Pre-Budget Report - Lots of people watch online

The Chancellor Alistair Darling made his pre-budget speech this afternoon with a raft of changes. We won't go into the implications of these changes as part of this blog but instead just post a few facts and figures about the actual "broadcast". With coverage of the speech available via the BBC website (which uses the same technology as the BBC iPlayer) lots of people watched the speech online. Whilst we haven't analysed all of the data yet, we'd suspect that a large proportion of the people watching online will be business customers watching from the office. We saw a spike in iPlayer traffic up to 544Mbps; half an hour before the speech iPlayer traffic was around 200Mbps. That would represent somewhere between 700 and 1000 of our customers watching the speech online (or around 0.5% of all the customers online at the time). This graph shows the spike in traffic starting around 3:30pm. Kind Regards, Dave Tomlinson Plusnet Product Team
