Cachelogic has been pointing out for a long time that the majority of net trafffic is caused by P2P appliactions. But how is that playing out throughout the day? Are people downloading a lot from the office, or is P2P more of a nighttime activity? The British ISP Plusnet is publishing network monitoring data in real time. This is what Plusnet's customers have been doing over the last 48 hours:

Looks like web traffic is more dominant in the daytime, as P2P stays pretty much constant 24/7. It is worth mentioning tho that Plusnet is limiting P2P traffic data during peak hours, which might explain why we don't see a higher spike after school.
