Columbian ISP sees 100% bandwidth spike for World Cup

Data delivery network service provider DiViNetworks has been monitoring the spikes in network traffic behaviour during the early matches of the World Cup, and reports that more fans are viewing live sports events over a non-broadcast infrastructure, creating spikes in bandwidth consumption of over 100%.

Network traffic consumption jumped by more than 100% at a Columbian ISP where only a few thousands of its customers chose to watch the World Cup matches over the Internet. During the Uruguay vs. Costa Rica match, demand for bandwidth more than doubled from 3Gbps to 7Gbps even though the number of users did not increase.
