»Deconstructing The Exaflood Myth
Between 2007 and 2008, average traffic utilization levels decreased from 31 percent to 29 percent while peak utilization fell from 44 percent to 43 percent.
The above is for international
traffic utilization of the internet.
But checking the Telegeography news site, that is NOT TRUE for the US backbone.
While utilisation on international links to Europe and Asia fell in 2008, they rose in the US & Canada and Latin American where traffic growth outpaced the deployment of new internet bandwidth.
