Is it the Olympics ?


[link to this post]
 
It is 3.30pm and most of the nodes are full (see link below). I am getting no speed at all on usenet because Slough is in the red (it is not even connecting at 1KB). What is taking up so much traffic today ? Are people watching the Olympics online ?

Usenet is usually very slow for me during peak hours, so I prefer to use the test files on this site. Test files confirm that Columbo is painfully slow for me right now.

Yep - I reckon it is! It's like the 'bad old days' frown

The nodes have cooled off now as all the office workers have stopped watching the sport... Things were holding up better at the start of the week but it looks like people are getting hooked. I wonder how other ISPs are coping?


Thanks for the link smile

Specifically at that time, Andy Murray was expected on court and wasn't, but Federer was playing Del Potro and it went to 19-17 in the third set. Quite apart from the rest.
