Starting today, and for the rest of this week, the World Cup games double up. Rather than one game at time, three times a day, we'll be getting two games simultaneously, twice a day. So, what effect will this have on Internet traffic and corporate networks? Will bandwidth demand double, as people want to follow both games on their desktop? Perhaps a little less than double, depending on how many dedicated fans there are, and the quality of the teams playing in each time slot?
On the continent, we at least get some benefit from the fact that there is no longer a game at 13:30, and the first two games don't start until 16:00. It's going to be interesting to see how it develops.
