Sandvine: Network Traffic Dips 15% during Super Bowl

Network traffic dipped by about 15% during the Super Bowl, according to Sandvine, which analyzed data from an network operator in the eastern U.S.

The Super Bowl was streamed live via the CBS website, which saw a substantial spike in traffic for the broadcast.  However, this traffic amounted to 3% of the total, leading Sandvine to conclude that the majority of viewers tuned in via regular TV over cable, satellite or free over-the-air.

This happened last year as well, according to Sandvine's blog.
