When do they turn off social media?

Already reports that some online services are crashing due to scaling issues, and rumours that they don't want to close schools as the net won't cope when Billy is sat home playing Xbox and Sharon watching YouTube vids of celebrity influences. 

So how long before traffic is severely throttled on sites where Joe Public has a voice, in the name of QoS for home workers?

I can see stuff like YouTube being turned off between 9-6pm every day. Also gaming servers and steam downloads.

It probably makes sense really if they want people to work from home.

I assume gamers can solo play

With a lot of modern games, no.

Its cheaper to let other players be the opponents than develop AI. Modern AI sucks... see spygirl.

Not long I would have thought.

Businesses wanted everything to be in the cloud, now we may find out how resilient that will be, which is another factor along with bandwidth.

I've noticed online performance degradation over the weekend, I should expect that to worsen in a full lockdown.

I'm out of the technology game as of last year, but I wouldn't mind being a fly on the wall now.

One of the many deciding factors in me throwing in the towel was the total lack of interest in stress testing and business continuity preparedness, along with cyber security.

Glad I'm out of it. I have a lot of books on my list to catch up on.

What are people doing for their work that requires so much bandwidth?   
 

..apart from YouTube and gaming servers  :D

Turning off social media would help allay some of the panic though..  so might not be a completely bad thing.

My wife had phone calls from her worried family last night asking if we were all ok and that they’d heard the UK was going into lockdown and that you couldn’t buy food any more etc etc..   my wife had no idea what they were talking about..  “uh,  yeah.. it’s a bit hard to get toilet roll and bread flour..  but apart from that we’re fine o.O

Sounds like someone's got trust issues, probably born from the fact your boss does nothing but masterbate and eat sugar puff sandwiches when he/she is "working from home"

Always be wary of boss's who don't trust their team to WFH, it's likely they're just projecting their own terrible work discipline

Most buisness uses cloud services anyway, office 365  etc, so demand wont go up as much as you might think. 

It will be the video conferencing services thst will increase most. Teams and Zoom had problems yesterday. But it wasnt bandwidth that was the problem, MS scaled up and  resolved the issues.

Also, tell him/her your internet isn't unlimited so if he insists on such measures he can pay for your new unlimited BR advand contract.

Sounds like a prize cunny-hole to me

Just to clarify, I was talking about bosses in general causing systemic collapse.

That this also describes my boss is purely coincidental.

Or tether through your company phone and let them pay for their own exuberance ..  most data is charged at pence/mb over the contract limit.

Might make it very busy overnight when people are downloading stuff to watch offline during the next day.

So long as Pornhub stays up all will be fine.

Surely as a true dosbodder you will have already downloaded an emergency allocation on to a USB stick and added it to your prepers stash. 

Better yet copied some on to Floppy disks 

Could even go a little further and add two copies of Fiesta to the official dosbodders stash list along side the beans and petrol generators.

With Youtube slowly turning into another Pay TV service I have been downloading interesting looking/niche interest stuff for months already.
