In March, the European Union asked internet content providers, including Netflix and YouTube, to restrict the amount of data on their services due to congestion on broadband internet networks.

Videos up to 4K HDR quality can be watched again in Europe at 15Mbps.
At the time of the pandemic, the original bit rate of 15 Mbps was limited to 7.62 Mbps, the minimum speed required to provide 4K data traffic. Not all European countries will notice the improvement immediately, it may take some time, while the Hungarians may experience it.
In addition to Netflix, Apple, Amazon, and YouTube have also restricted their streaming quality in Europe. Apple TV + is back to old quality at the end of April.
