ActiveGroup sees booming demand for video streaming amid volcano disruption

New business UK

UK— Focus group video streaming firm ActiveGroup has seen its business take off while flights across Europe have been grounded because of the volcanic eruption in Iceland.

International business development head Dan Foreman claims the company’s phones have not stopped ringing since Friday, the day most of Europe’s airspace went into lockdown.

Business was at its peak on Monday and Tuesday of this week, said Foreman, “with twice as many bookings as we have had before”.

Foreman would not disclose exact numbers of bookings, but among the repeat customers were 10 “entirely new end-client businesses”, he said.

Demand is likely to ease in the next few days as flights resume across Europe, however Foreman believes business will remain buoyant amid a lingering sense of caution and concern over flight safety and the fear of new ash clouds.

It is great to see how how this site gets filled with yet more rubbish or should I assume the editorial department has been clouded in ashes?
