Since Wednesday, peak internet traffic each day exceeded any other night previously.

The former internet traffic record was last year’s All Blacks World Cup match against South Africa.

Last night was slightly down on Friday’s peak, but about 30 percent higher than a normal Saturday.

Just before 9pm last night, 2.82 terabytes of data was being transferred per second – the equivalent of 600,000 movies being watched at the same time.
