Argentina world cup match fails to distract UK workers

Here is the latest internet traffic monitor from managed service provider Star. It has been monitoring the impact that live streaming of World Cup games during office hours is having on UK traffic.

Today we see how the daytime traffic was for the Argentina versus South Korea game and the Greece/Nigeria match.

There was only a tiny increase above the normal daytime traffic for the Argentina/South Korea game and the Greece/Nigeria match only increased 14% above the  norm.

The Spain versus Switzerland game on Wednesday saw a 26% increase on the usual level for that time. The previous day, when Portugal took on the Ivory Coast saw traffic 23% over the norm. Daytime traffic was 18% up the first few days of the tournament.

Below is the graph of UK internet traffic, during office hours on Thursday.
