A recent statement released by Worldlink confirmed that WorldLink’s bandwidth issue related to TikTok is resolved now. Worldlink users had been facing bandwidth related issues for TikTok during the peak hour. Besides Worldlink, other ISPs too are facing this bandwidth issue due to the recent change in the security protocol of TikTok.
Worldlink is one of the biggest internet service provider in Nepal. It is trusted by many customers as their ISP. However, recently users were facing a bandwidth issue when they used TikTok. Although the internet was working fine, TikTok videos took longer to load and play during peak hours. With a high number of customers using TikTok, the Worldlink’s bandwidth issue caused a real problem to the customers and raised their concern on this issue.
What caused Worldlink’s bandwidth issue related to TikTok?
The bandwidth issue with TikTok did not just occur with Worldlink, but with other ISPs as well. This is because TikTok just recently updated its security protocol and upgraded it from HTTP protocol to HTTPS protocol. The HTTPS protocol is a more secure protocol than the HTTP which provides more security.
Because of this sudden change in the security protocol of TikTok, the cache was not able to be stored in Akamai’s local server. Previously, Akamai’s local server used to store the cache so that using TikTok would be faster. But because of this change, the cache could not be stored, and TikTok started becoming slower to the users and it used more than 25% of the international bandwidth which brought trouble to the internet users.
