Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

Here's another indicator to how fast the Internet is growing. The London Internet Exchange (Linx) has reported traffic levels are busting 3Gbps at peak times.

Linx states it is the largest exchange point in Europe.

Traffic peaks at around 2pm BST when the US starts coming on line.

Linx broke the one Gbps barrier just before the end of 1999. And though the rule of thumb is usually a doubling of traffic every 100 days Linx has been slightly cautious and just predicts it will break 5Gbps by the end of 2000. ®
