Increasing numbers of workers distracted by World Cup

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.

The Spain versus Switzerland game yesterday 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.

So it is getting higher. I wonder how much it will increase on 23 June when England takes on Slovenia its final group match.
