexibility was again expressed in a recent Cisco study conducted after the Broadband Index. We learn that 74.5% of French employees say they are happier since they have had the opportunity to workr from wherever they want. This positive feeling directly benefits companies since 6 out of 10 French employees surveyed say they are more productive since the introduction of hybrid work.
Why are the next few yearscrucial for bridging the digital divide?
The question of Internet access goes beyond the professional world. 72% of working people in France link economic growth to a fast and reliable Internet connection, while 67% consider it essentialnable to maintaining good quality education and information transmission.
By making people more connected than ever, the pandemic has brought to light the realities of the digital divide. Cisco believes that connectivity is essential to creating a society and economy in which all citizens can participate and thrive. Next-generation wireless technologies like 5G and Wi-Fi 6 can help us bridge this digital divide. Acting quickly to improve internet access means working for digital inclusion.
