Many surfers around the country and around the world today report slowness in the Internet surfing experience. Internet providers in Israel confirm that this is indeed a global problem, which occurs every time the developer, Afik Games, releases an update to Fortnite to the network. The update creates a lot of congestion on the Internet in the world, since a large number of players download the file at the same time.

Internet providers in Israel, unlike infrastructure companies Bezeq and HOT, are the body that connects the user to the global Internet network and, among other things, are also responsible for surfing speed. Fortnite is an online shooting game launched in a premium model (free download and in-game purchases) in 2017 and has since become very popular, with over 350 million users.

Fortnight

Users report that whenever a new update is released to the game, the download and installation process takes a long time, sometimes several hours, depending on the size of the file, which can reach several gigabytes. Fortnight has even apologized to players in the past for particularly heavy update files.

This morning (Wednesday) a 14.40 update of the game was released to the network, and the providers expect a relief in the network load during the evening. A similar problem occurred in the past during Apple’s software updates, but in recent years the iPhone maker has been gradually releasing the update to users to prevent it from crashing and slowing down.
