Internet traffic

A quick way to understand the volume of traffic in some part of the Internet is to read the current  latencyfigures that are being reported on The Internet Health Report, a service provided by Keynote at http://www.internetpulse.com/.

In addition to the Internet Health Report, several major Internet backbone providers have Web sites that post hourly or more frequent statistics on how fast data is travelling on their backbone lines and the percentage of data packets that are being lost. Our table summarizes these sites, the information they provide, and how often they are updated.
