Inaugural Bandwidth

Friday, January 23rd, 2009

The presidential inauguration was this week. At work I was asked to setup two projection systems to show live TV to big audiences. Since the actual swearing-in happened at lunch-time, all the kids at school (and everyone else) were able to congregate in one of these areas and witness history. Since everyone had a chance to watch it on TV, I expected some but not too much extra internet traffic from people streaming from or another site.

This is what a normal day of internet traffic through our Road Runner connection looks like:

This is what it looked like the day of the inauguration:

It was completely maxed the whole day. I expected this for the hour around lunch time, but not the whole day.
