Hello,
Since the closure of MegaUpload, traffic
of our network has sharply increased. In 2-3 days
we went from 450-520-460Gbps to 530Gbps is
a "small" increase of 10-15%, with the same
number of customers. Generally during this time
of year it nothing happens. And there, in space
of a weekend, our network has won 60-70Gbps! After the research the only explanation we have found and internal networks of ISPs in Europe have been saturated. Our traffic with the same QoS than MegaUpload, these IP packets to get into fights with site visitors / customers of ISPs in Europe. It's about much of Europe since the highly visible in France, Poland, Spain as Germany, Italy or Belgium. It is very obvious. In short, thanks to the fact that MegaUpload released the band -width, our network immediately took an advantage of this bandwidth, and our existing customers have experienced improved quality of bandwidth to all ISPs in Europe. The only exception is Orange (AS3215) in France, where the bandwidth is strictly the same as before. two assumptions: the internal network of Orange does not saturate or QoS OVH has been given priority over MegaUpload and therefore on a saturated network traffic our going first. In short, no effect MegaUpload Orange Regards Octave

Hello,

since the closure of MegaUpload, traffic
on our network has sharply increased. In 2-3 days
we went from 450-460Gbps to 520-530Gbps. It's
a "small" increase of 10-15%, with the same
number of customers. Generally during this period
of the year nothing happens. And there, in space
a weekend, our network has won 60-70Gbps!

According to research the only explanation we
found that networks and internal ISPs in
Europe were saturated. Our traffic with the same
QoS than MegaUpload, all IP packets
brawling to get to site visitors / customers
ISPs in Europe. It's about much of Europe since it's
very visible in France, Poland, Spain
as Germany, Italy or Belgium. It is very obvious.

In short, because of the fact that MegaUpload released the
bandwidth, our network immediately took a part of
this bandwidth, and our existing customers have
recorded an improved quality of bandwidth
to all ISPs in Europe.

The only exception is Orange (AS3215) in France, where
bandwidth is strictly the same as before.
Two assumptions: the internal network of Orange does not saturate
or QoS OVH has been given priority over
MegaUpload and so towards a saturated network our traffic
is going first. In short, no MegaUpload effect at Orange
