The First ISP victim

A small ISP has been hit by the BBC World Cup streaming effect and had to put in place emergency traffic shaping measures. You read the predication that this would happen first here.

Now if the BBC had got its' finger out and deployed multi-casting technology the problem would have been non-existant. I dread to think of the strain on the BBC's servers tomorrow evening at 5pm. I predict a crash and an England victory.
