At Fluidata we are always intrigued by the traffic surges we see on our business network during sporting events. We’ve been recording and sharing this information for a number of years now and knew that the Olympics was likely to take traffic levels on our network to an unprecedented level.

The biggest surge in traffic came on Wednesday around 3pm, when we witnessed an astonishing 100% increase in traffic on normal levels. Bradley Wiggins’ time trail victory just happened to be taking place at that time.
