Swedish Internet traffic stays down

It’s not snapping back, and it’s been over a month now. I’m astonished still, especially that none of the analysts covering Cisco and Juniper has picked this up, if only to reassure the punters they don’t have to worry about it. After all, a global pushback by The Man against illegal file sharing is not a serious trend (it’s only a European Union directive). The chart comes courtesy of CNET.

Overall Swedish Internet traffic apparently dropped drastically on April 1 when a new antipiracy law went into effect. The graph represents traffic in gigabits per second through Netnod, the major Swedish node for exchange of traffic between operators.
