Net Traffic Down on Swedish Antipiracy Law
It looks as though some people, at least for now, are scared of the new antipiracy law that took effect in Sweden yesterday. How long will this downturn in net traffic last?
As of 2 p.m. local time Wednesday in Sweden, Internet traffic was down about 30 percent from the day before, according to Computer Sweden (in Swedish). The average traffic over Netnod, a company that measures most of the Internet traffic access points between Swedish and international networks, was 80Gbps Wednesday compared to Tuesday's 120Gbps. Traffic had been steady the previous week.
