I'm not writing about sports now, but rather about Wits's recent climb to the number 1 position on the unofficial bandwidth rankings:
Their monitoring graph shows peaks above 60 Mbps, and TENET's order status page shows an upgrade of their backbone link to 57920 kbps.
UCT's monitoring page show the same old peaks, with an upcoming 43008 kbps link as a consolation prize. This is obviously what was under test over the last week or two.
And it's interesting to see a new 'five-thirds' formula mentioned. Taking UCT's international commit of 26 Mbps and multiplying by 5/3 yields about 43 Mbps. Fully 40% of traffic is expected to be local! TENET: how about showing some flow statistics to the IS Akamai clusters?
