The Olympic Demand

Last week saw the final of Euro 2012 and the end of a three-week festival of football. It also saw the end of a three-week surge in Internet traffic. With an estimated 11 million visitors expected for London 2012, network operators and broadcasters are preparing themselves for another surge in Internet traffic.

Over the course of the Olympics the UK's leading mobile operators will make some massive investments to provide extra capacity when needed. The BBC expects the demand of the broadcasters online streaming service iPlayer to soar to 1Tbps - 10 times the amount that was generated in 2006!

Enjoy the games this year, on all of your devices!
