Star Wars: The Force Awakens Slows Down The Internet Upon Release
Web security firm Imperva monitored web traffic during the Star Wars film premiere of The Force Awakens reporting the following results.
The Imperva Incapsula network monitored a 4.09% decline in US and 3.64% in Canada at the time of the first IMAX screenings.
US traffic for the next 24 hours declined by 5.15%, likely as a result of West coast screenings having a compound effect. This could also be attributed to people staying offline to avoid reading any spoilers.
