No World Cup bandwidth drain

Daniel Thomas
IT users' interest in the World Cup will have no adverse effect on network bandwidth, according to the majority of IT managers responding to this week's Computer Weekly/Harvey Nash Big Question poll.

Some industry experts have warned that network bandwidth will suffer when the World Cup starts next week because of users surfing for football news, sharing their views and distributing content such as video clips.

However, 70% of this week's respondents said they are not worried about the issue. "If any employees are found to be spending significant amounts of time visiting World Cup related sites, they will be spoken to," explained one IT manager.
