However you feel about the latest government spending review, Chancellor George Osborne sure can draw a crowd. There is huge interest surrounding the announcements made today and many people are following live on the BBC iPlayer.
Streaming traffic on the BBC iPlayer hit 1.7 Gbits/second this afternoon, a record for a political steam and much more than the budget earlier this year, BBC iPlayer traffic at this time in the day is usually 0.8 Gbits/second. We often see increased iPlayer usage around high profile events, when these events are in the middle of the day there's plenty of capacity to match demand, peak time events pose more of a problem however we have our traffic management systems to help us maintain a good level of service to all customers.
The graph below shows the BBC iPlayer traffic today and yesterday.
