Yesterday afternoon (18th October) we received some reports of slow internet.
RM suspect that there was a Google update released which resulted in higher than usual volumes of traffic – and this in turn would cause a slow internet experience. Typically, the RM transit (for Google) utilises at a maximum of 8Gbps, but yesterday it went over 10Gbps.
In fact there were three instances yesterday where the transit bandwidth utilisation exceeded the capacity, timescales for which are updated below.
RM is closely monitoring the situation.
