  • [Eurogamer] Call of Duty: Warzone release and Red Dead Redemption 2 update spark record internet traffic in UK

    BT, the operator of the UK's largest telecoms network, told the Financial Times that Tuesday night last week, during which Champions League football matches were also played, saw a peak of 17.5 terabits per second. Normal weekday traffic around midday is in the four to five terabits per second range.

    The Red Dead Redemption 2 update 1.19 released on Tuesday on PC (700MB), PlayStation 4 (600MB) and Xbox One (3GB) - the one that tackled annoying camp glitches in Red Dead Online. While this update no doubt sparked increased playtime in Rockstar's epic, the release of Call of Duty: Warzone will have had a bigger impact on BT's network. If you had Call of Duty: Modern Warfare fully installed, you were looking at a 15-22GB update to play the battle royale. But if you wanted to parachute straight into Warzone via the standalone free-to-download client, you were faced with an eye-watering 80-100GB download. I think I'm still downloading it.

    Interesting. What with people staying at home, I think we're seeing a lot more internet traffic across the board. Probably won't have any lasting effects since it's not too drastic, at least not yet, but it's something to think about for similar future events.
