Internet usage has skyrocketed with people watching the Inauguration of new US President Barack Obama online. At first glance it looks like even more people are watching this than went online to watch the Beijing Olympics.
The picture below shows a snapshot of traffic over the London Access Point (LONAP) exchange.
It looks to me from the right hand peak as if traffic has risen almost 50% over the same time yesterday. This compares with around 24% increase seen by Timico during the Olympics (see post). Fortunately Timico has the capacity to cope.
